Stopped here for breakfast as it is conveniently located to the hotel I was staying at next door. I ordered the 5 cheese omelette with the Yukon Gold Potatoes with coffee and whole wheat toast. It was a very delicious breakfast. Large portions and good service. Price wise it set me back around 17 dollars but food is expensive in... More

I decided to give the restaurant a second chance after the first visit was lacking in friendliness. Not sure how to explain the attitude, for I eat out quite often all over the States. The food in itself is wonderfully delicious. No complaints about the cook. First day my mother and I were hurried to order. It was busy enough... More

Sandpiper is the best breakfast in town, with a good variety of meal options - a local favorite! Every dish I've tried has been excellent and there is an extensive list of specials each day.

I've only eaten breakfast here and I'm not sure if they serve lunch or not. If they do, I'd have lunch here as well. I've had breakfast here around 6 times when I'm in town and never had a bad meal.

The Sandpiper is a distinctive cafe in downtown Juneau that serves great breakfasts and lunches in BIG Alaska-style portions. A favorite of locals.

We love to go to the Sandpiper for breakfast. The food is amazing! It is always good and they have wonderful specials. I have never been disappointed with all the creative dishes I've had there (the breakfast burrito is my fav)! The space is small and if you get there a little later in the morning prepare to wait a... More

We ordered the salmon eggs bennedict - it was the best I have ever had - the salmon was amazing. Service was good, and efficient, and the cafe clean and welcoming. If I lived in Juneau I would be lining up for this breakfast every week!

All the breakfasts we've had here have been excellent but sometimes there service is slow. I only go here when I have time and I don't need to rush.

This is at least my third visit over a period of a year and still providing a great breakfast with outstanding service. Had the a tasty perfectly cooked waffle griddle combo. ONLY "complaint" 2 eggs ordered over easy, were more on the over hard side. Will definitely be back!

Hard to find great customer service nowadays. From the seating to the waitress can't beat the smile and service they provided. The coffee was delicious and the waffle was on point.
