Description: A touch of gourmet in the homemade. Serving Alaska's best breakfast for every visitor in Girdwood, Alaska, we offer delicious, cozy homemade breakfasts. Sit down and let the smell of fresh baked bread, bacon and steaming coffee fill your nose as you pour golden maple syrup over a stack of hot sourdough pancakes. Try one of our famous sweet rolls or take home a loaf of our homemade Alyeska Sourdough Bread. Perhaps you visit for lunch to indulge in a bowl of our hearty bottomless soup and a sandwich, all made daily from the freshest ingredients. Welcome to The Bake Shop experience! Brian & Isha

As others have written, this place was very disappointing. We stopped here as part of a tour out of Anchorage. The tour guide spoke highly of this place and boasted about the delicious sourdough bread. We could hardly wait for lunch. And then we were served lunch. First, we were served a portion of a cinnamon roll which was very dry. Next, we were served the sourdough roll, which did not taste at all like sourdough and it was pre-buttered and it was dryer than the cinnamon roll. Neither the roll and cinnamon roll were served warm. Last, we were served the soup which was nothing to rave about. Needless to say, we left the restaurant very disappointed and extremely hungry.

Had dinner here one night. A sandwich and salad. it was great. Made on homemade bread. There were also many desert choices and home-baked items. If you want a light dinner or a great lunch, stop in.

Nice healthy food. Unusual for traveling. Things like lentil soup and plain grilled cheese hit the spot. Unfortunately closes at 7, otherwise we would have eaten there more often.

The Bake Shop is a quaint shop with beautiful begonias outside and yummy soups inside. We had the beef and barley soup with sour dough bread. I wondered why they don't use the sour dough buns for soup bowls. The cinnamon roll for dessert was scrumptious, and the serving is huge.

We were glad that the Salmon Berry Tours has this as a lunch stop on its tour. Appreciated that it didn't taste like it had the Aramark mark on it.

We went to the Bake shop one morning for breakfast and it was pretty underwhelming. First off the name is misleading since they dont have much for baked goods except giant cinnamon buns so you cant get muffins, bagels, scones etc at this place. Service was slow and not very friendly although the egg breakfast was of reasonable quality.
