If you had asked me where is my home away from home, I would reply: "Snow City Cafe!" When I find myself in the big city of Anchorage, I can always find myself around kind people at the Snow City Cafe. It is my center....More

Always love coming here, best breakfast in town (especially the hash browns.) Get here early, summertime seating is hard to find after 8:30am.

This is the first breakfast meal that I've ever reviewed, but the quality of the food deserves a mention. While not the least expensive place in town, the seafood breakfast was second to none. The service was quick and efficient and the food was excellent....More

I had the crabby omelet and a cup of coffee. The total was about $20 so it's a little pricey for an omelet but it was delicious! There was a good amount of crab and it tasted so fresh. A healthy portion of hash browns...More

Snow City is one of the great breakfast places in Anchorage. The variety is what keeps me coming back, they have more than five items to choose from. Food is consistent, eggs are poached correctly for Bennies and Hollandaise is not too thick. Great monthly...More

The location downtown is really great for business or pleasure. Parking on the street is difficult. But, the food is always fresh, creative, and delicious. Very casual atmosphere.

If you're staying at the Clarion Suites downtown on Eighth Avenue, it's only about half a mile away. Enjoy!
Hello how long are the lines on a Saturday morning at opening? (August) We would like to enjoy breakfast prior to our Alaskan Railroad trip to Whittier but are concerned of the wait times. We need to be at the station no later than 8:45am. Also we will have 1 carry on and 1 backpack each, will this be a problem? I posted to Snow City Cafe FB page but didn't get an answer so hoping you fellow travelers can help... Thank you in advance, Patty

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.
How is the parking availability?

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.
