The 10 Best Omelets in Alaska! By
In Alaska, a hearty, filling breakfast is a must. What better way to fill up on veggies and protein than with a delicious omelet? Across the state, you’ll find plenty of places to get your breakfast stuffed together all into one egg-filled delight. Here are some of the best spots to get them in Alaska.
In Alaska’s first city, The Landing/Jeremiah’s Pub may be the first place you encounter that serves omelets—and you’ll be happy that you did. With four specialty omelets and a build-your-own option, you certainly can’t go wrong. But in Southeast Alaska, you kinda have to order the crab omelet.
Jackie’s Place has a lot (A LOT) of omelets on the menu. In addition to the menu’s standard selections or the build-your-own option, you can also choose from a menu of favorite local creation, like “Aaron’s Omelette,” made with turkey, reindeer, onion, bell pepper, tomato, mushrooms, and mozzarella.
After staying up late and closing down the Oasis Lounge at 2 a.m. (3:30 on weekends), you’ll need a hearty breakfast. In the morning, why not grab a cordon bleu omelet at… you guessed it, the Oasis. They only take a few hours off between bar close and breakfast bravado. Build your own or try another of their signatures, like the Oasis omelet.
Locals and visitors alike have been eating breakfast at the Chart Room at Land’s End Resort for more than half a century. It’s possible that the incredible waterfront location could distract you for a moment, but the hunger pangs will eventually set in and you’ll have to order the Land’s End omelet with crab and artichoke. In winter though, the Spanish omelet may give you that extra boost of warmth that you need.
The Victorian-era lounge at the Hotel Seward is called Ms. Gene’s Place and they serve up breakfast that keep locals, as well as tourists, coming back day in and day out. Their signature omelet is made with Dungeness crab and is topped with a scratch-made beurre blanc sauce. Too much crab? (In Alaska, it’s possible—but unlikely) Mark’s Omelet, with feta, spinach, and turkey sausage, is a delicious alternative.
They only serve breakfast on the weekends, but if you’re in the Nome area, the Seafood Omelet at Ping Bakery-Seafood House, with halibut and/or king crab, steamed rice, and vegetables, makes the wait worthwhile. A veggie omelet is also available. Or you can get a half-omelet and a waffle. Decisions, decisions…
Snow City Café is an award-winning breakfast and lunch spot that takes their omelets seriously. Either of its two options—the crabby omelet (snow crab, Swiss cheese, green onion, avocado) or the über omelet (ham, red onion, green pepper, tomato, mushroom, and Swiss cheese) is worth the trip. Our recommendation? Both.
Tucked onto street level of the Baranof Hotel, the Capital Café is a destination for both hotel guests and Capital City dwellers. You can build your own omelet from a robust selection of ingredients. But in Southeast Alaska, why wouldn’t you order the smoked salmon and goat cheese omelet?
Granny B’s Café is a tiny, kitschy, throwback diner—exactly the kind of place where you want to have breakfast. They’ve got half a dozen specialty omelets on the menu, but the one that consistently turns heads is the Mexican Omelet: It’s stuffed with homemade chili, cheddar cheese, jalapeños, and served with salsa. It’ll keep your core warm in the dark winter months.
Duncan House Diner has been one of the Kenai’s most popular breakfast spots for over a decade. Not only can you get an omelet all day long, you can build your own or choose from an octet of specialty options. You’re in Alaska, though. So reindeer sausage and cheese it will be!
