“Popular for a reason”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Two kids and three adults all enjoyed their soup and sandwich lunch here along with a great BIG cookie to satisfy our sweet tooth when we were done. VERY slow line, three people went to the bathroom while we waited to place an order and finally we placed our order. The food came out in good time and was heartily consumed! Very basic food stop, nothing fancy about it. The pies, breads and desserts all looked like great treats to 'take away.' It is Alaska and Seward, Alaska where everything is going to cost more than it should anywhere else. But, when your hungry go to the Bakery.

“Enough to satisfy most tastes....”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

If you are in Seward then its fishing, hiking, joining/finishing a cruise or taking a tour on the water to the Kenai Fjords by boat. Any one of these activities may get you through this bakery’s door early morning and perhaps for lunch. Or as we saw, many locals having a bite here, making the most of the limited seating so we had to head out for other seats near the water. This bakery has really short hours for a tourist town - 0500am-300pm. Nonetheless we came for the bakery items and everything appealed to the eye and the taste buds except for the prices.
Not unexpected given the location however some items seemed a little overpriced.

Breakfast items included Oatmeal, Burritos, Bagels, Hot Meats, Potatoes Sourdough Waffles, Toast, Muffins, Donuts and Cinnamon Rolls. It’s a wide choice and the price will reflect the item chosen. They will make up a box lunch you can take away which includes a Sandwich on your choice of bread (sourdough is popular) with several fillings to choose from, a piece of Fruit, a Cookie and Chips. - extra for a beverage.

Other items on the extensive blackboard - a selection of Soups, Burgers, Philly’s, Dogs’, Fish and Chips, a range of Cakes and Bread Pudding. We shared one full regular sandwich on sourdough with tuna and cheese, a carrot stick, pickle, a huge 4-inch round cookie and a latte each (enough change from a twenty-dollar bill for a small tip). The service was quick and friendly enough (no smiles) but we guess they see lots of visitors and it’s a business that had a huge patronage while we were there.

Enjoy your experience!

“Quick bite to eat before cruise”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

We stopped in for a quick breakfast before our cruise left at 10am. They were very busy, but service was pretty fast. Had a bowl of clam chowder soup there the day before that was very good.

“Good- ish”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

I guess we are not huge fans of sourdough bagels, but they were ok. This is A VERY popular bakery, be prepared to wait. Oh, and don't even think about a bagel after about 9:30am- they run out. That seemed very odd to us, because they are a bakery and they serve breakfast until 11am.
