“Don't miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Arrived at 7:30 on a Sunday morning. Was seated in the last available table and after that there was a line for a table which seemed to average about 20 minutes at that point. By 8:15 ther was a line out the door with what I imagine was a 40 min. Plus wait.
Definitely worth any wait. Grad a cup of the self serve coffee and enjoy people watching.
We had the deadliest catch (shared between 2) and it was great. Hollandaise was the best I've ever had, light and flavorful and added just the right amount of richness to the eggs. Hash browns were crunchy on the out side and steamy on the inside.
Also had the breakfast pastry sampler. Was good with a muffin, blueberry coffee cake, another dark bread and best of all a sticky pecan bun. We could have stopped there and been satisfied with our coffee. If you don't want the whole sampler be sure to order a sticky bun. Big enough to share with 4 people if you are satisfied with a couple bites. Sharing with 2 gives you all you could want.
Service was good and very pleasant.

“Good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We ate breakfast at Snow City. Obviously, a lot of locals eat here due to the good food and service. Have to get there early in order to not have to wait for a table. They are very busy.

“Best Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Even my cheap sister thought the prices were good. Yes, they are crowded, but they do take reservations. The food was fantastic! Good coffee. For some reason our service took a long time, but they acknowledged it without us asking and adjusted the bill.

“Worth waiting for.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Had to wait 40 minutes for a seat but well worth it. Excellent breakfast and friendly staff. Shame they didn"t have more T-shirts on sale would have bought one!

“Good find!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

My husband and I needed to find a breakfast place within walking distance of our Anchorage hotel on an early Monday morning before boarding the bus for our Alaskan trip. We found Snow City Cafe on our smart phone rated at $$. We got there early enough so we were seated right away. The waitress came over as soon as we were seated, brought us juice and coffee, took our orders, and our food was served very quickly. The food was plentiful and delicious! A good hearty breakfast to get us started on our long day ahead. And the prices were very reasonable, considering there is nothing inexpensive about Alaska. Highly recommended for quality, quantity, service, and pricing.
