how can an average donut be worth $3.00?

I stopped in because this used to be my favorite. Not anymore, it wasn't terrible it just wasn't very good. Not much selection, not impressive donuts, unfriendly staff

My apple fritter had no apple. I called and they offered a refund but it's on the highway and who wants to delay their trip just for $4?

The baked goods were mediocre and the owner not very friendly, although the sales staff were good. I was disappointed.

they never have return business so they just don't care that their pastries have no flavor like sweetened paper. Locals never go there and the poor people trapped on the tour buses have no real choice

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
