Poulsbo’s historic from-scratch bakery

Home of the Poulsbo bread since 1974!


Full-Line Bakery in Poulsbo, WA

Sluys’ Poulsbo Bakery is a small, family-owned bakery located in Poulsbo, WA, on Liberty Bay. We create natural grain, rye and sourdough breads, delicious donuts and pastries, and specialty desserts—all made from scratch. We think that the old way is the best way when it comes to baked goods, which is why all the breads and pastries we make are handmade in small batches, using only fresh ingredients.

The history of our handmade bakery

Many of our products are original recipes, including Poulsbo Bread, Brod, Sweet Black, Norwegian Black, Farmers, Jalapeno Cheese, and some are recipes from the Old World, such as Julekake, Stollen, Cardamom bread, Kransekake, and Fattigman.

In 1966 Marion & Loretta Sluys purchased Bauer’s Bake Shop, and renamed it Sluys Poulsbo Bakery. With hard work and dedication, Sluys Poulsbo Bakery has built a reputation for excellent quality and service. Sluys Poulsbo Bakery is now run by Daniel & Stephanie K. Sluys. Daniel is the son of Marion & Loretta and has been working in the bakery since he was 8 years old, once having to stand on a five-gallon can to reach the counter.

Sluys Poulsbo Bakery is my favorite bakery! We discovered this local destination on a recent family trip to Poulsbo and were blown away seeing the lines outside that lasted all day. It’s hard to choose what to order with so many options, but we selected 2 loaves of the famous Poulsbo Bread, a cinnamon twist, cardamom roll, cinnamon roll, tea cookies, lemon bars, raspberry cookies and bars. All were delicious! Everything is made from scratch and you can appreciate it in every bite. Breakfast toast made with the Poulsbo bread is a treat, we enjoyed the cinnamon pastries with coffee and the cookies as a sweet dessert. We’ll need to plan a day trip to visit this wonderful bakery again in the near future! - Carol Lee
Amazing home town bakery. By the traffic/lines you know this bakery deserves SIX STARS. I travel to Poulsbo about every 3 years - this is a destination and a trip not to be missed when in town. The pastries are fresh and the variety is great. The service is wonderful - these people know how to service a lot of people without compromising the friendly welcoming feeling. - DG
Definitely the best baked goods I've had in a while. Was driving back to Seattle from Port Angeles and craving a coffee and something sweet. Googled bakeries near me and Sluys popped up top of the list. Knew Poulsbo must be Scandinavian somehow but didn't know until we drove into town how cute it all was. Pastries here were pure buttery goodness! Wish we lived closer (love in CO, so bit of a drive for breakfast). Highly recommend if driving through the area!! Parking is an issue, but we found a space near the waterfront and walked back there to the cool folding bench/picnic table combos. - Tim Taravella
