Stopped here for a coffee and a freshly baked loaf of bread. All of the other food looked delicious. Really great spot!

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.

Went here for breakfast & we were very happy with our choice rather than eating in Talkeetna. Friendly staff, good food, reasonable prices. Food is made fresh & there are lots of options, seemed popular with locals as well as visitors. The bakery / cafe is small & the layout allows you to watch the bread & goodies being prepared... More

This was a dining highlight during our trip to Alaska. A rare place in Alaska where local ingredients are used in season (some from the owners' own farm). The rustic, cheerful interior had a slightly-seventies counterculture feel, with a huge bakery oven in view and food-themed work by local artists. The café is set back from the highway, with forest... More

Almost miss this one every time as the sign is small and discreet but you want to be SURE not to miss this child-friendly, aroma-filled source of fresh baked goods and pizzas. We love everything they make, and often stop going by in both directions. Sometimes in summer there is a tiny farm market in the parking lot and they... More

Can't believe I had to go all the way to Talkeetna for the most delicious rugalach I've ever eaten. The cookies and other treats were great too, but the rugalach...that was out of this world. We bumped into locals we recognized from area shops -- this is their go-to for lunch or a light meal.
