Stop in for a visit at Flying Squirrel, a unique cafe with creative deli-style menu and artisan breads baked in a wood-fired brick oven. Something for everyone: vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and meat-lovers, too, organic Alaska-roasted espresso, free WIFI. Wood fired pizza on weekend evenings. Three miles from Talkeetna - no tour bus crowds, trees out the windows, open year round.

THE BREAD & BAKED GOODS WERE AMAZING

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... read more

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.

We stopped for lunch we had, Spanikopita, grilled cheese panini, and Cream of Chicken soup that was the best ever! We also purchased some baked good to take with us...If you are in the area this is far better than any of the Tourist trap fare. Prices are comparable to other eating establishments.

We stopped at Flying Squirrel Bakery Cafe twice during out Alaska trip. It is about 10 miles away from downtown Talkeetna where most restaurants are located and it is an easy to miss the turnoff to the right of the Talkeetna spur road to a wooded area- there is only a small wooden sign. The cafe itself is not visible... More

We stopped here for breakfast on the way out of town. It was delicious! Great quiche and bagel panini. Also bought many great bakery items for our drive. Many local grown items and unique local art. Must try the rhubarb ade. Highly recommended.
