The food is decent and the restaurant was close to our cabin. Filling breakfast and enough coffee is important for me to kickstart start my day, but the portions seemed small and there were no refills on coffee. Also similar to other restaurants in AK, a little $ than what I consider reasonable for a typical American breakfast.

If you are in Talkeetna you MUST swing by here for breakfast once. All 4 of us got different orders and we each loved ours. I got the cinnamon and honey toast, it was heavenly.

I can't recommend this place enough. We were in town for just one day and went for breakfast. They have an excellent selection of breakfast items, coffee and baked goods. Everything was outstanding! I took some cookies to go and wish I had bought all of the ones they had. ;)

We stopped here on the way back from Talkeetna for a snack. There were so many baked goods to choose from!. We tried the Black Brownie, which is 30% black beans. It was surprisingly good. We also got some Rugelach in three flavors, a blondie which was by far my favorite, and a toffee, chai tea, and rosemary cookie. I... More

This hippy, flower child bakery and cafe in the forest with a wood fired brick oven and artisan breads (some gluten free) is worth a trip out of Anchorage. The creative menu, trying to utilize locally grown produce, is one of the kind cafe. My partner asked “why don’t we have something like this is Sacramento?"

Truly an unique bakery with some of the best tasting bakery items. Fresh brewed coffee was an welcome break after a trip from Denali. Their coffee crumble cake was the perfect complement.

A good choice of teas, cakes and breads, all home made and well presented. Worth the stop on the way to/from Talkeetna or breakfast/brunch/snack/tea.

The smell of this place is wonderful, and all cakes and pastries are home made, which was a nice change. The prices though seemed a little steep as 4 coffees and 4 pastries were $45. I appreciate its Alaska, but although nice, didn't merit a price higher than a Starbucks.

This is a must if you are hungry at talkeetna! The food is beautifully displayed, home baked and delicious. Best coffee we have had in Alaska. The pride they have in their product is very evident.
