In 2013, a lifelong Cantwell resident and his wife, a gregarious Louisiana transplant with a penchant for meat pies, decided to give a 1970s gas station and Inn a new life.
"JP's Coffee House", a hand pie and espresso shop, opened in July 2017 after extensive interior renovations. Stop in and see us, grab a pie and coffee, sit down and enjoy the view from our warm, bright dining room or the covered porch.
JP's looks forward to serving locals and travelers to the Alaska Range. The accompanying Jack River Inn remains under renovation with plans to open in 2018.
Additionally, a community art and farm market is held on the premises every Sunday 11am-4pm from mid May through September.
