We were just driving around Homer looking for a place to have breakfast and found this place at the "spit". My husband and I, as well as my children (12 and 14 year old) loved the paninis, they were delicious. The owners are two very nice ladies. The place is small, there are just two tables to have breakfast, but... More

Call Boardwalk and order. Our bagged lunches were enjoyed on a busy fishing boat later in the day but everything was fresh and delicious. Nice job!

Great little bakery owned by a transplanted Texas lady. Offerings are exceptional, and portions large. Can get busy early with outbound Halibut fisherman around 5:30. If you have time sit and eat a pastry, and enjoy a great cup of coffee with two great lady's

If you are going fishing, or just hitting the road, this is a great place to have breakfast and pick up a box lunch. They open at 5:30 and take orders in advance. (Ordering ahead may is the only way to be sure to get a kolache. They sell out early.)

This is a good place to have a breakfast burrito or kolache, or to pick up a sandwich for lunch on the water. I was disappointed that they didn't have a better selection of pastries - cinnamon rolls are about all I can remember seeing in the pastry case. Basically, I would call it fine, but not special.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are sorry that you did not find the selection to be large enough for you. But you obviously missed the 15 other baked delights that we have other than the 2 types of cinnamon rolls. You may have noticed that our shop is very small and that there are... More

Two sisters from Moore, Oklahoma, Jackie and Kathy, own the best bakery on Homer Spit. From the reindeer sausage kolache rolls to gigantic cinnamon rolls to mouthwatering eclairs to excellent cookies [especially the little ginger snaps that help with seasickness], prepared to your order if you like. Lunch boxes for fishing or traveling, made to order. Served with a smile,... More

We arrived just after 5am, they were putting the flag out front. Food and Coffee are both excellent here. I had the breakfast burrito and a cherry cinnimon roll which took care of me well into the afternoon. Charming little shop on the boardwalk along the Homer spit.
