Went with friends for breakfast. Had the "Deadliest Catch" eggs benedict sampler, one with crab cake, one with smoked salmon cake. OUTSTANDING! One of the best breakfasts I've had in a long time! Well done!

Lively, fun, busy place - big cafe with great food, a favorite with locals and tourists. Local artists exhibited on walls, changes regularly. The stuffed french toast is awesome and the portions are big and satisfying - the best hash browns I have had in years - crunchy on the outside, soft/chewy perfect on the inside and NOT GREASY.

Good and plentiful food. Many choices from omelets to French toast to salads and more. Hint: call first thing in morning and get a reservation. Those who don't May have am hour wait on a busy day. Had the crabby omelet- fresh crab, avocado and Swiss cheese. Very satisfying. Other parties had the breakfast burrito and had tons of food... More

Crowded during breakfast rush but a buzzer calls you quickly. Meanwhile, grab a real mug and choose a variety of coffee to sip while you wait. Raspberry butter for pancakes was a delightful surprise. Reindeer sausage reminded me of kielbasa!

We ate there twice for breakfast while waiting to start Princess cruise tour. Fabulous. We got there early enough to avoid crowds. Lots and lots of locals, which is always a good sign (many meetings going on there). Get the Deadliest Catch for salmon and crab eggs Benedict. So Alaska. No issues with service or prices. We were going to... More

This place was a great classic diner. Was very busy, but we only had to wait about 15 minutes. The food was really good and staff all very nice!

Based on recommendation from the Anchorage Visitors Center, went here for lunch and had the deadliest catch - absolute seafood perfection (salmon patty and crab cake) blended with eggs benedict. A lot of food but I couldn't stop myself from cleaning the plate. Friendly staff with funky vibe and not overly touristy. Yum! one of the food highlights of our... More

Best breakfast ever!!! We started with a Pecan Sticky Bun as an appetizer, yes for breakfast, and the went with Deadliest Catch (Eggs Benedict with salmon and crab) that came with hash browns and a side of apple chicken sausage. Simply amazing! My wife had the oatmeal with granola and assorted toppings and couldn't finish it. We originally scoffed at... More

Make reservations! This is a crazy popular place and as soon as you get in you will know why. The vibe and the food are really great. We three hungry fellas went in for a lunch and it was packed - a 1.5 hour wait, so we went elsewhere (Muse Restaurant at the Anchorage museum ****) We made 7:30 am... More
