The ladies working there were nice enough but the food prices were high. We ordered 2 breakfast burritos because we read other reviews saying they were good. The burritos were hot and fresh but nothing to write home about. I recommend going to La Baleine located 1 block past the Salty Dawg on the Spit for an outstanding delicious breakfast.... More

Thank you for taking time to write a review. I am glad that most people do not share your view of our wonderful little "everything made from scratch" bakery. Most of our breakfast burrito loving customers come back day after day for their breakfast. It certainly wasn't very friendly of you to tout another restaurant in your review of us.... More

I think we may have suffered from the time of day we arrived... at least I hope that is the case. There wasn't much left and little variety. The eclairs were tasty but nothing overly special. The cinnamon buns were actually a bit on the stale side. Maybe next time.

It would help to know what time you came to our quaint little bakery. We open at 5am. So, if you are looking for our entire selection, you must arrive early. We like to be sold out right about closing time. I can promise that whatever you had was made fresh that day. If you were dissatisfied with anything, I... More

Lemon. That's what I'm looking for. Lemon. I ordered the lemon bar, and found it to be lacking. The texture was fine. The level of sweetness was fine. The Lemon was missing. The lemon bar did not taste of lemon. As for the service...the best that could be said is "swift, and as polite as need be."

Wow! I am a bit shocked.....and so sorry that you had only an average experience here. Our lemon squares are so popular and most people tell us they are the lemoniest they have ever had.

The best Bakery in Alaska! The Lemon bars & Strawberry cup cakes are to die for! All of their goodies are made from scratch and Wonderfull. Clean & very friendly. This is the place to go for your "fishing" Box Lunches. Delicious & filling. Easy to find, just google them!

We have eaten at a lot of bakeries on our travels, and the food at the Boardwalk Bakery blew everything else out of the water. It is clear that they take their baking seriously. The cinnamon rolls were the best we've had and the sandwiches were great (good ingredients). We're going to return for breakfast tomorrow.
