THE breakfast spot in ANC

Awesome breakfast spot with excellent service and delicious food. Both times I've been here our order has come out very quickly, coffee is always kept full and hot. The reindeer sausage is a must try.

We went there for breakfast one morning. It was cold and drizzling rain but so worth it. The coffee was great as was everything we tried on the menu. Generous portions and fresh ingredients. There were many locals there as well as travelers. The wait was 35 min. We passed several other places on our way there that had very... More

This time we decided to make reservations not to wait in long line. Didn't work. We still waited for almost 30 min for our table. This place is extremely popular and the food is great, but they need to do something about the long lines and long wait. At least for people with reservations.

Get there early or better yet use the online reservation tool on their website. The food is fantastic and the service has always been great. Don't forget to get your cup of coffee or espresso / latte style drink with your breakfast or while you wait to be seated.

This place can get very busy because it is so good, but be patient. I have never been disappointed! The wait staff has always been attentive and kind, and the food is delicious! Reminds me of Julia's in Seattle. Those of you from Alaska will know what I am talking about!

Drove in from Wasilla for breakfast one weekend morning after reading we could make reservations. So sorry it took us this long to try it! Wait was short, friendly people even after a long wait for our food. The bacon tasted deep fried that my friends didn't care for, except that we all loved it and can't wait to go... More

I generally attempt Snow City on weekday mornings when I don't have to hit my desk right away, to avoid the long waits with my family that can occur at the weekend. Although (contrary to other reviews) I think Snow City does take reservations. I have not made one myself but seen people come in and get tables with reservations.... More

nice coffee drinks and breakfast. the wait is long, especially on the weekends, but it's worth it. while you wait, you can walk around to other shops in Anchorage, or you can grab a coffee mug and help yourself to coffee and/or water from the beverage stand near the entrance. you can also order at the coffee counter if you...

Constantly outstanding food and service. Creative menus and always flexible when I can't make up my mind between two great dishes and gives me 1/2 and 1/2

went there for a business breakfast and wasn't to thrilled to see the back walls filled with pictures of men kissing men and women doing the same....don't support it and won't ever go back.
