I have gone to the Great Harvest Bread Co. on many occasions. They have the best freshly made and baked bread anywhere! My favorites are the Cinnamon Swirl bread, the Cranberry Orange bread, and my most favorite, the White Chocolate Cherry. They don't over-bake the bread, so it is moist and soft, and it does not dry out immediately upon... More

Free sample when you walk in to help you make your decision. An amazing selection of fresh baked breads, cookies, and other baked goods. It doesn't get much better than this! We had the cinnamon bread, high fiber, and the whole wheat. All were excellent! It was perfect for making sandwiches on our travels! The cookies are huge and delicious.... More

I have traveled around the world and have eaten my fair share of bread, but the bread from Great Harvest is hands down one of the best tasting I have ever had. I think it is the fact that they mill their wheat berries daily into flour and only use top quality ingredients that gives them the advantage over other... More

They have wide variety and creative types of bread. The free sample they give away are good chunk not like the usual tiny pieces you have seen. Panini & beef & cheese is fresh and mouthful for hungry tummy in the morning. The only disadvantage is the place is crowd and the waiting can be long.

A trip into Anchorage, particularly when it takes us to mid-town, requires a stop at GHB for a couple of loaves of Apple-Cinnamon Chip bread - the round loaf. I had to get two for home and two for the kids. It's awesome for making french toast with - just awesome!

This is one of the best Great Harvest Bread Company's I've been to across the U.S. The sandwich bar is excellent, and of course, all the baked goods are too.

This is the best bread I have had in years. The sandwiches are fantastic. The staff is friendly and the restaurant has an airy, yet cozy and inviting atmosphere. I'll eat here again if I make it back to Anchorage.
