After eating at Snow City twice now I can say without a doubt you won't find a better breakfast in Downtown. Yes there is a wait, however go to the website and reserve a table, this will take some of the pain out. They have fresh coffee with grab your own mug to drink while waiting and tables outside to...

Arriving hungry from an early morning flight to Anchorage we were delighted to find this cafe just a few blocks from our hotel (The Captain Cook). Having looked at TA reviews beforehand I was not surprised by the numbers waiting well before 10 am. It was about 20 minutes before a table for 2 was free (it seemed to me... More

Only ate breakfast there, twice, both times quite yummy. Coffee strong, staff very friendly. The Alaskan version of Chilaquiles was my favorite.

We went to Alaska on our honeymoon and actually wound up eating at Snow City a total of three times. Their breakfasts are excellent (reindeer sausage, anyone?) and they have some really great drinks for people like me who take some coffee with their sugar. :) The artwork was really fun and atmosphere is great. Their hash browns are cooked... More

I went here for breakfast and told them I only had 30 minutes. I was seated & ordered breakfast and juice & coffee to go. 30 minutes later I walked out having had a juice & the coffee but no breakfast as they still had not served it. Very disappointing!

My wife and I went in June on a very rainy morning. No lines to wait because of the weather. Now I can see why there are long lines to get in on most days. I took forever for a waitress to wait on us after being seated and took at least a half hour to get our breakfast. Like... More
