Rating: Star*Star*Star*Star*Star*

Southeast Alaska is giving the Deep South a run for its culinary money and gives southern cooking a whole new meaning.  Two guys from Mississippi have graced Skagway’s main street – Broadway -- with comfort foods. I should know, my Virginia southern roots told me so. I grew up eating grits and mustard greens with vinegar.

Wander past Broadway’s "we serve Starbucks" crowd and find yourself at Bites on Broadway. Lucky me, to find them just across the road from my lodging at Historic Skagway Inn. In the morning, I could peek out to see the lights were on and wander across the street for fresh-brewed coffee before the sunrise. That's saying something when it's July in Alaska. The owners, Nils and Skipper, learned the fine art of southern cooking Bites on Broadway Cheese biscuit with sweet potato butter Credit Are You That Womanfrom their mothers -- and they were excellent students. It was the plain cake doughnut that caught my eye on the first visit. And while munching away, spotted the cheese biscuit and something about sweet potato butter (instead of apple). OMG! Not ashamed to say I wolfed this down and still dreaming of that delightful moment. Hey, can I try a little of the Alaskan Salmon Chowder? Another taste bud celebration.

There weren't enough days or hours to eat everything on the menu. Clearly the locals have embraced this breakfast and lunch destination. So did I, more than once! Still dreaming about this down south in Northern California, y'all!
