It's really, really busy on Sat morning and some folks linger in spite of others obviously waiting for a table. But the coffee was very good, as were all 4 breakfast meals. I would definitely return.

I love the coffee, it's K-Bay Caffe the best organic coffee roasted in Alaska. Perfect. Great baked goods although they are gluten free and pretty groovy... The food tries too hard and ends up bland gloppy and tasteless sometimes, but I'm sure it's really good for you! I still love to stop by for coffee and carrot cake. Great ambience... More

Wasn't expecting much for it's location in a strip mall, but this place seems great. First time here, only ordered two things, but they were both really good. Ordered a veggie wrap, Lebanese style (the wrap was lettuce), and a smoothie. Fantastic! The vibe inside was good, and the counter service very friendly.

Middle Way Cafe is one of the few restaurants here in Anchorage that offer Vegan, Vegetarian and free range entrees and desserts. I'm vegan and normally go with the barbecue burger which is the same as the Nature burger just with added barbecue sauce. You need to ask for the Veganaise otherwise a lot of the times it comes with... More

We timed our arrival at the Middle Way perfectly- just after the lunch rush. I ordered the soup and a salmon burger. No complaints! My husband was also satisfied with his meal- he really enjoyed the smoothie. Decent prices, free wifi, friendly atmosphere. REI is nearby so get your gear, then grab lunch!

The Middle Way Cafe has become a victim of their own popularity. The food's excellent, as is the coffee and deserts. But over the breakfast and lunch hour, you almost can't get through the door. The off times are okay, though.

Had very good food and priced decently considering it is AK. Similar to price at home in Santa Fe. Seemed to be the place to be seen with lots of local hip young and older folks eating and doing WIFI

Pumpkin Phailures I don't get to Alaska but every other year it seems and for the past several visits I've always enjoyed a stop at Middle Way. First for the food and second its proximity to other shops I enjoy in the area. On a lovely fall day recently I met a friend at MW. We staked out a table... More
