3 Middle Way Cafe & Coffee House
Vegans, vegetarians, and those just looking for a healthful lunch will appreciate the fare at this small café. You need to place and pickup your own order at the stand-up bar, but well-polished walnut tables provide seating while you eat. Organic granola and a tofu scramble are available for breakfast, while a typical lunch is falafel with tomatoes and cucumbers or a Greek wrap with feta. A juice bar serves smoothies and more than 30 varieties of tea. (907-272-6433)
2 Gwennie's Old Alaskan Restaurant
Want to experience Alaskan dining, local style? Try Gwennie's for huge portions and friendly regulars that will explain the memorabilia on the wall and wax nostalgic about the day President Carter and his wife dined among them. Gwennie's is open all day, serving crab omelets with reindeer sausage for breakfast, fried halibut sandwiches for lunch, and barbecued salmon for dinner. Gwennie's also serves what is, perhaps, the best Bloody Mary in all of Anchorage. (907-243-2090)
1 Dianne's Restaurant
This lunch spot is most popular with Anchorage's young professionals, thanks in part to its location in a downtown high-rise. Quiches, soups, and salads are made fresh each day, but the hearty sandwiches are the real temptation. Try the veggie pita with cucumber dressing or the roast beef with creamy horseradish dressing. Another favorite is the turkey sandwich topped with cranberry sauce. (907-279-7243)
