We were advised to book breakfast and just got the last table at 0730 on a Sunday. Lines grew all the time we were there but I guess no one waited more than 30 minutes. If you like a mountainous breakfast washed down by great coffee this is the place for you. try the Polar Bear : fluffy blueberry pancake... More

Called and place a pick up order, my order was wrong. I called back and was treated very unprofessional, called again and was hung up on. I called a third time and spoke with Jessica the supervisor, she told me she would fix everything. She is Awesome! She personally delivered my order correctly. Not only that ,she packed a very...

Never had a bad meal at Snow City, plus the espresso is excellent. The only drawback is parking downtown. But Snow City is well worth it. Food is tasty, quick, and even relatively inexpensive. They have the best Eggs Benedict, I've ever had! Cozy, friendly atmosphere. Service is very good. I've been going there for at least 15 years. Great... More

We were in Anchorage for a work visit and stopped here our last morning. It was our second visit and like the first time was amazing. One of my coworkers had salmon cakes; said they were delicious. Another coworker had the crab omelette; again said it was delicious. I had scrambled eggs with sides. Service and portions are great. I... More

Definitely make a reservation before you go unless you are 1 person. They have stalls for single visitors which are first come first serve so you can sit when the person before you is finished. Their menu is great, lots to choose from. I tried one of the egg benedic and it was very tasty and satisfying. I will definitely... More

Generally long waits for a table so avoid the line and sit at the counter! We had Eggs Benedict - they were awesome! Highly recommend!

Top notch service, delicious breakfast menu and a very strong American diner ambiance. The place is very busy, even early in the morning, but I was lucky enough to get a table immediately. 10 out of 10, would stuff my face with giant buttermilk pancakes again! :)

This is a hugely popular restaurant - hence the hour's wait (worth putting name on list and going for a stroll) Very helpful staff and free refills

Make advance reservations for breakfast at Snow City and avoid the waits at this popular Anchorage spot. Possibly one of the best lattes I've ever had, a lovely (large) omelet and spicy "reindeer" sausage. After a tardy flight from Philadelphia that arrived in the wee morning hours, we left Snow City happy and well-fueled for our the first day in... More
