Great food, even though pricey. Salmon cakes for brunch and great coffee. Daughter had chili spiced hot chocolate to die for. I enjoyed writing on the chalkboard with other children.

Loved the salmon and crab cake eggs benedict. Service was good too. Blueberry pancakes were also tasty.

This is a diner style establishment. The food was decent, but there were few options on where to eat. We ordered an omelette with tomato, mushroom, chicken apple sausage & 2 eggs with sausage and hash browns & 2 coffees. Our bill was $33.

Amazing place for a quick bite or a casual afternoon. Weather you’re after the all day breakfast menu, soups or sandwiches, the food is amazing. Service is quick and staff super friendly. Always buzzing!

Great omelettes and coffee. Place was packed and service was definitely not outstanding. We took salads for take-out lunch and they were also delicious! If you're not in a hurry, you should go there!

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!
