I ate breakfast at the Pond Cafe all three mornings of my stay at the Alyeska. The food was good, and I enjoyed the biscuits and gravy, pancakes, and eggs Benedict. The breakfast potatoes were the only disappointment, being filled and covered with onions. The...More

Best place for breakfast. The buffet is great! Make/create your own omelets! Linda is a great waitress. Everyone is nice and friendly. Great view of the mountain! Eat outside if the weather is good.

During my stay I had breakfast at the Pond Cafe. They offer menu selections as well as a buffet. I had the pancakes which were very good. Huge portions. Service was friendly and attentive. Nice relaxing location with views.

This is a restaurant in the Alyeska resort. We had breakfast in this restaurant twice and it was sufficient. We ordered off of the menu, as the buffet was simply too expensive for what was included.

Excellent Sunday morning buffet with many options. The omelette station was a highlight. Drinks are included in the buffet price so well worth the $20. Plentiful staff to keep things moving

We generally eat breakfast here when passing through Girdwood. Good food, but you are going to pay resort prices for it. Love their fried potatoes. Portions are not huge, but adequate.
