Now that summer is over, we are taking time to reflect on some of the cool things that happened these last few months.
Summer activities in Alaska are all about getting the most out of the outdoors:
fishing, camping, and hiking, and eating outdoors. However, the pandemic put some hitches in our Alaskan summer, including our dining experiences. COVID-19 has changed many things, but Alaskans are known for their resiliency and ingenuity, even before experiencing a global pandemic. And, as Alaskans, we have found ways to adapt, while still enjoying our summer dining staples, like having pizza at Moose’s Tooth and Bear Tooth.Read More >

Anchorage locals have voted Snow City Cafe, as "Best Breakfast" in the Anchorage Press since 2003! And we may be a little biased, we also think they have chosen the "Best Point of Sale" for their restaurant and kitchen operations -MobileBytes!
With all the breakfast and lunch menu options offered, they opted to use the large iPad Pros as their workstations and also for their Kitchen Display screens. The look is sleek and clean - and as one employee noted - we can see our customers better now! And we know how important that is to the folks at Snow City, as they care about good food, their community, the environment, and making people happy. Check them (and MobileBytes) out next time you are downtown!
And we are excited to welcome Club Paris as our newest member of our MobileBytes family. While they still use their trusty NCR register on the bar for a cash drawer, the rest of their point of sale operations are controlled by the MobileBytes Point of Sale system. They love the simplicity and ease of use of this system - plus they can manage the system from anywhere - even on their phones!
Jesse Dison, our senior installer, helped them implement the system, making the transition an easy one. He made sure everything went smoothly and even enjoyed their Halibut Filet. (Yes, they also have great fish on the menu).
The next time you are downtown, stop in and enjoy one of their famous steak (or fish!) dishes, and experience the history and tradition of Anchorage.Read More >
Wow - what a great company slogan- Zudy's Café - Cake with a View!
Whether you are in the mood for a salad, sandwich or seasonal soup, this Seward waterfront café will amaze you. And don't forget the cakes and pies that are made in-house to go with some Alaskan brewed coffee.
Judy made a home for her café at the old historic Alaska Railroad terminal building near the Alaska SeaLife Center. Dining on the patio is like looking at a picture-perfect postcard, with the glorious views of Resurrection Bay.
We asked Judy how she came up with Zudy’s Café, and the story makes her place even more special. She shares a very close relationship with her sister, who lives in New York. When they were children, Judy’s sister couldn’t say Judy very well, and it came out Zudy. Since then, the name stuck with her and she chose to name her café after her nickname.
With MobileBytes, Judy can view reports and make menu item changes right on her phone or iPad. Staff training was a "piece of cake" with this easy to use system.Read More >
