A wonderful place to fill your sweet tooth , from cookies,donuts and breads and even treats for the dogs. I am a bear claw fan and the traditional one was very good but the apple bear claw was incredible! The gift shop with all of its moose attire is adorable what a great selection for young and old.

Eveything is to die for (or at least in our case drive 70 miles for!).Apple fritters, jelly filled donuts (my favorite), too many pastries to mention, rolls and breads! Sooo fresh, all made in house. Plus a cute moose centered gift store.

Here it is, short and sweet: everything they bake is terrific and the hardest decision is what to order.

OMG!!! If you don't stop here when your on the Kenai Peninsula, its your loss! Old Fashion Bakery. Walking in you get captured by that amazing smell of home made baked goods! Every thing is fresh and delish! They even have an area to sit down and enjoy a treat with s cup of fresh coffee.....you WILL NOT be disappointed❗️
