  1. BTW, Cliff wants to know if you need a dishwasher! It looks like an inviting place to work and then eat any left-overs, or at least be the sampler! 😉

  2. I’m soooooo looking forward to visiting Nome again, just to try the culinary fare at Pingo! I’m so excited that you’re finally opening! Break a leg!

  3. My husband, son, sister-in-law, father-in-law and myself all stopped in for breakfast today. We decided to have the seafood omelet, which was absolutely amazing! The filling was literally bursting out of the omelet! We will definitely be returning. What a great place to have in Nome! We have also tried the fresh baked bread and cookies and were very happy with those as well! Kudos to Chef Erica!

  4. I don’t get to Nome from the village very often, but when I do, I make it a point to stop and dine. DELICIOUS croissants (I didn’t even know I liked croissants until I had her’s!) and A-Mazing pastries. The ham and cheese-filled croissant is one of the most delicious filled-sandwiches I’ve ever had. (HONEST!)

  5. During the 2012 Birding field trips I led in Nome region I was able to use the Pingo four time for two different groups. It is a wonderful resturant. We will use the establishment begining May 31 2013. Rich Cimino

  6. Pingo Bakery Seafood has the best food EVER! My favorite is Erica’s seafood omelet, her assortment of cookies…and her chocolate croissants!! Pingo’s is a cozy professional establishment, with ‘out of this world’ food! It’s so neat that remote ol’ Nome can have such a great place to eat.
    Erica the chef/owner is just absolutely WONDERFUL…as is her gourmet food!

  7. I am heading up there tomorrow for the first time ever, and I already told my husband I want to eat there, your food looks amazing! 🙂

  8. my husband & I stopped in for lunch. pulled pork sandwich with French onion soup–fabulous! the bread was amazing, the pork super tasty & that French onion soup was perfect. we grabbed pastries to go, even those were delicious!

  9. I’m really looking forward to my first Pingo eating experience! I’ve eaten Chef Erica’s delicious cooking before but never at her new establishment, Pingo. Fingers crossed I can make it up there in 2014! Congratulations on the expanded days/hours!

  10. I was visiting Nome last week with my parents. We heard from the locals that Pingo’s had great food. We were not disappointed and returned a couple times during our short trip. Halibut pizza is amazing! The omlette is delicious and very filling. All the pastries were a huge hit with everyone in the family. We took a bunch of cookies back to the hotel with us (a couple times).

  11. My mom and I visited Nome in April of this year, while she was working at the hospital there. We ate at Pingo’s 3 out of our 4 days there, and everything was delicious. I also enjoyed talking to the owner and her assistant as well.

  12. I finally made it to visit my dear friend, Pingo’s own Chef Erica, and sample some of her culinary wonders in Nome this past week. I had several of her meals and am still full and satisfied! Pingo’s menu is varied and fantastic, with some uniquely delicious items. There’s personal service in a friendly and cozy atmosphere. Who could ask for anything more? I will be back!!

  13. I know Pingo bakery from Alaska SME website, I will visit your restaurant at 8th July this year. A 24 hours fly from Indonesia to Nome Alaska as a respect to Nome spirit

  14. You were a lifesaver during my stopover in Nome! Thank you for the food before a long trip where food was going to be scarce!

    I appreciate good food (often, my itineraries are designed around restaurants) and I was almost disappointed when I thought I would miss out on trying your restaurant. I was so glad I had the opportunity to have your crab soup and sandwich, which were delicious! I can’t wait to visit again!!!
