Delicious breakfast and coffee at Snow City Cafe. Staff was so kind and the art was fun to look at. A perfect start to our day with local eats such as reindeer sausage and king crab.

The crabby omelette with crispy bacon and sourdough toast is number one in my book. You should try it. If you don’t like it, call me and I’ll come eat the rest of yours. 😍😍😍

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!
