Description:

Fire Island Rustic Bakeshop, Anchorage, AK is a small artisan bakery located in the heart of South Addition one of Anchorages oldest neighborhoods, just south of downtown. Our line of baked goods include crusty, traditional breads, sweet and savory croissants and scones, hearty muffins, fresh baked cookies, frosted cakes, tarts, multi-grain granola, a variety of daily sandwiches, and holiday specialties. We proudly brew organic, fairly traded coffee and tea.

We arrive in the early hours of the morning to bake small batches of croissants, breads, muffins, and scones. We crack the eggs, zest the fruit, cook the chutney, slow roast the tomatoes, and (lovingly) feed the sourdoughs everything is hand made. Only the finest and freshest ingredients we can find are used in Fire Island baked goods. All of our flour is organic and specially chosen and milled for artisan baking. We believe this yields the best tasting and most responsibly made products.

We appreciate the community spirit that surrounds the bakery. Fire Island staff strives to provide great service and friendliness to all our customers. Come visit us as we are excited to share our love of baking.

Our Story



Fire Island Rustic Bakeshop was founded by Janis Fleischman and Jerry Lewanski in the spring of 2009.

A Family Affair


Jerry's love of baking began as a hobbya passion for cooking that he indulged in his off-hours. After retiring as Alaska's Director of State Parks, Jerry spent a year training at the San Francisco Baking Institute, where his passion for baking truly took off.

Janis shares her husband Jerry's passion for food and the culinary arts. Janis toured the country, studying bakeries around America, and discovered what works and what doesn't as well as what styles and tastes they most enjoyed. Janis develops the menu each season, oversees daily operations and makes sure that every batch of every scone, cookie and muffin comes out of the oven perfectly.

Rachel, their youngest daughter, began working at Fire Island in the winter of 2010. Though she started as a baking assistant, her enthusiasm and skill allowed her to grow into a head baker. After studying for six months at the San Francisco Baking Institute she returned to Fire Island as manager and part owner.

Fire Island is truly a family business. Daughter Greta and her husband Jason were Fire Island's first bakers, and Greta's older sister, Marya and her husband AJ provide invaluable moral support. Janis and Jerry's son Josh recently moved to New York City, but he continues to handle the PR for Fire Island. His wife Tess worked at the bakery for the first year and half to establish the marketing and branding and is responsible for much of its look and feel.
