Snow City Cafe is an excellent place for breakfast but go early or you will have a short wait to get a table. They open at 7 am and we got there about 7:15 and got a table right away. By 8 am, there was a short line outside. Even if you have to wait, the food is excellent and... More

If you are stopping by in Anchorage, you can't afford to miss the breakfast here. One of the best Eggs Benedict I've ever had. The places is rather popular so it can be busy.....best to arrive early! Coffees were quite good too.

Love going here when I'm in Anchorage around brunch. This place has the best breakfast in town hands down. Get the deadliest catch if you go, which is a combo of the Kodiak benedict and Ship Creek benedict (Crab and Salmon).

Based on the many reviews I read, I had high expectations of Snow City. I ordered the caprese panini and was underwhelmed. Although it was not bad, it was nothing remarkable.

Don't go anywhere else in downtown in Anchorage for good coffee and a super breakfast. Close to hotels, but just walk a block and you'll realize why you didn't eat in the hotel.

I travel a bunch for work and this place has one of the best breakfasts out there. I went with the French toast with eggs and bacon. Been here a few times and I make a point to come here for breakfast on my trips! Thanks

Very busy, went on a Sunday AM around 11 after a long walk on the Tony Knowles trail. Great place for a hearty breakfast, great people watching, convenient location. Omelettes, waffles, pancakes all look great.

The wait is worth it. The food is delicious. There is a reason for the line into the restaurant, because the food is great. Grab a coffee while you wait.
