The food is great! I recommend the stuffed French toast or the yogurt parfait. They have a wide variety of benedicts. Come early because this place is packed in the summer!

We had breakfast and lunch here and will be back. Great Benedict. Good kids French toast. Don’t get the kids Mac and cheese if your kid isn’t into stinky cheeses though. Excellent lattes and sandwiches too.

The menu includes a variety of fresh, inventive specials and recurring items. The bakery choices are terrific in the restaurant or to go. Service is always prompt, friendly & professional. As your server about the “Salsa Bar” to add even more flavor to soups, omelets...More

My husband and I had breakfast here while visiting Anchorage. YUM!!! We both had omelets which were amazing. Great service and decent prices too. There was a little bit of a wait but it seemed like they were prepared for that and kept things moving....More

If the tongue were an erogenous zone Snow City Cafe would be the ultimate sex shop. Five stars is not enough. We’d like to give them eight stars. The food was sublime. The flavors are exquisite. Condiments are an unmandatory option. Take your first bite...More

Known for it's breakfast and well worth the wait. Very interesting menu for breakfast and all four of us felt the dishes were excellent. Was sorry I could only go once on trip.

You will have to wait, sometime for quite a while, if you don’t reserve a table online a day ahead of time. The food is tasty and the service is provided with a smile! We like taking family and friends here on the weekends!

If you're staying at the Clarion Suites downtown on Eighth Avenue, it's only about half a mile away. Enjoy!

Would suggest you arrive as early as possible - just so you can enjoy the experience and refills! Also, the lines will be at their shortest.

We went in late Alaska around 10 a.m. No problem parking on the street and, since we made reservations the day before, just a few minutes wait.

Sunny side up since 1998!

We're a popular downtown brunch spot where the staff is friendly, the food is tasty, and breakfast is served all day.

Our mission is to use the freshest ingredients available and buy from local vendors whenever we can. Most everything we serve is made from scratch, and with plenty of love. We care about good food, our community, the environment, and making people happy.

We offer a variety of vegan & gluten-free options, as well as a range of healthy choices, such as egg whites, fat-free cooking spray, or a side of fruit instead of hash browns. Substitutions are welcome.

Come check us out, and see why Anchorage locals have voted us "Best Breakfast" in the Anchorage Press since 2003!
