Must Stop For Breakfast

There is a reason there is often a line out the door - it is worth the wait. Great spot for a downtown Anchorage breakfast. The varieties of eggs benedict are a draw for us, but all the usual staples are strong performers. Also, has high quality and a nice variety of coffee and tea.

I went here in August 2014 and again this month, March 2015. I love the food here. I enjoy healthy healthy options for most of my meals, and a lot of places in alaska don't offer that, but snow city does and it's delicious. Their gluten free oat blueberry muffin is great, aswell as most omelets, reindeer sausage, granola, and... More

My wife ordered the stuffed French toast, which was 'to die for' and I had the corned beef hash. I have ordered corned beef hash in many restaurants. This was unique... it was all shredded. I really enjoyed it. Service was good and we hit the right time as we didn't have to wait more than a few minutes. Will... More

Open from early in the am till about 3 PM New to this restaurant is that you can now make reservations. Has lots of different types of egg Benedict....The salmon is good,,,However the Hollandaise sauce came out a bit skimpy and with a film over it like it had been sitting under a heat lamp for a bit...Lots of sides...

Expect a wait but it's definitely worth it. The food and service are awesome. Artwork from local artists is displayed on the walls. Try the Heart Attack on a Plate!

Very good portions. Simple cafe that takes reservations for breakfast. Excellent coffee. Good food. The restaurant is a little dated but I think that adds to its charm. Service was very good as well.

By far the best breakfast place in town. The staff, especially those working the checkin counter, can be discourteous at times, which is unfortunate. Many of the breakfast options are great, I have never been disappointed.

On our last wonderful trip to Alaska, we stopped in for breakfast at the Snow City Cafe in Anchorage on a tip from one of our tour guides. Couldn't have been a better tip! My husband and I recently began a new life style regarding our eating -- gluten free, nearly paleo diet and this eating experience fit the bill!... More

Wonderfully clean and friendly. A nice mix of locals and travelers. Great servic. Lines are long but they have coffee and baked goods while you wait. Highly recommend!
