Snow City Cafe is a great & popular place for a reason. They have tasty and creative breakfast offerings that they serve all day. The service is always friendly & great. Local offerings like reindeer sausage etc. Great veggie, gluten free and other special dishes too. This place is always jamming and it's understandable. The food is tasty, creative, affordable,...

The food is consistent and the service is pretty good, can't say it's my favorite spot in town to eat but you will probably not be disappointed.

Half the food here is fresh, and the other half prepackaged. It is expensive and (except for the coffee) overpriced. SCC sells T-shirts. The staff is friendly, quirky and uniquely individual.

Everything is fresh made (w/ much food that is locally acquired), and served with courtesy & efficiency by their... More

This restaurant is very crowded by 7:30am. It is very well patronized by locals and that has to do with the fact that the food here is excellent and will compete with any breakfast anywhere and probably at a better price. The service staff shows genuine Alaska hospitality. One in particular stood out, Jedidiah. You should check him out and... More

A bit crowded, but worth the wait. Really good breakfast or lunch. Good location in downtown Anchorage. Fast and friendly service, reasonable prices.

Open 7am to 3pm; weekends 7am to 4pm. Downtown Anchorage. During my 4-day stay in Anchorage, I happened upon Snow City Cafe while hunting for breakfast on Saturday morning (my B&B offered continental only, and not until 8!). It was so stupendously good, and inexpensive, and efficiently served (by smiling staff) that I returned for lunch; and breakfast and lunch... More

We read about the Snow City Cafe on Tripadvisor and thought we'd give it a try. We went on a Friday morning and they were very busy. The wait was 30 minutes for our table and 20 minutes for our breakfast. Their Nuevo Huevos was excellent! Brown rice, eggs, black beans, cheddar, corn salsa, guacamole on corn tortillas. It make...
