Was told it was a 45 minute wait, patiently waiting while reading the drink board :). About 30 minutes in, we were seated. Two of us had the Smoked Salmon Cakes with eggs. It might have been the best thing I have ever eaten in Anchorage! Great portion, fun staff, love how bright the eating area is. There is so... More

I think this is maybe the busiest cafe we've ever visited. Fancy lining up for half an hour for breakfast - but we did - and plenty of other people were as well. And it was worth it.

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.

Went here for early breakfast to catch up with a friend during my short visit in Anchorage. I walked by and saw it was crowded so figured that's a good sign. I love the feature they have where you can pick out a mug and self-serve coffee while you wait to be seated...been to a lot of restaurants but that's... More

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.

Thank Karin W
