Even though The Bake Shop is 40 miles south of Anchorage, it’s still worth a visit — especially if you’re exploring beyond the city anyway. Open seven days a week, this casual and inexpensive restaurant and bakery serves three meals a day. Breakfast is a hearty affair with sticky sweet rolls, sourdough pancakes, and fluffy omelets. The lunchtime and dinner menus feature bottomless bowls of soup, sandwiches, and rye crust pizzas. Pick up some home-baked bread and strawberry-rhubarb preserve to enjoy in your hotel later.
