On summer days, Snow City attracts some serious crowds—and for good reason. This modern but unassuming café, convenient to many of the downtown hotels, serves one of Anchorage's best (and reasonably priced) breakfasts. Service is fast in the chipper and family-friendly restaurant. The breakfast menu, served all day, features inventive spins on eggs Benedict, including one topped with king crab cakes; omelets; pancakes; and more. Snow City's lunch menu, also a good value,
consists of hot or cold sandwiches, fresh soups, and salads, and has lots of vegetarian and vegan options. Meat eaters need look no further than the excellent meatloaf sandwich. There's a refrigerator case filled with to-go sandwiches, making the meatloaf a perfect picnic or hiking companion. If you're not an early riser, or haven't made a reservation, be prepared to wait. Snow City now accepts reservations via phone and Web.
