This place was just average. Service was o.k. I had to ask for a second cup of coffee because the one waitress was busy doing dishes. No automatic dishwasher. Food was pricey for what you got. Don't make a special trip to eat here. I don't think I would go back.

Yes it is a small place but usually these greasy spoons are! Sat at a comfy booth. Pancakes were fluffy and delish. French toast a bit bland. Cook takes your order. You actually shout it to him from wherever you are sitting. If you want a fancy place don't go here. It was good, but a bit overpriced for the... More

Good food, somewhat friendly staff, but... small portions, zero atmosphere, and way overpriced - even for AK standards. Two of us had the halibut - extremely tiny portion, the third of us had the 'fish n chips' - slightly larger portion of cod but not worth $16... and that was the 'special'

I was there for lunch and had the Halibut Plate. The fish was cooked to perfection, the fries are hand-cut fresh, & the cole slaw is delicious. If you sit on a stool at the counter you can watch your food being prepared. This is a very small, no-frills diner in downtown Anchorage. The Halibut Platter, while expensive (like all... More

Service was good and fast. Food ok. Average $18.00 per person. It was good for people wanted to have a quick lunch or dinner.

The Snow City Cafe may be hipper and a tiny bit more conveniently located but is it really worth waiting over an hour for when you can walk into the White Spot Cafe and get an excellent breakfast or lunch for less money? Almost certainly not. Plus, the corned beef hash is made on-site and is very good. No espresso... More

Had he biscuits. Very tasty. This is a quaint little restaurant...small in size...kind of a hole in the wall no frills place. But I would go again. Remember to take cash - no credit cards accepted! Friendly service.

We love The White Spot. The halibut is fresh, flaky and oh so delicious. The French fries are real hand cut fries and they are so good. We went out of our way to eat here after our cruise. It's a diner atmosphere but you feel like friends when you eat here. They are generous portions and the drinks are... More

We've driven by The White Spot Cafe many times, but we've never managed to stop while they're open. Today we stopped in for lunch, and I can say that we'll be back again soon! The menu is small and so is the restaurant, but don't let that fool you. The items they do offer is excellent. We watched our food... More
