“Easy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

In the back of one of the gift stores in the older downtown near the Sea Life Center, you can get coffees and a few pastries and soups. Comfortable, there's bathrooms, and you can read the paper.

“Good not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2011

I've had a variety of baked goods from here. Most of it is satisfactory and even good. They have my favorite cookies of anywhere in town. The bummer part for me is the coffee, it has been quite inconsistent. So for coffee, I am getting drip from now on or none because when I spend 4 dollars for a mocha I want it done at least good and the same or similar each time. Then I had the quiche, first off I dont usually eat quiche so I am not a connoisseur, but is it supposed to be really greasy and oily? I can tell you this I only took two bites then decided to stop, wasn't sure if I should bring it home to my husband or throw it away, it was spendy so I brought it home to him, he likes quiche, he threw it away after one bite, so over all, great cookies, less than good coffee, and gross quiche.

“Tasty pastries and friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2011

This small bakery in downtown Seward, a town not suffering from a lack of bakeries and espresso places to cater to the tourists and cruise ship passengers, is the one you should visit. The croissants are flaky, the scones yummy and the staff is really nice.

“How sweet it is!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2011

A bright and pleasant (even sunny on some days) place to enjoy bakery treats and a great but light lunch. The almond-pear scone was fresh and tasty. Croissant items are reliably flaky and good. Eclectic local art collection adds to the fun.
Expect a wait at peak breakfast and lunch times, but it's worth it.
