We went on pizza night and had a terrific wood-oven baked pizza and a delicious salad. The pastries looked fabulous but we were too full to try. It's a little drive out of town but quiet and charming. Highly recommended.

Flying Squirrel catered our wedding, and the food and service were outstanding. We were able to choose a custom menu, and Anita handled the rest! They did dish rental for us and provided non-alcoholic beverages. I have been to weddings with so-so food, and this was not one of them! All our guests raved about the food, and our photographer...

Had lunch at the Squirrel and was happiest with their baked goods; fine rugelach cookies, lemon/raspberry coffee cake. Wanted to try pizza night.

We stopped for lunch and had a great lunch-soups sandwiches and dessert. The baked items were so fresh and good--like we were in NYC. The bread was great and the place is very clean and friendly. This is a must stop even if you are driving on the Denali Hwy--it is just off the highway towards Talkeetna.

We arrived at lunch hour, ordered a full sandwich and a half of the same (the daily special), and 40 minutes later got our lunch. There were at least 5 people in the kitchen, and the place was only half full, so no obvious reason for the delay. The half sandwich was much smaller than either of the halves of... More

We stopped in on our trip from Fairbanks to Anchorage. The service was friendly. We enjoyed some sandwiches for lunch followed by a brownie and a rhubard oatmeal cookie. All of the foods are organic and some options were vegan.
