We love donuts, and these are very good! All the reviews about friendly staff are true. There was a nice variety of items to choose from, we couldn’t decide so we ordered 6! Lots of funny moose photos to check out, as well.

Here is an original. From the fresh donuts in many types to the amazing fish cookies. I beseech you to stop here if you have any reason to travel between Homer and Anchorage!

If your going in the summertime, expect a line. They make genuinely good donuts - their maple bars are just outstanding. You won't find better in Soldotna. A bit pricey if you are from out of State, but worth it.

We bought apple fritters and cinnamon apple bread and they were simply delicious! The bread even had chunks of fresh apple. It is a cute souvenir shop as well. Highly recommend!!!

They do not have a traditional breakfast but with everything pastry item I can think of, it is your own fault if you leave hungry. I have probably had at least 1 of everything they make. It is terrific
