If you are a coffee snob, just go to the Ranting Raven Bakery. There might be other good coffee in Seward, but weak diner coffee seems t be the norm in this town but the Ranting Raven Bakery has good strong coffee.

This used to be a very good bakery, but they serve only one or two things now. In fact, I'm not sure if they even have coffee anymore???

This is now a gift shop that sells wrapped cookies on a small table in the back. This place is now miscategorized and should be changed to a gift shop. We went in for nosh and walked right out again.

You have died & gone to heaven...I send my friend a dozen from time to time, she s addicted to them, and who doesn't love them. Great cards, fine or fun jewelry, great local art, clothing that is very individual, you won't see yourself coming down the street in. Oh and don't forget..Ray Troll's incredible "must have" Alaskan t-shirts !... More

There used to be a large display case filled with yummy pasteries. Soups and sandwiches were available in the old days. Now there is a coffee pot and some cookies. Disappointing. Some seating is still available. The store portion of the business with cards, jewelry, and home decor items has taken over the establishment.

Like the last reviewer said, it has downsized. The kitchen and bakery we all loved so much is gone, but a carafe of coffee and those wonderful lemon cookies still remain. There are a lot more items added for those one of a kind pieces of Alaskan art. Clothing selection in the back, and of course Ravens! Still my favorite... More

The Bakery has downsized, but there's more, more, more of everything else. Jewelry has no calories, and the locally handpainted scarves are like jewelry, too! Shopping here is better than ever. I can always count on finding that special gift or something for myself.

My wife and I had breakfast there. Food and coffee was ok. The lady running the registrar was kind of rude. I would try Sea Beans across the street. Great coffee and breakfast with a good atmosphere.

A very eclectic gift shop with one of a kind Alaska art pieces....The bakery is delicious but limited in it's variety. Definitely worth stopping!
