This place is exceptional. Quaint, soft and friendly. Spending an early afternoon in this cozy little gem reminded me that life can be so much more appreciated when you slow down and become part of your community. The coffee was hot, fresh and we'll crafted.

Gathering place for this community...great coffee, can order sandwiches/quiches which are excellent. Highly recommend the quiche... if they have any left! Weekends it gets very, very busy. There is a drivethru out in the parking lot for coffee/muffins/cookies...but often you can not find parking. There is some to the north behind adjoining buildings and just a bit of a walk.... More

Nice quiet place. Great for a catch up with friends. I am not a coffee drinker so I was quite impressed with their line of teas. I had a tiger chai latte. It was the best one I have had in a ongoing time. I was a bit disappointed with their bakery selection. Guess I didn't need the calories anyway!

About 30 minutes north of Anchorage, we pulled off into Eagle River for a coffee break. We stumbled upon Jitters after wondering what the queuing cars were waiting for......They were in line to get coffee from a tiny hut dishing out coffee drive through style. This was Jitters, so we parked up and went into their cafe across the parking... More

I've visited this place 5 years ago and then again recently. Oftentimes when I go to a place a few years later I'm not alway as impressed. In this instance I have to admit the coffee and food was even better than our first visit years ago! Loved it so much, we went to Jitters repeatedly during our last visit... More

Jitters is a really good coffee house. Easily the best in Eagle River and in the tops for Anchorage as a whole. It has a great atmosphere inside with a lot of room, although it can get pretty busy on the weekends. If you're in a hurry, they serve the same great coffee in a drive thru coffee hut in... More

Jitters … an expansive coffee house, an adjacent merchandize store connecting it and a drive-thru shack outside. The baristas are knowledgeable and quick on the draw, which is a big draw for those who want it now and be on their way. There are a variety of teas, pastries and food that are scrumptious. A barista said their market is... More

The coffee is good, the tuna melt bagel sandwiches are my daughter's favorite, and it is just a great place for reading, catching up with friends, or just enjoying your cup of coffee! I particularly love visiting Picture This, the shop next door, for a bit of retail therapy! Jitters is a staple in Eagle River for good reason!
