For $10 bucks you will get a filling, yummy breakfast to launch a day of adventure in Wrangell-St. Elias. Get there excellent breakfast burrito called the Potatohead.

OMG... this was good. seriously. We're from Texas so I'd like to think we're semi "experts" on breakfast burritos, and this place had some of the best burritos we've ever had. We went back two times it was that good and debated going a third, lol. The place is tiny, a food truck with a built on dining area, but... More

busy little place as there isn't any other place for breakfast/lunch. Continental breakfast is offered at lodge and packaged items along with $1 coffee at the general store

As advertised on Main Street McCarthy they serve good food at reasonable prices. (little bit of nostalgia with the Mr Potatoeheads inside)

Right on the edge of town (omg that's at least a 5 min walk to build up the appetite ! lol ). Had a hot and spicy (chilli) egg muffin for breakfast with a lovely coffee. It's quirky but then so is McCarthy and its good to spread the love between all the outlets in this metropolis so that they... More

I just had a chai, but I love this place. I watched other people eat breakfast burritos with great joy, I just wasn't sure I could handle that so early in the morning. The potato heads were hilarious, there was lots of fun stuff to read and just a lovely atmosphere. We were actually guided there by Blitz, the three... More

First off, McCarthy is one of the craziest, little towns I have ever been to. The Roadside Potatohead had the best coffee. Didn't have breakfast, even though I wanted to, it was a part of what made our trip special. Be sure to visit, they are a bit hidden right before you head into McCarthy on the right. They have...

This wonderful, small resataurant does a robust breakfast business and you will understand why when you see their creative menu which includes a wide variety of selections, including gluten free options! I recommend them highly!

A breakfast burrito, served in a former food truck, 1/2 mile from the end of the road, with the largest assortment of potato heads I have ever seen---and one of the best breakfast I had in Alaska. Not only is the coffee delicious, the other costumers are fun to visit with as you wait for your sandwich to be individually... More
