The Bake Shop

A touch of gourmet in the homemade.
Serving Alaska’s best breakfast for every visitor in Girdwood, Alaska, we offer delicious, cozy homemade breakfasts. Sit down and let the smell of fresh baked bread, bacon and steaming coffee fill your nose as you pour golden maple syrup over a stack of hot sourdough pancakes. Try one of our famous sweet rolls or take home a loaf of our homemade Alyeska Sourdough Bread. Perhaps you visit for lunch to indulge in a bowl of our hearty bottomless soup and a sandwich, all made daily from the freshest ingredients.

Welcome to The Bake Shop experience!

Menu Highlights

    The traditional morning glory of The Bake Shop is our unique, lightly spiced sweet rolls that have just the right amount of flakiness, buttery caramel, and a lemony glaze topped with sliced almonds.

  • Summer of ‘76 Alyeska Sourdough Pancakes

    With 3 sourdough pancakes, one egg and one slice of bacon it’s easy to see why this has been beloved on the menu for 38 years.

Here is an example of our logo shirts! They hold up very well after repeated washing/drying/wearing.....the logo print is just on the back of the shirt - a little different and fun! Men's and Ladies's shirts are available for $20.00 each as well as Kids shirts and Onesies for $15.00 while supplies last.

Also on the back at the lower hemline your tshirt is imprinted with: "Better Buns at The Bake Shop" paying homage to our sourdough buns of course ;-) Thank you to Becca for modeling the Ladies shirt and the Men's logo :

Our Sourdough Start

SourdoughThe foundation of every good bakery is its starter. Ours is a true sourdough, nursed and nurtured for almost 100 years, originally ‘mothered’ from a sourdough miner who mined for gold in our beautiful valley.

For over forty years we have cared for, fed, and doubled our starter every day, and like any loved thing, it has it’s own unique temperament that tests and challenge our bakers daily.

It is a labor of love we are happy to share with you!
