“The place for Breakfast ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

Read the reviews and it seemed like a no brainier choice. As usual, trip advisor fans were spot on! Opened at 7 and people were lined up to get in. Quickly got seated and served a terrific breakfast. My teen and preteen daughters loved the French toast and bacon and reindeer sausage. My wife loved the hash browns which were like my moms potato cakes. I devoured the apple chicken sausage and as much of the plate size pancakes as I could hold down. I'm 6'4 and active so filling me up is a trick that they mastered in about 30 minutes.
Servers were friendly. We're from the beaches in NC so not sure how long it will be before we pass through here again but, these guys should surely still be thriving and we'll be stopping in for seconds !

“Hippy deliciousness”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Great sandwiches. Mac and cheese was a lil bland, but good.

Fun for people watching :) Very friendly staff and servers. Lots of clutter, but otherwise clean.

Make a reservation! Long wait times.

“quaint local place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

we went on a Saturday morning, and apparently it is the SPOT for the locals. We waited almost an hour, but it was worth it! They have a coffee bar that you can get your coffee from while you wait. The food was fantastic and the service was great too!

“Quality Food, Atmosphere, and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Snow City is not to be missed while in Anchorage. The food, atmosphere, and service are all exceptional. The wait may be long but it's worth it or if you don't have time they do have an area available for quick service coffee, espresso, and fresh smoothies. Also sandwiches salads and some other snacks are pre prepared for a quick tale out option. Whatever you decide make sure you don't not miss this exceptional dining experience while in Anchorage.
