We went back a second time but as it was their last day of the season they were very low on items. Wish they weren't so far away. The food was... read more

Stopped in for a quick breakfast and loved it. Breakfast sandwiches were great and how can you be in a bakery and not get some sweets. The smells are enticing. Lots of people coming in and picking up box lunches before heading out fishing. Very popular stop and the ladies running the shop greet everyone with a smile and a... More

We ordered our lunches the night before (be sure you do so) and they were ready for pickup first thing in the morning before the charters left. Guys liked them so much we ordered them a second time! Of course, when we picked up the lunches we also couldn't pass up some of the bakery items. Everything was delicious. Great... More

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.

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
