We love coming here for an early morning trip to town. The selection of goodies are wonderful and the coffee is always fresh and hot! I love taking my grandchildren here for a special treat! My favorite is the danish doughnut.

Get there early or you'll be standing in a long line out the door. But even if you see that line, it's worth the wait! If you like cinnamon... More

This is a great bakery in the heart of Soldotna. It is known for its made daily donuts and bread. In addition, there are other bakery items, i.e. cakes, muffins and more. There is even a "moose themed" gift shop.

If you're in the Kenai or Soldotna area, and have a sweet tooth, I guarantee you'll love the Moose Is Loose Bakery. Not only do they have the greatest selection of delicious pastries, cakes, and breads, but they also have a very nice gift shop inside. We don't get over there nearly as much as we used to, but when... More

A wonderful place to fill your sweet tooth , from cookies,donuts and breads and even treats for the dogs. I am a bear claw fan and the traditional one was very good but the apple bear claw was incredible! The gift shop with all of its moose attire is adorable what a great selection for young and old.
