* Healthy Hearty Alaskan Cuisine focusing on Local and Organic ingredients since 1982* The original owners are back and 2014 will be the best year ever with some new menu items and a fresh juice bar. At the Fresh Sourdough Express, we offer food that is both good for you and the planet. Since 1982 we have strived to serve as much organic and local food as possible.

We feature the best Alaskan seafood, local beef, and plenty of Vegetarian & Vegan options using as much seasonal Homer grown produce as possible.

Stopped in after seeing lots of cars there when driving by. Great choice! Yummy bakery items and delicious, hearty breakfasts. Did not try any other meals, but will in the future.

A great cup of coffee and killer spinach and cheese croissant to go. The young man at the counter was a student here for the summer from Utah and a real joy. He was very proud of the offerings at the restaurant.

Neat little place. My husband throughly enjoyed the sourdough french toast. I had sourdough pancakes but they were way overcooked, almost burned :( I would give them another try but specify lightly browned pancakes.
