Very good breakfast buffet

We had breakfast at the Pond Cafe and it was very good. The service was good and friendly, you can order from the menu or have the buffet. We chose the buffet, they have made to order omlettes, eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes, pancakes, oatmeal and fresh fruit to name a few. The server will bring... read more

We ordered breakfast from the menu rather than doing the buffet and our service was average at best. We were asked to move from our original seating location to accommodate a larger party though they could have used the other 2 tables near us without us having to move. The food was good but a little pricey for what we... More

We were not staying at the resort, we were in Girdwood for a helicopter tour but had thought to spend the late morning and lunch at the Alyeska Resort. Lunch at the top of the mountain sounded good but not with the extra $25 each for the tram so we tried the Pond Cafe. Nice setting, beautiful views. Gracious seating... More

My mother and I came here for breakfast during our visit to the hotel. The service was top notch and food was good. There is a menu and an all you can eat buffet. The buffet had a great selection including a made to order omelet station. The coffee is quite excellent as well and had a nice choice of... More

If you are staying at the Alyeska hotel your breakfast options are limited. The menu looks inviting but the actual plate leaves you wondering where they hide the crab and the hollandaise sauce, Go for the $20 buffet for the standard breakfast fare. We were there around 9 am on a summer Sunday - they fill your coffee cup if... More

We had a great meal along with a great server. Also while we were the a moose and her baby visited the pond. Needless to say the place emptied out to watch the moose then back to an enjoyable supper with alot to talk about.

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
