A word from Snow City Cafe

We're a popular downtown breakfast and lunch spot where the staff is friendly, the food is tasty and breakfast is served all day. We use the freshest ingredients available and buy local whenever we can. Most everything we serve is made from scratch and 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.

Snow City Cafe reviews from OpenTable diners

    We didn't get to the table at our exact reservation time, but it definitely reduced the wait and guaranteed we'd get to have our meal at a decent time.

    The food at Snow City is always wonderful, which is why it is always so busy, particularly on the weekends. If you want to make sure your wait will be less than an hour, make a reservation. Even if you do have a reservation, don't be surprised if there's still a 15-30 minute wait. In any case, the wait is totally worth it. Once you are seated, the service is fast and friendly, the food comes quickly and is very tasty.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 1/1/2013
    Still my favorite place for breakfast in ANC. I have had pretty much every item on the menu and it is all very good. My fave is the Crabcakes Benedict mostly because I can't get it anywhere else. Always delicious.

  • Snow City has been a favorite
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 1/1/2013
    Snow City has been a favorite for years. The service is fast and friendly, though the kitchen can get a little backed up when very crowded. The food is consistently good, with interesting twists on old favorites. Great downtown spot for breakfast or lunch, with breakfast served all day. It has recently started doing vegan options as well, which I appreciate.

    There is no doubt why Snow City is voted best breakfast in Anchorage year after year. The food is outstanding, the service is wonderfule and the atmosphere is energetic and upbeat. We have been eating at this cafe for the past four years and are moving and we will greatly miss them.

    Had the egg sandwich and a half order of biscuits and gravy. The food was hot and perfectly cooked. The egg sandwich was very flavorful, but the biscuits and gravey were just okay. I really wanted to try more items off the menu, but i was full. Arrive early before 9 AM on Sunday and you should have no problem getting seated.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    The service was lacking for whatever reason. The gentleman server we had never bothered to come back to the table to offer more coffee or for any other reason other than to drop off the ticket. Perhaps it was because we were drinking decaf. My sense was that he was new or not used to that kind of work. I ordered toast, he didn't bring it. He charged me for it anyhow. But that is a first so I have no complaint, really. I'm obviously a little spoiled by consistent, past service. Not to sound chauvinistic, my observation is female servers exhibit better attention to detail than men. To be honest,I did raise four daughters. I like being able to make reservations over the internet! Thank you for that option. Fantastic sticky buns!!!

    As always, Snow City was excellent. The food is great, and the service excellent. The hard part is deciding what to order. I have several favorites: the omelets, the Polar Bear breakfast (pancakes, eggs, meat/protein), and the garden sandwich. The soups are always excellent. the cream of tomato, their daily soup, is wonderful! I recommend making reservations since they are usually busy. They do have coffee and mugs at the front door, so you can grab some while you are waiting. The cafe is bright and airy, and they display local artists' works on the walls.
