The team at WakeUp wants to make it as simple as possible for their customers to come in and get coffee. Patrons can call ahead to put in a drink order and save time during morning commutes by skipping the line once they stop in to pick it up. Prepaid drink cards free customers up from counting cash or running a credit card at each visit, and they can even leave the cards at the café for safe keeping. Frequent visitors reap rewards—after every nine drinks purchased they receive one complimentary beverage.
The menu is small but diverse. Baristas brew lattes and americanos from Alaska's own Kaladi Brothers Coffee and flavor mochas with white or dark chocolate. Steam continues to annoy gravity by rising from cups of hot tea or apple cider. For breakfast, patrons nibble on muffins or bagels with cream cheese, or munch on breakfast sandwiches such as maple pancake with sausage or croissant with egg, sausage and cheese. A weekly rotating lunch menu has boasted sandwiches such as philly cheesesteaks, salmon chowder, and herb-roasted turkey on a torta roll.
