Nicely prepared breakfast buffet and if you want to eat healthy you certainly can do it here. They have the typical selections which are freshly prepared and tasty, but also things like quinoa, and oatmeal along with yogurt, fruit and other tasty morsels.

The Pond Cafe has a nice breakfast buffet and a wonderful omelette station to get freshly made omelettes. We especially enjoyed the reindeer sausage and fresh French pastries.

We ate here our first breakfast at the Alyeska resort. There is a buffet, but it did not look that exciting, so we ordered off the menu. The omelet was good, the waffle was very good. Prices are typical of a hotel.
