We usually have a day or two in Juneau to coordinate everyone’s arrival at the airport, shopping for groceries, and generally getting ready for a couple weeks on the water. This means we also need to eat somewhere.One of our favorite stops is Donna’s Restaurant, a classic american diner just a couple blocks from the airport in Mendenhall. Nothing fancy here, just breakfast, burgers and classic diner comfort food. If you have a need for bacon and eggs, breakfast is served all day.
The folks who run Donna’s have opened an ice cream parlor in the next storefront, but you do not need to go next door to eat ice cream after your meal. Shakes and sundaes can be ordered in the restaurant as well.
Donna’s is located just a couple blocks from the airport along Glacier Highway. They are open seven days a week from 6am to 8:30pm. Most meals are $10-15.
