About 10 years ago, I thought to myself, "There is no one selling  Iñupiaq doughnuts to the summer visitors (tourists)  and locals".  From that point, I recalled my Mom's affection for baking & wonderful childhood memories of visiting Aaka's & Ataata's place. You can guess why I called my business, "Aaka's Place".  We started off as cottage food/hot food market vendor and grown into an Indigenous comfort food caterer. We'd like to share with you some of our comfort Inupiat foods, Especially our Iñupiaq doughnuts.  



At Aaka's Place, our mission is to celebrate and preserve the Iñupiat culinary legacy. From humble beginnings to an Indigenous comfort food caterer, we provide a unique, authentic experience for locals and visitors alike, offering the genuine flavors of Iñupiaq tradition.


At Aaka's Place, we envision a world where the warmth of Inupiat hospitality and the rich flavors of our heritage create a transcendent haven, sharing cherished memories and traditions with everyone.
