We also stopped here on our way to Denali on a very wet day and had lovely muffins and good hot coffee that wasn't tar.A wide range of gold and other souvenirs that didn't all come from China.

We stopped there on our way from Denali to RCCL in Seward. Our bus operator told us about the history of Mary's. Very interesting and delicious baked goods. Also has a nice gift shop.
