Best chia tea latte ever! Plus yummy breakfast

Seems there is almost always a wait at this restaurant but it was definitely worth it. We got lucky and got seats at the counter, which is first come first serve. We had omelet with reindeer sausage and eggs Benedict with crab. The crab cakes were fresh and yummy. The best was my chia tea latte... read more

Went here for breakfast.first morning in Anchorage. The food was great, Tom, our waiter kept our coffee mugs full. My husband had the eggs and reindeer sausage and I had the french toast. one cute feature of this restaurant was that they had no "official" dinnerware. All the plates and mugs were different, looked like someone done alot of yard... More

We are breakfast at Snow City Cafe; there is a reservation and hostess line, the food is that good! Right downtown, opens early for the workers and tourist. Excellent service and food. I would dine there again.

We had lunch here, based on the recommendation of a local, and another tourist. We knew we would have to wait to get in, but the wait was less than 10 minutes. I had the half roasted turkey breast sandwich, which was fabulous. But the best was the fruit smoothie. We tried two of them, and they were so great.... More

They love to tailor to your likings: I love crispy bacon and crispy hash browns, and they are always willing to work with specific requests. One of the best Benedicts in town! Also, the jam is the best I've ever had in a restaurant.

The helpings are huge, quality of food wonderful - just don't be in a hurry! They are full and get you seated when they can - however you can enjoy a good cup of coffee outside while you wait! Everything is made from scratch and to order, so again, don't be in a hurry - but it's worth the wait!!!

Snow City Café consistently serves high quality food for breakfast and lunch. If you have a larger group you are wanting to take there over the lunch hour, make a reservation. Otherwise expect a wait. The entire menu is also available for take out which you can order ahead by phone.

We have had breakfast at Snow City Cafe several times in the last year. Once seated, the service is great and the food is excellent! I was disappointed to find out that I couldn't make reservations, but recently found out that Snow City does offer a "call ahead" list which makes the wait much shorter - simply call when you...
