I don't really know why I keep going back to this bakery. I've heard that people think it is over-rated, but I disagree. I have never met anyone that liked this place even a little. The most that can be said for this place is that if you are looking for sugary food that is bigger than your head, you... More

Alpine Diner & Bakery is the Perfect location for Java and Gas when going to or coming from the Kenai. Gas station is separate from Alpine Diner & Bakery. However, both are located directly on HWY 1 south of Anchorage, north of Steward and Homer. Coffee is great! Shall return.

Through the window of the bakery as you walk by you can see their display case full of donuts, cookies, brownies, cinnamon rolls. The brownies and cinnamon rolls are the size of the take out box. The first time we went we each ordered a cinnamon roll. They offered to warm them up for us. They are melt in your... More

Not that great and the prices are sky high. $9 for a donut, peanut butter cookie and raspberry danish. Should have been half the price for the quality.

I think many long time Alaskans still come here to reminisce of the old bakery. It used to be criminal if you were headed south and didn't stop to grab one of the massive sized bear claws or fritters. The people running the show were amazing and a treasure to have in the state. From the old man who would... More

The donut was okay...I suppose. It certainly wasn't good enough to make up for the amazingly rude mouth breather behind the counter. I won't be going back unless it's for another cup of coffee to throw in her face.

Food is overpriced and not very good. Girl behind counter actually used obscenity towards my elderly mother...as an Alaskan that drives by frequently...I would never go there again...also the place is run down...gas station has donuts and cookies for cheaper.

This was awful. We stopped early in the morning on our way south and they sold us day old or 3 day old pastries that were way overpriced and stale. Don't bother stopping here. I will never go there again. Very disappointing.

We stopped here for donuts and coffee on our way back to Anchorage. The jelly filled donut was okay.... nothing spectacular but the girl working the counter was completely rude. I asked for a sleeve for our coffee and since the girl was really busy I grabbed one myself. She got really upset and continued to make LOUD rude comments... More
