The food is always great here! And, the staff provide great service and great fun! The only downside can be a long wait for a table, especially for breakfast on week-ends! Thanks

My wife, son, and I ate here this past weekend for the first time in over 5 years. We had to wait for approximately 15 minutes for a table, but the turnover was quick and it didn't seem like too long. My wife ordered a latte, which she said was very good, and I had one of their 16oz. smoothies,... More

Great selection and combo for Benedict! You can start your coffee while you wait (quite the waiting time) to be seated.... Lovely service!

We've been dining at this popular eatery for 15 years, and still find the Snow City Cafe to be our favorite place for breakfast in Alaska's largest city :)) Everything on the menu is super yummy & made with fresh ingredients... we always order one of the egg Benedict dishes (good variety of choices) and also the tofu scramble (very...

Consistent quality food and service. Extremely popular for brunch. Cannot stress enough to make online reservations or plan to wait upwards of an hour on weekend. Worth the wait! GF/Vegan friendly!

If you have a chance to go here, you have to try the eggs benedicts...They have many different kinds and they all were great. The espresso bar has a to go option and its very reasonable and good. The place is small so plan on a wait when you get there, but its totally worth it

This is most likely the most popular breakfast spot in Anchorage. Deservedly so. I had the crab omelette and it was delicious. It can be incredibly crowded especially on a weekend, but the bar is always available for walk ins. If you come here as a solo traveler you won't be waiting long. Friendly staff and good coffee as well.

Worth the walk from the Marriott .. this little gem has great Eggs Benny, served by numerous toque-cladden hipsters. Good food indeed, Coffee was decent, Atmosphere was nice, and my partner in crime thoroughly enjoyed the 'hot sauce bar' .. classic :)
