* 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 are elated to see that more eateries everywhere are also striving to do the same. Buying local helps to build the local economy and assures freshness in all that we prepare. We believe that the food we consume directly affects our health and the health of the plant. We strive to be a zero waste facility by composting all of our food scraps, recycling everything possible, and implement energy efficient appliances and practices into our establishment. We also believe that customer service makes all the difference in your experience while you dine. It is our honor and intention to serve our customers in a manner that is welcoming and enjoyable. We serve our popular breakfast items all day, hearty lunches, seasonal daily specials, to-go meals, box lunches, daily baked goodies including gluten free options, smoothies, espresso drinks, milkshakes & fresh juices all in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Our catering services are planned with attention to detail for any event. We feature the best Alaskan seafood, local beef, and plenty of Vegetarian & Vegan options using as much seasonal Homer grown produce as possible. There is no skimping on the value you receive when you are served a delicious, robust meal, teeming with regional flavor and quality, from one of our smiling servers. Please check out our menu on our website and find out more about how we started the Cafe with just $43 and a driving passion to make the world a better place one bite at a time. We truly look forward to serving you and value your feedback.We are open from May until October and our friendly staff will serve you from 6am - 4pm daily.

Great place for breakfast and lunch

This bakery / restaurant is one of of the best so far in our tour in Alaska. We had a spinach and cheese Burekas which were one of the best Burekas I had. We all should convince the owner of the place not to sale his business, like he wish, after many years of hard working. PLEASE STAY.

Has breakfast here Sunday. The food was terrific but the service was below subpar. The service was slow. They did not have enough staff; and the owner made no attempt to pick up the slack. It appeared that he was far more interested in being chummy with locals/friends then in assisting to speed things up for non-locals. He was also... More

We were a party of 5. I did not order pancakes but 3 of us did. They did not eat them as they did not like the taste. Maybe they were made with sourdough. Ask before you order. My breakfast was OK but it is hard to screw up eggs over easy. Live music during breakfast was nice.

Every summer we visit Homer for a couple days and the Fresh Sourdough Express remains our favorite place to eat breakfast or lunch. From the first bite (to the last), you can tell they use fresh and local ingredients. The employees and owners are so warm and welcoming.

Lovely place to come back to. We loved it last year and it stayed the same. Too bad that the owners are looking to sell it. I hope the buyer will keep the same high standard. We specially loved the filled pastry (burekas) and mostly the one with spinach and cheese. You can eat breakfast staff the whole day and... More

I stopped here on a whim. Best decision i made in Homer. They were slammed so it was a little slow, but everyone was nice, food was hot and fresh and they kept my coffee cup full. Also, reasonably priced. And their reindeer sausage was the best i had in Alaska.

We stopped for a few pastries on our way out of Homer. The business is appealing outside with seating and beautiful flowers. There was a family ahead of us in line and three staff behind the counter. After the man in front of us ordered and stepped aside, no one took our order. A man that appeared to be the... More

My boyfriend and I stopped here on our way to the airport and picked up a blueberry and a raspberry muffin as well as a cup of coffee. The coffee was delicious... Hot and fresh. The muffins were absolutely delicious. I only wish we had bought more on our way out of town. I will be dreaming about those muffins... More

Our group had an excellent breakfast at Sourdough. I had the scrambled eggs w/spinach and mushrooms. It was delicious. In fact, everything coming out of the kitchen looked amazing! The food is fresh, and the service is friendly and attentive.
