Coffee lovers of Skagway rejoice – a drive-thru coffee shop is coming to town.
Located about a half-mile up the Klondike Highway, See You Latte will feature Kaladi Brothers coffee from Anchorage, Italian sodas, breakfast and lunch provided by Lil Log Cabin Bakery and of course, lattes.
Owner Tracy Sullivan said while there will be minimal seating outside of the yellow building with red trim, it will mainly be a drive through.
Sullivan said the idea came to her after waiting in line for coffee became a constant problem.
“I just want a cup of coffee. Why am I standing in line with all of these tourists?” she asked herself.
That’s when she decided to open up a drive thru.
Open seven days a week, the shop will be open from 5 a.m. to 3 p.m., with its grand opening on July 1.
Sullivan said she will also have limited service in the winter, though times are not yet set.
“It’s all very exciting,” she said.
