Established in 1974, Heritage Coffee serves locally roasted coffees, along with gelato, fresh pastries, and specialty drinks. The same folks operate several other coffee outposts, including the Glacier Cafe in the Mendenhall Valley, which has a more substantial menu that includes burritos and omelets for breakfasts and, later in the day, panini, wraps, soups, salads, burgers, and various vegetarian dishes. Heritage Coffee's Second Street Cafe, two blocks
up the hill from the main location, has outdoor seating. The local downtown market, Foodland IGA, hosts a self-contained café inside the store. Kiosks can also be found in other locations, including the airport and the University of Alaska Southeast.
