Bread, sandwiches and soup was yummy!

Wow this is a little gem tucked-in in nice wooded area just off the main road when you get off the Alaska 1 highway on the way to Talkeetna. If you are driving from Anchorage to Denali and even if you are not going to Talkeetna, I strongly recommend to take a few miles detour to visit this place... read more

We were in a hurry for a tour, and almost left due to the extremely long wait. Food was OK, but nothing spectacular. Found it to be a granola, trail mix type of place.

They didn't have that many gluten free things like advertised in the mile post. The atmosphere was good though and a nice spot :)

I prefer my bread to be light an airy, what I had was very dense and thick. The flavor was good just too much for me

Peach and ginger scone: amazing! Yes, this place is a gem. It is about 10 minutes ride from Talkeetna. Very nice setting, colorful and quaint. Saturday and Sunday they have pizza and it is really good! My only suggestion to the ladies at the counter: smile and be a bit friendlier? Other than that, it is a great place!

We were in Alaska to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary, and Anita from the Flying Squirrel helped make this an absolutely wonderful occasion for me and my parents. This bakery was recommended by the Talkeetna Alaska Lodge when I asked for a wedding cake, so I emailed Anita and asked if she could make a surprise wedding cake for... More

This was a random stop while traveling about. A lovely bakery. Lots and lots of choices. Their stuffed cheese breads are very yummy! Loved their zebra cookies and peanut butter crisp bars.

We stopped here on a whim as it looked interesting. Turned out to be some of the best food we had in Alaska! The grilled cheese with smoked salmon was wonderful! All the breads were outstanding. We ordered desserts to go and all were outstanding! The brownie was out of this world. The blueberry rhubarb bar was great too. I... More

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
