We drove to Homer for a quick overnight stay. Arrived in the early afternoon and enjoyed a gorgeous Sept. Day. Not much was open for a bite to eat until we stumbled upon the Boardwalk Bakery....this is so much more than your traditional bakery. We were pleasantly surprised that they made sandwiches and we were starving. Being a vegetarian I... More

There's a new owner but she's great. Very friendly and willing to make sure your order is exactly right. The food is very good. Had the turkey cranberry sandwich and was very pleased. The hot cocoa is delicious too.

We sampled some baked goods from here two early mornings in a row. Really enjoyed the Raspberry cinnamon rolls, lemon bars and chocolate croissants. These will satisfy your sweet tooth! The ladies were very helpful as were got there about 6am. We were thankful to have something available to help us jump start our morning.

I am a local resident of Homer. I stopped in to the Boardwalk Bakery to grab a snack on my way from work this summer. I believed that they made high quality baked goods and wanted to try. I only had a few dollars so I just wanted something small and the owner told me I was a little late... More

Wow!! Where to begin! You are correct in your assumption that we serve high quality baked goods. We try to have something for most tastes. The chocolate peanut butter incredibles that you purchased are one of our most popular items. We sell hundreds of them every week. In fact, most people that buy one will come in and purchase several... More

This place had good breakfast and is a great stop to get a boxed lunch for your fishing trip or other tours. The seem to use focaccia bread for all their sandwiches which isn't my favorite. I am not sure if they had alternatives, so if you don't like that bread, just be weary.

Thank you for your very nice review of Boardwalk Bakery. We are so glad that you enjoyed your lunch, but sorry that you didn't like the focaccia bread. Please understand that since our shop is so small, we simply cannot offer the choices that larger places can. We tried to choose a bread that would hold up in backpacks, coolers,... More

Bacon panini is a staple and we can't get enough! Thank you for this awesomeness on the boardwalk! The cinnamon rolls are the kids' favorite but the sweet ladies behind the counter make us feel like family!

The coffee was great! The rolls were a little dry and bland for my taste. I have had them all over the world and Cinnabun still rules! I did hear you should try the Raspberry Cinnamon rolls!
