Seaview Café, Alaska

I have been posting here on very northern cafés, like Veronica's , Café Natur or the arctic Mellageret café.

This time, a lone and lost café in the middle of nowhere, in some remote area of Alaska, the Seaview Café, at the village of Hope's "main street". It´s a local must, for the views and the food, but it´s hard to understand how it was built in such a place.

Location: 60°55'N 149°38'W

The Seaview is located in the historic town of Hope on the north shore of the Kenai Peninsula , 80 miles from Anchorage, with a view to the waters of Cook Inlet.

Hope was Alaska's first gold mining town, established in the 1890s. Many of the town's original structures, like the Seaview Cafe, Bar & Cabins, still remain within this wild, mountainous, coastal setting.

Breathtaking views of the Kenai and Chugach Mountains and Cook Inlet, a 180-mile-long estuary that stretches northeast from the Gulf of Alaska. Great scenary for a hot meal or a coffee.
