We are taught from a very young age that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. The restaurants that are serving this early day grub also some of the most delicious. Moose a’la mode downtown on 4th and K was purchased by the owners of Tiki Pete’s food cart. The items that made that mobile destination a hot spot have found their way onto the menu at the Moose, but they also offer a delicious breakfast menu that should be looked into. You could even grab a salad or sandwich for lunch, a cup of coffee, and some gourmet cupcakes for when you need a sweet treat. A one stop shop when you have to work downtown is a great advantage when you have to spend all day in an office.

Moose A’La Mode owners Brandi and Marty Rathbun have long been involved in the local art and music scene in several ways but are probably best known for their food trucks Tiki Pete’s, which is a staple during outdoor concert season. They are excited to present an art show that has a rock vibe and are quickly becoming rock stars of their own right within the downtown comfort food scene. Moose A’La Mode has a varied menu with offerings like sandwiches, salads, espresso drinks, and of course their most famous Tiki Pete’s hot dogs. They are also becoming known for their sweeter offerings such as cupcakes and ice cream.

“I think there’s this impending doom feeling that everybody’s feeling right now,” said Brandi Rathbun, owner of downtown café Moose A’la Mode. “At least my friends that are business owners, we’re waiting for the next shutdown.”

Moose A'la Mode owner Brandi Rathbun at her business in Anchorage on Nov. 18, 2020. ’We want to keep our customers safe, ’ she said. She and her husband, Marty, decided to close indoor seating due to the dramatic increase of COVID-19 cases in Anchorage. They are offering curbside pickup, call-in orders, DoorDash, Grubhub and have recently added Uber Eats.
