When you have a company that regularly visits Anchorage, and when your team members taunt one another with photos of breakfast from the Middle Way as in "ha ha...I am eating their huevos rancheros and you are not!"...that says a lot. I would probably fly to Anchorage to eat here. But it's enough... read more

I've been to Anchorage many times, but this was my first visit to Middle Way Cafe. The Chicken Milano sandwich was one of the best sandwiches I have ever had. The bread was wonderful! The service was very fast, and the atmosphere was lively. The lunch was very enjoyable.

Great coffee from KBay Roasters in Homer. Tons of hearty options for carnivores, vegetarians, vegans, and gluten-free diners. Bottomless cups of that great coffee. Good brunch/lunch sandwich options. Did I mention the coffee was great? And the bakery had a lot of very tasty vegan and gluten-free options. Oh yeah, and the bottomless cups of coffee from KBay-roasted beans was... More

My favorite lunch/coffee/study spot. Large, delicious healthy salads for vegans or carnivores, fabulous sandwich options, and my favorite coffee artistry. Free wireless, revolving artwork by local artists, and always a crowd. It's worth the wait. Prices are reasonable, staff is friendly and the atmosphere is fun.

Ordered the tofu stack and superfood bowl for breakfast. Very delicious. Felt that the portions were a little less for the price. Nevertheless worth the visit

I am in love with this place. The menu has so many vegetarian options (vegan as well), and the ingredients are always fresh. I love their fresh juices, soups (coconut chipolte with black beans and sweet potato -- yum!), their salads and the many veggie burger options (coyote burger is my fav!). Breakfast options are wonderful also. The menu has... More

We had heard wonderful things about this healthy lunch spot in the REI strip mall in Anchorage. We ordered and paid for our drinks and meal at the counter, then proceeded to our corner table to wait for our food to be delivered. We waited…and waited…and waited. We watched others who had arrived well after we did receive their lunches.... More

Some of the best food and coffee (Kbay!) in town. I eat here every time I'm in Anchorage. I love the Jungle Love smoothie with orange instead of apple juice. The spicy chicken sandwich and avocado melt are TO DIE FOR. Hot sauces on every table, great blue chips, and fun people watching. Never had a bad meal here. Only... More

We took a gamble not knowing anything about this place. It was recommened on Yelp so we went to check it out. Very busy but it did not take long to get a table. The service was good and the food was great. Nice and fresh and cooked to the way we wanted. We had breakfast and were not disappointed.... More
