Great breakfast with rain deer sausage. Great people, great breakfast, well priced! A real local place. We will come back after a Denali trip.

We asked a local where to eat. He told us the White Spot Café in downtown Anchorage. It was the best hamburger we have ever had. Just a small café with great old time music and the staff was fantastic. Not fancy but really good.

The food was good and the service was great. Big portions of food. It reminded me of some places at home where the locals eat and have coffee.

A small local spot on w 4th and A streets. Terrific food staff was fantastic. Cook even strolled over with a question on how exactly I wanted my eggs. Busy spot but no wait. Prices average for area. $$$

If you visit the White Spot which has excellent breakfasts and hamburgers, be sure to tell Rachel hello and give her a good tip. She and her husband are spending the summer in Anchorage earning money for graduate school. This is a small town bar and grill a few blocks from the busy downtown. It is where the locals eat...

My wife and I loved this place. It is not the tourist trap a few blocks away. The Halibut was lightly breaded and crisp. Be aware, they close at 3:00 p.m. This place was recommended to us by the our guides on a Wilderness Gold Panning excursion up at the McKinley Princess Lodge.

Wonderful little spot for breakfast or lunch. Well known to locals. Was turned on to this place years ago by an Anchorage police detective, and have been eating here at least once every time we're in town ever since. All the food is good, but I have to order the halibut plate each time. Big meaty pieces of fish, fried... More

A local resident recommended this "hole in the wall" diner for the best halibut and he wasn't wrong. The fish was great, the portions were good and the local beer very tasty. Old school diner style with good hospitality.

We came to The White Spot Cafe based on reviews here and were not disappointed! The diner is small which made accommodating our party of six a tight squeeze but it was managed. The staff were friendly though a bit rushed as it was lunch time. My party got 4 Halibut sandwiches and 2 Specials, which happened to be the... More

Stopped in for lunch today with a coworker. Immediately saw the bacon jalapeño cheddar burger and ordered that. The grill cook was skilled and got everything lined up very quick. He immediately took three more orders and never got flustered. Next I saw him bring out the fresh cut fries, and got very excited. He plated up the burgers and... More
