Description: * 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.

I was searching tripadvisor to see if this restaurant was still open. We come to Homer every summer and will be there again in a couple of weeks. We always look forward to several trips to Sourdough Express. In our opinion, they have the best coffee in Homer and all the pastries and meals are fresh, hot and delicious. Can't... More

We stopped in because their site says gluten free friendly... Wow are they! Just about every item on the menu had a sweet GF alternative including pancakes and French toast! But the best part was that gluten free was a side note to the super fast service, friendly atmosphere, and overall quality of the food. My wife and I both... More

Stopped in with a large tour group. Very friendly staff. Nice menu selection for breakfast. A little limited as a bakery. Nice cozy little spot worth a visit.

Me & my wife stopped in for breakfast and it was awesome. I was here 4 years ago & it was just ok. Now it was excellent. The French toast was incredible. As was the coffee & service. See y'all next year.

Everything here is as fresh and organic as possible. And it is good too. The reindeer scramble was awesome. It was the first time I had reindeer (I know...don't think about Santa). But it was really good. Definitely recommend this place.

How can you not love fresh local organic produce? This place is amazing - great food, great service - I love that they focus not just on delicious food, fresh juice, killer milkshakes and to die for bakery goodies, but they support local growers and are committed to being earth friendly. I love the veggies!! (and the sticky buns!)
