I stumbled upon Snow City Cafe when I was walking around downtown and looking for coffee to take on my Seward Hwy roadtrip. The place was PACKED on a Monday morning, so I knew it had to be good. I loved the eccentricity of the atmosphere and was able to step right up to the counter to make my to-go... More

Great food, wide-range and unique menu items (crab cakes Benedict), excellent service. Worth the wait & the price. We had Sunday brunch, then back Monday for breakfast. Amazing hash browns - crispy outsides!

I go to this place frequently and they consistently have great food and a great atmosphere. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Everything on their menu is good, and their homemade jam is the best I've ever had. I would highly recommend this place.

Everybody recommended this place and they were not wrong. The place was packed and had an hour wait for breakfast at 11 am! Luckily I was able to grab a seat at the counter. Service was amazing, coffee was perfect and breakfast was to die for. We all went back this morning at 7 to avoid the crowd and it... More

Breakfast was very good- the hashbrowns were cooked perfectly! Crusty brown on the outside with deliciousness inside- I had the deadliest catch which was good but I think jusdt hashbrowns and gravy would have made me happy.

I had this plate of food. I think it was heart attack on a plate. It had hash browns, egg, cheese, more cheese, mushrooms, salsa, meat, bacon and some other things. It's the best thing I've ever eaten for breakfast in my life and I'm 58.

Had a sandwich there and it was good but not great. I noted many were eating breakfast goodies which this place is known for as well as their impressive smoothies. Service was also good and timely. Ate around 1 pm lunch on a Thursday and no table was available so we sat on stools. Okay but not great for visiting.... More

They have a nice menu and good variety of food items, but you can't make reservations and the wait can be up to an hour- for breakfast! Suggest you eat outside the normal time if you want to walk right in.

Flight attendants on Alaska Air told us to go there if we could. We went on a Saturday morning, line out the door. But it was well worth the wait. They have coffee and mugs inside the door that you can fill and refill while you wait. The food was wonderful. We had 4 in our party and all got... More
