The baking is superb. The limited hours of operation are overlooked by the quality of the pastries. It's reputation is not overrated!

These are so good! All handmade, sweet and yummy, they make cakes, cookies, breads, and even dog treats! Some donuts are HUGE!! Nothing like a Maple Bar and Milk!!

Quaint bake shop. It has all you need. Giant Donuts to cookies, brownies, pies, brownies. The best part was that they sell a variety of freshly baked bread. We took the apple cinnamon loaf and it was delicious.

If you haven't tried this place, you don't know what you are missing out on. Not only do they have wonderful donuts they also have really good cakes (Champagne cake #1) is the best. I would give it a 5 but their check out procedure...More

Was bummed they were out of the apple fritters since I tasted a sample and it was delicious. Ended up with a buttermilk crueller which wasn't as tasty as the fritter...was a bit on the dry side.

One of the few places I would rate 5 stars in the Soldotna/Kenai area. Consistently excellent baked goods. I have to restrain myself from stopping in every time I drive by! We love EVERYTHING in The Moose Is Loose!!! Great service and great Doughnuts!!!!

They do not have a traditional breakfast but with everything pastry item I can think of, it is your own fault if you leave hungry. I have probably had at least 1 of everything they make. It is terrific
