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!

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."

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.

My son and I spent four days in Homer for the Kachemak Bay Shorebird Festival. We ate breakfast here each of the days. We tried the breakfast burritos, biscuits and gravy and the reindeer sausage kolache along with their cinnamon rolls. All were excellent. They sell out the delicious kolaches so get there early!

Everything is sinfully delicious! Order their box lunches if you are going fishing or bear viewing, they are wonderful! When you pick up that box lunch, save time to enjoy their homemade biscuits & gravy! They are the only hearty way to start your day!

Stopped for coffee and a cinnamon roll on our way out of town. I had the raspberry cinnamon roll and my husband had the regular one. They are very large and VERY good. Service was great. They have a couple of small tables that you can eat at, but the place is very small so I would plan to grab... More

It doesn't take long to figure out that living requires more work in Alaska. We camped for 2 rainy nights in Denali, and Boardwalk was a a very welcome respite in the mornings. The food was good, the coffee and tea were good, and the opportunity to hang out inside for a bit was great! Nice folks, fun eavesdropping.

We are so glad that we could provide a little shelter and good food for you on your Alaska trip. Camping in a tent in Alaska is fun, but dining at Boardwalk Bakery is fun too, without the outside elements. And you never know what you might see or hear!!! Thank you for your nice review. More

Call your order in before 7 the night before your fishing charter and you can pick it up before you hit the boat! This was the only place I wanted breakfast - the paninis were delicious and it was perfect to sit on my balcony in the hotel with my panini and watch the whales!
