Delicious healthy food!

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... read 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

While staying at the Artic Adventure Hostel, an employee suggested Middle Way Cafe for a "good breakfast." I arrived early, around 7:30 am before the crowds on a Sunday morning. When I walked in this place, tucked in a strip mall near REI, I was hooked. The offerings were enticing. I ordered multigrain pancakes with bananas and blueberries, and a... More

We LOVE Middle Way Cafe! They have great gluten-free and vegan options, which is just awesome! They make fantastic pastries with rotating flavors each day. So good! Even though it can get pretty busy there, the staff is always super friendly.

Eclectic, often crowded, and a bit on the pricey side, Middle Way Cafe offers a wide variety of sandwiches, soup, salads, smoothies, and espresso drinks. The majority of the items are vegetarian/ vegan friendly, and all the food is extremely fresh and nutritious! Waiting for your order can sometimes take awhile, but if you come in at the right time...

While we love the food at Middle Way Cafe, we find the crowded jostling for tables and the long waits for food to be enough to keep us away. Happy to visit early in the morning for a delicious breakfast burrito and smoothies, or coffee, before the crowds arrive. Today we arrived shortly before noon and had to wait 15... More
