The Stowaway Café, Skagway, Alaska
In addition to a fun setting in an old teal-colored building full of esoteric knickknacks, the Stowaway offers the biggest culinary surprises in a port town bursting with souvenir shops and restaurants. The eclectic menu includes wasabi salmon, jerk halibut with cranberry chutney, acorn squash bisque, and bleu cheese toast. —Edward Readicker Henderson
