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. The featured lots of great choices including chorizo hash which was awesome, a vegetable terrine which... More

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.

I like to eat breakfast at the POND café when I stay at the hotel or am out there early to berry pick or hike. They have a pretty restaurant with great service and really good breakfast food. it's also fun to meet fellow skiers there for breakfast. They can accommodate groups.

We had breakfast at this American-style café on our last day staying at Alyeska Resort. It is slightly upscale, but still comfortable.  I had the salmon omelette, while Bob had oatmeal with nuts and berries.  Both were quite good.  There was a very nice,  but a little pricey,  buffet with a chef-manned egg station.  The large window offered great views of...
