After a long day exploring the island, we'll see you back for a slice of heaven with one of our fresh-made desserts. Even linger, watching our bakers working at the large baking table and get some tips on honing your skills. We'll see you soon at Brown Bear Baking.

Once inside we quickly figured out that there were lots of great items we could really like. We had coffee's and took home a loaf of Apricot/Fig Sour Dough Bread. We loved it for several days with the last being Croutons for our salad. A great addition to our time on Orcas Island

Great pastries and sandwiches. Go early or you will miss out!!! Only open from 8-4
The owners definitely have a passion for baking and it shows.

This has got to be the best pastry shop I can remember going to.

Your biggest challenge will be to resist the temptation to buy one of everything. They open at 8:00, but on weekends, there's a line of 15-20 people waiting for them to open up, so you may want to get there early. We came back one day to pick up lunch to go, and discovered that they don't have all their pastry varieties out first thing.

VERY BUSY place due to the excellent baked goods. The bread pudding was to die for. Get there early for best selection.

This place is a gem. It a bakery where literally everything is prepared in front of you. My son and I had terrific ham and cheese panini's. Made with Niman Ranch ham, local apples, house baked multi grain, and good quality cheddar. We did not have the sweets or coffee but they also looked magnificent!
