Midnight Sun Cafe
My husband, Michael Williams, and I (Lindsay Williams) set out on this adventure in October 2007, by starting Midnight Sun Cafe. We wanted to create a space that was warm and inviting. Where people could come to relax, and their minds could find sanctuary from the stresses of everyday life. We started by serving the best coffee we could get our hands on. K Bay Coffee & Espresso is Organic and Fairly Traded, locally roasted in Homer, Alaska. We serve a variety of breakfast sandwiches ALL day, unique deli sandwiches and panini, homemade soups, fresh salads with our signature dressings, and baked goods made from scratch with love. We are passionate about great food and warm hospitality. We encourage you to check out our sister cafe, Moose A'La Mode. We are heavily involved in our community and have volunteered our time for local events like Trick or Treat Street, Habitat for Humanity, Heart of Anchorage Awards, and Breast Cancer Focus Inc. We have made numerous in-kind donations to local non-profits and schools for silent auctions supporting fundraising efforts. Midnight Sun Cafe has a partnership with AVAIL High School. We provide them with job shadowing opportunities and provide in-kind incentives for academic performance and attendance. We are also an active member of the Business Industries Class Advisory Board at King Career Center which helps to prepare students for entry-level positions in small business while helping them to identify educational pathways to a more specialized business field. We are also passionate about recycling. Each week we take a truck full of recycling across town. As a restaurant, we create a lot of trash and feel it is our responsibility to do what we can to reduce our footprint. Part of our dream has always been to sew into the community and to make a difference. The cafes have been instrumental in realizing this dream and we look forward to many more years of positively impacting our community. We hope you find joy each day in this life you have been given.
