Good breakfast

Had breakfast here one morning. Food was good. Buffet seemed expensive, but looked like it had good food also. Customer service was pretty good, but a little slow.

I had a Lox plate and others had pancakes, and although the food was pretty good, the long wait prevented me from eating there again during my stay at the resort.

Located in the Hotel Alyeska we had breakfast in the café. Very pleasant, comfortable facility. Choice of menu or buffet for breakfast. Food was excellent and the wait staff made sure we had plenty of coffee (important for us). Highly recommend.

The breakfast buffet is great. Staff really goes out of their way to get you anything you need. They all seem to be pretty good travel guides too making good recommendations of things to do in the area while staying. The omelette chef always was so friendly and asking to fix it just to your liking . . . good... More

Even though we were having salmon nearly every night, the smoked salmon omelet was the best ever. Very nice staff and service. $20.

Dined here all three days we were at Alyeska. Great breakfast, very nice breakfast buffet. Excellent service, especially Linda. Enjoyed the Crab Benedict especially. The pond views were very nice and we saw a moose from our table!

Service was very excellent, food off the menu was good. Buffet rather spendy so we kept to the menu.

We were originally going to eat @ the Double Musky & decided against the crowds & ate dinner here in the hotel. It was a quiet, intimate atmosphere with amazing food!

We had the breakfast buffet, They had a pretty good selection but not large compared to other hotel breakfast buffets. They have a create your own omelet bar and the omelet was really good. Lots of fresh fruit, oatmeal, eggs,bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy and pastries were available. We were there when the restaurant was not busy and the staff... More

We visited the pond cafe for breakfast 1 day and dinner another. Its an adequate, albeit it basic restaurant. I think it may have been open for dinner as 7 Glaciers was closed, so it had a minimal range for dinner. Staff super lovely
