Creekside Café and bakery


Our bakery is home to our signature baked goods;  favorites like the Mt. Denali sized cinnamon roll, browned butter chocolate chip cookies, blueberry scones, Wilcox Family Strawberry Rhubarb Coffee Cake, and did I mention our homemade pies?



We have a gourmet espresso bar serving Alaskan Roastery Coffee. 

A great way to start your day.

of wine and Alaskan crafted beers

We have a small bar as well,

add a Bloody Mary to your brunch

Our Café is the heart of our home.  We are situated on the banks of beautiful Carlo Creek with breathtaking views of the Alaska Range. Relax and enjoy the amazing mountain views from our deck while you sip a cappuccino planning your day's adventures or drink a cold Alaskan craft beer while you reflect on the day's explorations.

Our menu is a mix of traditional favorites and Alaskan seafood.  Our food is locally sourced when possible and always prepared with love using fresh, quality ingredients. We grow herbs and veggies in our greenhouse and our talented chefs create nightly dinner specials using the garden-to-table harvests! When it's fresh AND made with love, you can taste the difference; from our fresh homemade breads, house smoked turkey and ribs to our AMAZING bake case filled with delights you are sure to find something you'll love.


In light of Corona Virus we have expanded our outdoor seating and encourage guests to sit outside and socially distance. We are always happy to prepare any of our delicious meals to-go and have expanded our Grab and Go selections. For more information for what we're doing to stop the spread see our CO-VID 19 Updates.

The Creekside Café was born from Holly's passion for cooking and Tracey's love for baking. Over the past 20+ years and three restaurants later we have learned a lot. We have high expectations for ourselves and for each one of our carefully selected cooks and service professionals. It is a privilege to live and work in such an amazing place and an honor to serve you. YOU make this possible and it is our goal to exceed your expectations with every plate, every time, all while providing excellent hospitality and service. 

We appreciate the honor and opportunity to serve you.
