Breakfast is coming to Dalton City.

Baker Cambria Goodwin will be operating The Pilot Light out of The Klondike building starting in May.

Goodwin will serve breakfast and lunch until the afternoon, and the restaurant will revert to The Klondike in the evening. “It just seemed kind of like a natural transition when The Klondike is only used a few hours a day, realistically,” she said.

Fare will range from BLTs on fresh-baked, bacon sourdough and build-your-own grilled cheeses to pastries and breakfast sandwiches.

Goodwin has been working with Klondike owner Steve Anderson and resident Eric Forster to spruce up the place by painting, replacing light fixtures and redoing the tables. “We’ve been over the past couple months giving the Klondike a facelift, or just a different aesthetic in there,” she said.

Anderson and Forster borrowed a chainsaw mill from Fairweather Ski Works and cut a fresh slab of wood for the new bar, Goodwin said.

After opening in May, Goodwin said she will spend the first month gauging how the operation works including what days bring the most customers, what hours work best and what menu items customers like most.

“It will be a rotating menu, especially at the beginning, seeing what works and what people like. It’s kind of an experiment at this point, to see how the town reacts to it and if the town supports it,” Goodwin said.

Goodwin moved to Haines in November. At 13 years old, she started her first baking job in California. She graduated from the California Culinary Academy, worked as the head pastry chef for Portland’s New Cascadia Traditional Bakery and appeared on the Food Network’s “Cupcake Wars.”

Goodwin also owns Confectionary Archaeology, a cake-baking business using local, seasonal ingredients and natural food colorings.
