Friendly, clean and good food. I had the Uber omelet, hash browns and rye toast. The hash browns were gooey in the middle - in a good way. It was very good, I’d have it again.

They have great food. It’s first come first serve. They don’t take reservations. Get there early, it’s worth the wait.

I always liked eating breakfast at Snow City; the food is made with love I think. But when they wooed President Obama into their cafe, they rose to the place of stardom in my book. Good, home-style cooking and a friendly serving staff make this...More

I highly recommend this place for breakfast or lunch. The food was excellent. And the service was great. You might have to wait to get a table but it is worth it.

Don't take my word for it - all the surveys confirm what I discovered on my first visit - a total YUM! Low key hippie vibe - with outstanding breakfast choices. I had a half order of the snow crab omelet and a 1/2 order...More

If you're staying at the Clarion Suites downtown on Eighth Avenue, it's only about half a mile away. Enjoy!

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.

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.

Sunny side up since 1998!

We're a popular downtown brunch spot where the staff is friendly, the food is tasty, and breakfast is served all day.

Our mission is to use the freshest ingredients available and buy from local vendors whenever we can. Most everything we serve is made from scratch, and with 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. Substitutions are welcome.

Come check us out, and see why Anchorage locals have voted us "Best Breakfast" in the Anchorage Press since 2003!
