“Ahh, the little coffee shop bakery”
Review of Magpies Bakery - CLOSED

Magpies Bakery
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast
Description: This local bakery is nestled in a little hill on the back side of Valdez, AK. Here you will find pastries and espresso served in a building that was built in 1902 and relocated after the 1964 earthquake. At Magpies Bakery you can satiate your sweet tooth, grab a breakfast sandwich to go, or simply hang about on your wireless internet while warming up on a rainy day with a cup of coffee, or a warm bowl of soup.

She makes everything there in an old converted two story house. Lovely. Freshly baked croissant sandwiches, espresso, coffee, and she filled us in on the whole city while she worked. If you want a nice place to spend a rainy afternoon, here's the spot.

This is the best bakery in town. They even serve gluten free items. Super yummy and great coffee and lunch too.

This adorable bakery is just missing the mark each time I go in. Everything on display looks amazing but the taste just doesn't reflect that. The girls that work the counter are quiet and not particularly friendly. It really is a shame and I want to like this place but the beautiful facility just doesn't make up for the bland food and dismal service.

The chicken wrap was great but the manager was rude to her staff and customers. Won't be going back!

Come early for the best selection (but not too early, Maggie is a new mom and sometimes her schedule varies). About 1 hour after opening is perfect. Sometimes he pastries are still cooling on the rack do if you don't see anything in the case just ask her what she had. Scones are good all day. The cinnamon rolls are best while still warm. Coffee shop atmosphere is very cozy. Saw someone write a bad review about the breakfast sandwiches but I think they are delicious.
