Snow City is hands down my favorite breakfast restaurant in Anchorage. From their stuffed French toast, to the tofu egg sandwich, and their eggs florentine. My son has a blast and loves the kids blueberry pancakes. The drinks are always on point and I have honestly never been disappointed with their service. Definitely a destination if you are traveling to... More

Ate here on Valentines Day. Food was great and fresh! The wait was a bit long and the restaurant was small for the seemingly high demand that day. Also understandable being a holiday though. Would recommend it to anyone who has the chance.

Snow City always, always delivers. You can get traditional breakfasts or something it's their signature twist, like the orange cream cheese filled French toast. Really extensive menu for breakfast. Good lunches too, but this is Anchorage's best breakfast place. Was even busy on a winter Monday morning.

Snow City is a breakfast/brunch specialty restaurant. They open at 7am and close at 3pm. If you are familiar with Snooze in Colorado, that is what Snow City is shooting for, waiting time included. Snow City just recently started taking reservations but even so, they are crazy popular so don't be surprised if there is a wait of at least... More

Omg, the BEST breakfast food in town! The crab cakes were to die for, and they always keep the coffee refilled!

Great food and location. Love to stop in on busy days and grab a protein shake. On not so busy days like to have lunch with friends. Convenient location if you want to go to the park, rent a bike in season, go shopping, see the sights.

This is a fun place with enticing favorites like eggs benedict and GREAT oatmeal with lots of toppings. BUT, very crowded, especially on weekends. I would recommend trying a few of the breakfast places on the main street downtown for less crowds. Maybe not THE places to go but good with no crowds.

As one of the few cool, hip places in Anchorage for eats be prepared as it fills up fast. Breakfast and lunch here are excellent. You can get as much or as little as your tummy demands. Their coffee is excellent as well as their service.

We went to breakfast here our last morning in Anchorage. We had made a reservation but still had to wait almost 15 minutes for our table. The coffee was great. Had an amazing cinnamon role and a great crab omelette! Understand why this place is so popular. Get reservations if you can!
