We stopped here for a quick breakfast before our tour bus left Anchorage. Don't let the surroundings dissuade you from trying breakfast. The muffins are made on site by the owner and they are light, flavorful and delicious. There are other options for breakfast and lunch. We had yogurt and granola that was hearty and plentiful. Vegetarian options are available.

I always find it interesting when you have reviews so polarized from each other. My niece and I stopped by for breakfast, We were given a verbal hello from the cook working behind counter within a minute or so of our entrance. Service overall was good portions were good and price fair for Alaska.

The portion sizes were large but I had hair in my food not once but twice. If it was just one strand I wouldn't even be bothered but this was a lot of hairs... enough to turn me off forever. Do not recommend, food was not clean and neither was the restrooms

Having little time before leaving Anchorage we saw the Muffin Man Café right across the parking lot and made for it. Good food, coffee at a fair price, service was a little confusing. after ordering get your on flatware, water, salt and pepper too. All these items are at the side bar will additional condiments.

This is actually a very good choice downtown if you want to grab a yummy sandwich for lunch. Service is at the counter and quick, prices are fair, and it's mostly a local crowd.

I am a frequent visitor to Anchorage and switch between muffin man and snow city for breakfast. It seems lately when I drop by to muffin man its not open. It's a shame because their food is/was very good, from oatmeal to homemade granola and killer breakfast sandwiches. Haven't been able to enjoy a breakfast there now in almost a... More

Been here in summer and had great muffins for breakfast. While attending Iditarod was heading for the place. Sign on door. "11ish to 3". The busiest week in Anchorage and it doesn't suit them to be open. When returned after 11, was informed the don't make muffins during the winter. Poor menu otherwise. The attitude there seems to be, we... More
