This was another great Trip Advisor led foray that took me to a restaurant I would have otherwise never knew existed in a spot I probably would have never wandered by. I was in Anchorage for a short time for business and was in the mood for eggs benedict. OK, so what do you do if that happens? Check out... More

Almost always a wait to get in. Very Seattle like in atmosphere. Good to call ahead. Families with little ones would be fine here. Staff is great and pretty fast. All ages hang here, but this place really draws the 20-30 year old crowds. Coffee is outstanding. All food is good quality (real) food. Eggs Benedicts are delicious and their... More

My sister and niece enjoyed eating here twice last week. The first time was for lunch about 12:30; the second time was for brunch about 10 AM. We didn't have to wait either time for a table and were seated immediately. Both servers were prompt and courteous. Being from out of town, I asked their recommendations on their favorites items...

Snow City feels like a local hang out with a welcoming atmosphere and staff. The staff are very helpful. I liked my food so well the first time, that I returned for a 2nd breakfast. The first time I had an excellent smoked salmon & swiss quiche accompanied by chicken and reindeer sausage gumbo. Both were very good and served... More

My only problem with coming here is deciding what to order. I narrowed it down to three things before ultimately deciding on the "deadliest catch" benedict, which is a benedict with both a salmon and crab cake (one on each). The egg was perfectly poached, and both seafood cakes would have stood on their own.

My wife and I enjoyed brunch at the Snow City Cafe in Anchorage this morning. The place is very popular so we had to wait 20 minutes for a table but it was more than worth the wait. We enjoyed delicious salmon and king crab Benedict and fresh, invigorating smoothies. We highly recommend this place!

Don't be put off by the wait for a table at Snow City Cafe; there's a good reason people are willing to wait for a table, and the wait isn't usually too long. This is a bustling cafe that serves breakfast (all day) and lunch dishes, many with an Alaskan twist. A wide selection of full meals and sides means... More

First off ~ if you plan on visiting for breakfast or during peak hours you NEED to do the reservations online!!! If you don't - don't plan on walking in and being seated within less than hour or so. I love all the food options, vegan, meat, country southern, anything!!! It's worth trying if your visiting and not a far... More

If you have the chance to eat here... Breakfast would be the best time! A very busy local joint but we'll worth the wait.

My best advice to you is to make a reservation. Snow City now takes reservations. We went there on Friday morning just before 11 a.m. and the place was packed with people waiting to be seated. We waited about 20 minutes or more. When we finished our meal at 1 p.m., there was no crowd. It is extremely popular, especially... More
