Delicious treats and friendly atmosphere

This bakery was awesome! My husband is LF and GF and this bakery had multiple options for him to choose from (amazing)! The regular bakery was very very good as well. We both had coffee that hit the spot! What an awesome place, can't wait to visit again!

Nice little Café outside Talkeetna. If you have time to relax a bit and enjoy healthy food, go there. Homemade organic bread in many variations.

We made 2 stops at the Flying Squirrel Bakery while in the area. We tried the Alaskan Barley Bread, Challah Loaf, Rutgala & Chai tea cookies. All of it was so good. Our favorite were the Rutgala cookies. We also tried the Rubarb-aid, it is a different drink an a bit on the tart side, but still worth trying.

I stopped by the bakery and cafe in July 2014. Baked goods were delicious. I wish I had baked more before going back to Anchorage. I highly recommend stopping by if one is in Talkeetna.

Based on the reviews I read, I turned off on my way to Denali from Anchorage to have breakfast at the Flying Squirrel. I am very glad I did! I had a terrific breakfast sandwich, as well as some great chai tea. I also grabbed some fresh bread and a couple of pastries, which I enjoyed on the remainder of... More

Had a terrific breakfast sandwich; everything was fresh. Staff seemed a little distracted - forgot one of the orders in our party. Free wifi is always a bonus.

Mango almond scones, pumpkin cookies - this bakery has loads of tasty treats that aren't overwhelming on the taste buds. Perfectly prepared brownies with surprises! Definitely worth a stop to pick up sweets for friends, family or co-workers.
