This is a very nice little bakery, coffeehouse, and pizza place. Since it is located a few miles outside of Talkeetna, it is generally quieter and more subdued than places in town. Much of the clientele are locals, sort like an Alaskan "Cheers", where everybody knows your name. Excellent place to spend a morning over coffee and pastry with friends... More

This bakery had some tasty choices for breakfast, along with homemade breads and cookies. We enjoyed the food, and the friendly greeting and atmosphere!

What is there to say?? It's a bakery that serves a daily sandwich and soup. Soups have always been delicious ... never got to try the sandwiches as I get there too late and they run out of them?? The breads are good and the Wednesday and Saturday cheese bun is super delicious, but it takes them forever to find... More

I went for a coffee on a rainy day, the espresso machine was broken and I ended up eating soup and quiche and different types of cakes and biscuits. Very dangerous place! ;) Rugelach was indeed the best! Very nice people, doing this place with heart.

This cafe is a little bit out of town (3 miles) but worth the drive/walk!! The owner, Anita, loves what she does and it is very obvious in the food!!! They have options for people with intolerances/allergies and vegetarians/vegans! My most favorite treat was the "original" ruggelach, and the tastiest of all was the rhubarb-ade! Definitely a must!
