Beginning as a one-man show back in 1984, the Alpine Bakery has developed into an organic bakery, café, and grocery.
In 1995, the Bakery moved from 4th Avenue to its current location at 411 Alexander St., in the landmark log building in Whitehorse’s downtown.
At the end of 2016, after 32 years, the founder and owner Suat Tutzlak retired, and Silvia + Walter, from Germany took over the Bakery.
Hello, we are the new owners
of the Alpine Bakery!
We are excited to have moved from Germany to the Yukon. We love the openness of the land, the respect for nature and sustainability, and the healthy pace of living. We look forward to following Suat’s tradition of serving you tasty, wholesome and sustainable offerings.
We now offer a wider variety of German style breads, buns, pretzels, and cakes.

Our Traditional Brick Oven
Every evening, locally harvested, cut, stacked and dried firewood is fed into the chamber at the center of the brick oven, which is the centerpiece of the Bakery. Reaching temperatures of up to 800° F, by baking time in the morning it has mellowed to about 600°. The artisanal bakers then feed it with bread dough that has risen in special baskets, giving the finished bread a unique and beautiful appearance.
Bread bakes faster in the brick oven, and develops a delicious, crispy roasted crust and a special flavor. The brick oven is the key to bread so lovely it qualifies as a work of art.
What does it mean?
Our policy is “not just talk, do it”. Alpine Bakery is now a member of 1% FTP—we will donate at least 1% of sales to support environmental causes. 1% FTP is a world-wide alliance of businesses of any kind who annually donate 1% of revenues to NGOs acting on environmental purposes. The NGOs can be chosen independently by each member.
