This place is delicious. Everything they make is tasty. Be warned you may put on a few pounds after a stop here! Doughnuts are world class

Staff always pleasant and donuts and pastries always fresh and enjoyable. The flaky dinner rolls are amazing. Cakes can be very good, moist and editable (says someone who usually doesn't eat cake)0 Anyone from out of town should visit once. They sell very unique items and it's worth a browse or to. It for someone special at home.

A great bakery that specializes in donuts however their pies, cakes, tarts, torts, cookies and bread are also great. Bring your own cup and the coffee is complimentary when you buy an item.

Friendly staff and a perfect place to meet friends or for visitors to sit with locals and chat. It's that kind of place. The pastries are always fresh, the staff always smiling and the sign always entertaining. If you live here make it a daily stop. If you're visiting, stop in and enjoy a donut break or pick up some...

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.

The Moose is Loose is my family's favorite place in Soldotna. Get there super early in the morning for donuts, bear claws, and Moose-sized donuts as big as a dinner plate.

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.
