Stopped in in the morning of our road trip. We each chose a different pastry and shared with each other. There were no losers! Fresh, tasty, great variety. Would definitely return on our next trip. Did not disappoint!

The Moose is where everyone goes for donuts and coffee during salmon season. The line can easily stretch out the door and around the corner. Donuts are good and there are lots of unique items for sale; I bought my granddaughter some cute clothing.
