This little restaurant and bakery which is almost in the middle of nowhere is hard to stop for when you know it's just another three or four miles to Talkeetna on the spur road. But if you do, you'll be treated to some strange and wonderful flavors. All their food is freshly made with their own baked goods including breads... More

We went here for breakfast but oops, they don't have a formal breakfast. You could buy coffee and a bakery item. Tish tried the fig cookies, they were tiny and quite strong tasting, not our favorite. Instead of breakfast, we bought the Sunflower Seed Rye bread and took it with us. All 4 of us enjoyed this bread, it was... More

We went to the squirrel with a local, she said it was her favorite, we understand why. The coffee was hot and tasty and the baked goods were delicious. The place is decorated in a unique manner that only adds to the overall experience. If we were staying longer we would have tried the lunch menu or the pizza.

We liked the name of the restaurant and decided to give it a try to avoid the crowds in Talkeetna. Great decision. Delicious pizza from a brick oven and the cookies and brownies were great too

Stopped in for a late lunch. Choices are a bit thin, two sandwiches, chili was fabulous, bakery was good. A bit slow, and not able to easily handle our group of 8. Loved the chilli and it came with a slice of killer bread. Dessert and coffee were wins.

Pizza night is once a week. We stopped one day and got a couple of excellent bagels for takeout and tried to go back a couple days later for bagels, but, alas, bagels are only in certain days. Anyway, we decided to go for the pizza and got a Mediterranean one. Very tasty. We had a couple of their sweets,... More
