Best bakery in Homer

Love the cinnamon roles. The woman who runs it is friendly and always smiling, even at 5:00 AM when they open. She offers boxed lunches for people heading out to fish and the food is very good. She also serves coffee and hot chocolate as well as a variety of bakery items.

After reading all these amazing reviews, I figured I had to try this place. So yummy! I can't tell you the last time I even had a cinnamon roll but this was amazing. The owner will heat the cinnamon roll for you- do it. You can work it off walking along The Spit afterwards.

The cake balls are amazing, I absolutely love them! In fact, everything at this bakery is amazing, haven't had anything I haven't liked yet. Breakfast burritos, raspberry cinnamon rolls, giant cookies... Yum!

Great bakery that was busy early with outbound Halibut fishermen getting their morning vittles and a good box lunch for later. We got the morning specials and some excellent coffee. There were empty seats so we sat enjoyed our breakfast and the parade of customers in their different fishing attire. An excellent place to enjoy the morning.

Thank you for your very nice review of our little bakery. It is a hopping place early in the morning. We meet so many nice people and enjoy sending them off to slay fish with good food in their bellies and in their lunch sacks. Thank you for visiting and come back soon. More

This place is great!! One of the only early morning eateries in Homer, which is good because most tours and fishing boats seem to leave before 8am. They have delicious biscuits/bisucuit sandwiches that we enjoyed both mornings of our stay in Homer. Definitely recommend.

We were disappointed with our boxed lunches. The sandwiches came on ciabatta bread and there was too much bread and too little meat and toppings. We would have liked a choice of breads. The slaw had big and small pieces of cabbage- not evenly chopped.

Wow! We are so sorry that you were disappointed. As you can read by the other reviews, you are in the minority. First of all, as to bread choices. The bread that we serve is homemade focaccia and not ciabatta. So, a choice probably wouldn't have done you much good since you don't seem to be familiar with breads. We... More
