Sausage and French toast, balm for the weary. Also, a guy saw a fellow diner who'd done him a solid a long time ago. The guy walked over, picked up the bill and paid for for the family's breakfast. It was a sweet moment at...More

Good breakfast at Sam's and the staff is always very nice. We go pretty often on the weekend and we can get our breakfast pretty fast. One of the three best places to get breakfast in Fairbanks.
