Dining and travel and lodging in Alaska is quite different than what you may be used to in the Lower 48. Prices tend to be much higher, hotels tend to be dingier, and dining options are very limited in most areas. The Totem Inn is refreshingly different. The breakfast food was very good.
I got eggs, a pancake, and reindeer sausage. The house coffee is pretty good - nothing special, but fresh and better than average. They serve black beans as a typical side, which you might not be accustomed to, but it's a personal favorite of mine - for proten, fiber, and taste. You can get potatoes instead if you prefer. There's hot sauce on the table -try it on the beans.
They had a crab on poached egg and English muffin wth Hollandaise sauce on the menu that sounded good. About $15 for that.
I did't have breakfast anywhere else in Valdez, but I suspect this is THE place to go in town for breakfast. They serve pretty later, or maybe all day - not sure. There is a really nice gift shop there too, in case you have to wait. It was pretty busy for Sunday brunch-time, but it was well worth the short wait. The price was very reasonable, about $12 for a really big breakfast.
