I am not sure how you can mess up huevos rancheros. I sat down and tried to work my way through the half order. It was like eating dry cardboard in hockey puck form. The rice was under-cooked and flavorless. I really do not know how this place is so busy and has such good ratings. I can only assume... More

I'm went to grab some soup and a smoothie at 3 pm on a weekday. There were several already in the line and once I ordered, I was a bit surprised how long it took. But the lentil soup and smoothie were both good. They have lots of healthy food options but it's not cheap and apparently you do have... More

Every time I visit Middleway I have to get a vegan cupcake even though I am not vegan.. they are amazing! I also LOVE their breakfasts and the ultimate avocado melt!! Around lunchtime there is a long wait and often on the weekends around breakfast and lunchtime! I wish they would open a second south-side location

I come here quite often. Food is always tasty, healthy and made with top notch ingredients. The smoothies and juices are what they are best known for, but so is their coffee when I'm having breakfast. It helps to know the menu and their methodology ahead of time since this is an order from counter style restaurant. There are paper... More

Have gone a few times when I stop in Anchorage. Luckily the staff is only at the counter, they are never very friendly....my mistake for not knowing the salsa was not included..sorry for asking questions. BUT fortunately the food is amazing. Just walking by and looking in the window at the food is what drew me in. The food is... More

This has always been my mom's favorite place to get lunch for years since it's healthy... We always order the spicy chicken sandwich with the tortilla chips and for .75 cents extra their homemade salsa!! SOOOOO good, and satisfying. Their service is good also, and the place is always clean. I recommend if you want a healthy lunch w/ a... More

Near REI and Alaska club, Middle Way has great healthy food, decent coffee, an interesting menu, nice bakery, long waits on weekend mornings and worth it. Great place to meet the folks you haven't seen for awhile. People are friendly and often share the crowded tables. Kids welcome. Local artworks on display.

I've had slow service here on multiple occasions, even when ordering already prepared food from the refrigerated case at the counter. Reheating food should not take this long.

Went in for a late breakfast, and just missed it (they serve breakfast until 11am). Got the Turkey Cranberry Sandwich (GF bread) on the recommendation of the bubbly cashier behind the counter and was satisfied! I'm a small guy with a huge appetite and GF, so it is hard for me to find something to eat when I go out... More

I had lunch plans with a friend of mine who is a vegetarian. We were going to another restaurant for lunch but they were closed. My friend loves eating here so we met here instead. I haven't eaten here since about this time last year. We walked in and the guy behind the counter mentioned they just redid the menu... More
