Ok, if you're going to talkeetna or traveling on the parks highway, for crying out take a detour. Cozy little place. Wood fired stove pizza and a different selection of bread each day. Saturday featured cheese bread-holy crap it was delicious! Chai tea cookies yum! This is a place we never stopped at, but thank you oosik classic ski race!... More

Pizza & beer! Good selection of brew, food can be a bit eclectic, but each time I've gone it's been good. Save room for desert! try the bread too. Nice spot to go when it's cold out (most of the time between Oct-Mar) ...the big brick oven keeps the place nice a toasty.

If you're looking for healthy food, delicious snacks, or just great baked goods, this is a good place. It's a bit out of town, which keeps the crowds down and maintains a local atmosphere; it's definitely worth the couple mile trip!

Yes. This place is yummy. We had breakfast on the go(burrito and bread pudding) and it was still delicious as we ate the 2nd half of our portions 5 hours later! The birch syrup was awesome!

We stopped here on our way out of Talkeetna. We had wonderful baked french toast. The americano and chai were AWESOME. Family friendly. Health conscious. Will make a point to stop in the future!

This small, rustic bakery at mile 11 on the Talkeetna Highway is very good. All items are designed for those who try and maintain a healthy diet with whole grains and natural foods, many locally or home grown.

We bought some bread to accompany some stew for dinner. We had a chabiatta loaf as well as light rye. Both were excellent! Even a Talkeetna resident was impressed with the chabiatta. We did not have a chance to have a meal, but would eagerly try a meal based on the taste of the bread.

The bakery is located outside of town. Inside there is a warmth from the hearth and from the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. It was zucchini month, and it was in everything, including the chocolate zucchini cake they kindly turned into a birthday cake for our grandson.

We spent a couple days around Talkeetna were glad to get out of town. The one bright spot was breakfast at the Flying Squirrel. We had a couple of very tasty sandwiches, fine coffee, and took some excellent cookies for the road. This little place is definitely worth a stop.

We went in to get some coffee and lunch, the smell was devine! We ordered panini's to eat in with coffee, the coffee's came and we waited over half an hour for our meal. It wasn't busy with only a few other people coming in to get takeaways. It really shouldn't have taken that long to put some goodies in... More
