Healthy food at good value, and honestly some of the best coffee in the area. All homemade goodness from breads, soups, quiche, goodies, pizza .... you will find something to enjoy here. This place is worth the effort to find and stop in. She has gluten free and dairy free on her menu as well. Anita and her family rock!

Very nice place with gourmet food in the Alaska wilderness. They have upscale coffees and baked goods from scratch and made pride. The atmosphere is pleasant and a feeling of a refuge from the wilderness. It's a combination of a a coffee shop and bakery on the edge of things. The food is very good too! Healthy salads and a...

Really cool atmosphere and great baked goods. We ordered the roolatahs (I cannot remember how it is spelled) but they were perfect - not too sweet and not too much chocolate. There is plenty of parking and it is situated a bit off of the road. Make sure you stop and grab some coffee and a baked good! They also... More

We tried some healthy treats, both were good! We also bought a Panini for take-away lunch. It had an interesting concoction of items that tasted terrific together. Very nice atmosphere to eat-in as well. The wood fired bakery bread is delicious and they have a revolving schedule - different one each day. Highly recommended!

We loved the Flying Squirrel! It is a gem in the Talkeetna area. We enjoyed our delicious lunch and desserts from the café. We appreciated the local vegetables, vegetarian options, and organic ingredients. Keep up the good work and we hope to return when we visit Alaska again!
