Sandpiper is the best breakfast in town, with a good variety of meal options - a local favorite! Every dish I've tried has been excellent and there is an extensive list of specials each day.

I've only eaten breakfast here and I'm not sure if they serve lunch or not. If they do, I'd have lunch here as well. I've had breakfast here around 6 times when I'm in town and never had a bad meal. The food is very tasty and fresh. The staff are always very friendly and helpful. The place has a... More

The Sandpiper is a distinctive cafe in downtown Juneau that serves great breakfasts and lunches in BIG Alaska-style portions. A favorite of locals.

We love to go to the Sandpiper for breakfast. The food is amazing! It is always good and they have wonderful specials. I have never been disappointed with all the creative dishes I've had there (the breakfast burrito is my fav)! The space is small and if you get there a little later in the morning prepare to wait a... More

We ordered the salmon eggs bennedict - it was the best I have ever had - the salmon was amazing. Service was good, and efficient, and the cafe clean and welcoming. If I lived in Juneau I would be lining up for this breakfast every week!

All the breakfasts we've had here have been excellent but sometimes there service is slow. I only go here when I have time and I don't need to rush.

This is at least my third visit over a period of a year and still providing a great breakfast with outstanding service. Had the a tasty perfectly cooked waffle griddle combo. ONLY "complaint" 2 eggs ordered over easy, were more on the over hard side. Will definitely be back!

Hard to find great customer service nowadays. From the seating to the waitress can't beat the smile and service they provided. The coffee was delicious and the waffle was on point.

I had heard from various people the Sandpiper was an amazing breakfast place & I LOVE my eggs benny! .. It was a total letdown .. The meal was slapped together, no love put in the cooking of the meal. Mushy potatoes, English Muffin soggy, hollandaise sauce thick and rubbery with no flavour. I never complain, I'm a positive happy... More
