* 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.

With no breakfast options at our hotel, we were directed here, and are so happy we were! The 60's vibe throughout emanates from the owners who opened the place many years ago, starting with a truck which is still parked outside. We felt like the restaurant was an extension of their home kitchen, both in terms of how we were... More

On the road leading to the Homer Spit is an unpretentious café where you can have breakfast all day, a healthy lunch, or pick up bread and goodies for your picnic. The Fresh Sourdough Express Bakery & Café has friendly people, fine food, and fair prices.

The restaurant was packed because they had a NCL cruise group. The staff was extremely cheerful so we were ok with the wait. The food was well prepared and bountiful, would love to return.

Went here for coffee at the tail end of the 2014 season with many places in Homer closed. A delicious find!! Great coffee with refills; so many fabulous-looking pastries that it was hard to decide. Blueberry danish-ish roll that I had was great!! Bright and spacious. Kevin was so friendly!!

Locally sourced when possible, small but excellent menu, super friendly staff. Reasonably priced for the area and open past the end of season which was a find. Highly recommend!

My wife needs gluten and egg free options. We were happy we the food. The service was excellent. If you want a place that offers gluten free options you are limited. This is a good choice.
