Sophia's Cafe Anchorage
The Mediterranean Sea is a long way from the Bering Strait, and it took a lot more than a land bridge to import the flavors from one to the other. But that’s exactly what the owners of Sophia’s Café have managed to do with their menu of Mediterranean-style breakfast treats and cleverly named sandwiches. They dress up their Spartan sandwich—a salami and cheese affair—with sun-dried tomatoes worthy of any Greek dish, and the Odyssey pita fills its pocket with scrambled eggs, feta, and tzatziki sauce. The restaurant features a sit-down dining room with tall rectangular windows and colorful centerpieces placed atop each of the tables, as well as a drive-thru perfect for eating in your car or astride your camel.
