We love going to the bakery. Service is perfect and the food is to die for. Pastries are so good. Cheese rolls, cinnamon bread, buns. All baked fresh every day. If you're passing through Soldotna check out the Moose Bakery. You won't be disappointed.

Charming place. Good coffee. Heavenly pastries (you will want to purchase some orange bread to go). Friendly and efficient staff. They've definitely got a good thing going!

I'm a baker myself so I'm very critical of baked goods! I had the custard filled donut which was spectacular. My kids had the blueberry muffins and sugar cookies shaped like a salmon which were both very good. The staff is super friendly too.

Seriously! The best donuts and pastries I've ever had anywhere, hands down. It's a favorite of locals and visitors. Be sure to get there early in the summer, as it gets busy and the line gets long. They also have a great gift store with...More

This is the best bakery on the peninsula. The apple fritters are out of this world and so are the cream filled, chocolate covered donuts. I'll keep coming back.
