“Watch for the signs - on the right coming from Anchorage - worth your time!”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

We stopped in for coffee on a cooler, rainy day after visiting Talkeetna. Warmed by the huge brick oven for their artisan pizzas. Their coffee blends and flavor combos are 2nd to no one. The pastries - cranberry, walnut, chocolate chip cookies and apricot/almond rougelach - devine!

“Great place with tasty, fresh food!”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

The Flying Squirrel is an awesome bakery with great selection of breads and other treats. We stopped for lunch and soups and sandwiches were tasty. Unique selection and fresh ingredients made it a place we'd love to return to.

“So-so experience”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

Food was fine, but nothing exceptional. We ordered the Panini's for dinner and they were a bit dry and hard to chew because the bread was dried out. My husband was put off by the fact that he tipped after ordering and didn't realize that there was no service, other than bringing out the food, so he had tipped more than what he felt was appropriate. We got our own silverware, napkins and salt/pepper, etc. for ourselves. Also, I noticed that the other customers had ordered pizza and their crust looked a bit burned, but it may have been fine for them. Just didn't leave us with a great impression overall.

“Cookies and pastries AMAZING”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

Give this place a try and you will not be disappointed!

It is outside of Talkeetna on the spur road as you come into town so stop on your way in and you will be very happy you did!

“Great bakery”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

Great bread and vegan/vegetarian friendly dinner items. They were very helpful and accommodating - with our large group we had many special requests and they managed it all.
