It gets very busy at lunchtime, but no wonder; fresh food and friendly service, who wouldn't appreciate that? Breakfast is slightly more relaxed, especially when we've just gotten a foot of snow over night. Still not deserted though! Eggs Benedict are good, the toast was delicious until I tried low carb diet-then it was just tempting. Last but not least,... More

The cashier was awesome and gave us suggestions on their best dishes. He was very personable and was asking how we were enjoying Anchorage and our day. They make you feel like your among friends.

My wife and l stopped for lunch each ordering a sandwich. I tried the spicy chicken...bland seasonings..stringy meat...and soggy toasted bread. Even the few corn chips tossed in on the side were stale. She had some kind of a tuna mixture on soggy toasted sourdough..again..bland is the kindest way to put it. The counter worker was personable. After that staff... More

They have THE best avocado melt in town. I also love their smoothies and salads. They also serve gluten-free pastries.

I've had the pleasure of eating at this fine, health conscious restaurant numerous times over the last several years, as I do business in Alaska and go there about four times a year. However, I typically will eat in this restaurant several times during my week long stay, because I like it that much! The only thing I do not... More

I am not sure how you can mess up huevos rancheros. I sat down and tried to work my way through the half order. It was like eating dry cardboard in hockey puck form. The rice was under-cooked and flavorless. I really do not know how this place is so busy and has such good ratings. I can only assume... More

I'm went to grab some soup and a smoothie at 3 pm on a weekday. There were several already in the line and once I ordered, I was a bit surprised how long it took. But the lentil soup and smoothie were both good. They have lots of healthy food options but it's not cheap and apparently you do have... More

Every time I visit Middleway I have to get a vegan cupcake even though I am not vegan.. they are amazing! I also LOVE their breakfasts and the ultimate avocado melt!! Around lunchtime there is a long wait and often on the weekends around breakfast and lunchtime! I wish they would open a second south-side location

I come here quite often. Food is always tasty, healthy and made with top notch ingredients. The smoothies and juices are what they are best known for, but so is their coffee when I'm having breakfast. It helps to know the menu and their methodology ahead of time since this is an order from counter style restaurant. There are paper... More

Have gone a few times when I stop in Anchorage. Luckily the staff is only at the counter, they are never very friendly....my mistake for not knowing the salsa was not included..sorry for asking questions. BUT fortunately the food is amazing. Just walking by and looking in the window at the food is what drew me in. The food is... More
