We had read about the long waits to get in, but we wanted to go for breakfast at 9 on a Monday. Surely we wouldn't need reservations, right? But their website had a place to make reservations so we did. I'm so glad! There was a wait when we arrived and even when we left at 10. But we got... More

While in anchorage for a one nights stay, we happened upon this quaint little eatery. We were there for breakfast . There was a wait but it was well worth it. We all had specialty coffees while we waited that were delicious! Breakfast was amazing! Staff was excellent!

We were told when we checked in that it would be a 45 minute wait. We did not get seated until 60 minutes, but we still thought it was okay. Then the real wait began! We ordered and did not get our food for 1 hour and 30 minutes. We were just getting ready to get up and leave when... More

Got there when they was just about to open and there was already a line outside. I had little time to spare before my bus left for the train station. I was seated fast and served a very good breakfast in record time great food and service

The Snow City Cafe is a great place for breakfast/brunch. I do suggest showing up early, as there will be a wait.

Met a group of fellow travelers here for lunch. Seating was casual. The service was excellent. Food was excellent. Waitress was efficient and happily split our checks. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant.

If you can get in during a less busy time, go for it! The breakfast is good, but definitely not worth waiting a couple of hours for. There are plenty of places in town that have just as good of food for much less wait.
