Started by a friend's husband who got a sourdough starter and began making bread for family and friends in his home; word of mouth sharing moved him to start selling it and he moved the operation into a small space behind a storefront with access through an alley entrance, hence the name. After a few years, the store took over... More

It's always delightful to eat here. The people are friendly and the food is made fresh. I like that they change the menu so you have different foods to try. The desserts are always tempting as well as the breakfast favorites.

Our sandwich was on freshly made bread and we chose a delicious Gumbo soup as the side item. The total was only $16.50 before tax for both meals. (we just had water to drink). The atmosphere is nice and so was our waitress.

Today my wife and I both had a tuna salad sandwich with a cup of Great Plains Gumbo. (The Gumbo even included sausage and shrimp.) very tasty. The bread was fresh and good. All this for $8.25. The waitress was very nice and the meal was served quickly. We will be back.

Traveling through Hastings, partly vacation trip and partially a family history visit...found this lovely bakery! Looking for a good cup of coffee and with a little luck some really homemade bread to take on the road. Back Alley Bakery delivered both! Wonderful sour dough - multi grain bread (to go) and a nice cup of coffee. Checking out the lunch... More

This was one of our best dining experiences on a recent 10 day vacation through the upper Midwest. The soup of the day (chili) was wonderful and the vegetable panini was equally tasty. The service was outstanding. If you have a few extra minutes stop here to eat and relax.
