I give a lot of four star reviews, but very few fives. I need something beyond expectations, something really out of the ordinary, for a five. We had lunch at the Red Chair and liked the place. We were a little jet-lagged from a long morning chasing time zones, and this place was very near our hotel. The atmosphere is pleasant, some local art on the walls, friendly staff, a full espresso bar. A nice start.

But here’s the thing - I had the Lizzie Sandwich. It was a wonderful mix of prosciutto, salami, caramelized onions and brie. It was special. Really a great sandwich. I don’t remember what my wife had.

Pros: Unique breakfast choices, cute atmosphere, very good lattes, great staff.

Cons: The wait on a Sunday for 4 persons was extremely long. 3 of the 4 of us had delicious meals. My dish unfortunately had a piece of long dark hair cooked into it. They were apologetic and removed from bill but it made me not want to eat anymore.

I would go back and try it again.

We stopped for breakfast with family and had an excellent meal. The French toast is 2" thick. The gravy and biscuits was very good. We will stop here again. Very popular with the locals.

We stopped in for breakfast. Good, basic food and quick, friendly service. This place has been here a long time, small and older but good food.

This is my new favorite place for breakfast in Anchorage, and I'm a big fan of Snow City and South. It's a little farther from the typical downtown establishments but they have some free designated parking places across the street to the East. They serve breakfast until they close, which is why we had breakfast for lunch. The decor is steampunk-eques but not dark.
