Nicely prepared breakfast buffet and if you want to eat healthy you certainly can do it here. They have the typical selections which are freshly prepared and tasty, but also things like quinoa, and oatmeal along with yogurt, fruit and other tasty morsels.

The Pond Cafe has a nice breakfast buffet and a wonderful omelette station to get freshly made omelettes. We especially enjoyed the reindeer sausage and fresh French pastries.

Awesome breakfast buffet. Highlight was the omelet chef which has great ingredients that you choose yourself including reindeer sausage. Then you give it to the chef and tell him how many eggs and other special requests. The buffet was $20 including coffee and juice.

A very nice place for breakfast. The buffet is very good and good value. Service was very good, if in a hurry tell them you have a tour to catch and they will work with you. But I would try and schedule so you have enough time to not rush through breakfast. The breakfast burrito is huge. Portions are solid.

We were staying at the resort and needed a breakfast option. This was it. Pricey comes to mind. The buffet had lots of options but much of the cooked food was dry and needed replacing. The servers seemed unhappy on the day we were there, not very outgoing or helpful. Wish there was a different option available there.

Breakfast at the Pond was a nice buffet. All the expected fare with reindeer sausage and eggs made to order. Tasty and adequate with juice and coffee included. My biggest problem was with the servers, as it was at the other restaurant at the Hotel Alyeska as well. No one seemed to know just how much the buffet cost. One... More

Breakfast options include a buffet with many choices as well as a menu. Excellent coffee and a view that can't be beat.

We ate here our first breakfast at the Alyeska resort. There is a buffet, but it did not look that exciting, so we ordered off the menu. The omelet was good, the waffle was very good. Prices are typical of a hotel.
