I went to meet a friend for breakfast here and so glad she chose this location; it was delicious! I got a pancake plate and the Alaska Chai tea....oh my gosh it was fantastic! I am a huge chai tea drinker and this tea hit the spot! I'll even venture to say it's much better than just regular vanilla chai!!... More

My first trip to Alaska was 2011, I've come back 3-4 times a year for work and play. Snow city has the best breakfast and lunch and service. Tons of variety

Quaint little place with a variety of food on the menu. There's a different soup each day of the week - I had the beef stew which was delicious. Very hearty and thick - perfect choice for a brisk autumn day. Staff was helpful, friendly and fun.

I know this has been said, but this is an excellent place to eat. The decor is fun and funky, and the staff are well trained, friendly and efficient. I had the Uber omelette and toast, it was fabulous!

I went after reading the previous reviews and was not disappointed at all. This is a busy bright place with very friendly and efficient staff. The crazy omelet was excellent and you can't go wrong with the Benedict --- any if them.

The breakfast served here is some of the best I have ever tasted. I had the stuffed French toast and it was so delicious and different than I expected. The atmosphere was quirky and inviting. It was a great experience.
