It's hard to drive by this place and not be drawn in by the urge, the pull of warm, delicious donuts! It's a must-stop to get your quick fix of morning coffee and an unreal selection of donut goodies :)

Wonderful baked goods, always fresh -- fast service for as tiny a place as it is. Great moose-related gifts for the poor people who don't live in Alaska!

We love donuts, and these are very good! All the reviews about friendly staff are true. There was a nice variety of items to choose from, we couldn’t decide so we ordered 6! Lots of funny moose photos to check out, as well.

Here is an original. From the fresh donuts in many types to the amazing fish cookies. I beseech you to stop here if you have any reason to travel between Homer and Anchorage!

They do not have a traditional breakfast but with everything pastry item I can think of, it is your own fault if you leave hungry. I have probably had at least 1 of everything they make. It is terrific
