Expensive. But well worth it. Generous fresh food baked in front of you. Great valu despite the sticker shock....not a lot of other choices. Try the scrolls. Vary daily butwe sampled 4 and they are best.

Stopped in Flying Squirrel for breakfast. Lots of choices for all food types. They have a great play area for children so very family friendly.

The desserts are fabulous, had a slice of cheesecake, and it was heavenly. They have a wide variety of desserts from cookies to pies to cakes.

The place is really cute with some native decor worth buying. Had some yummy sandwiches and soup. Service was somewhat slow. Make sure you use the northern lights coupon here

About 10 miles before you get to Talkeetna, is a small sign announcing The Flying Squirrel which is set back in the trees. Inside is a delightful restaurant serving soup and sandwiches made with freshly baked bread, and fresh vegetables, often from their own garden. Their cookies are also delicious (I like the rosemary shortcake). There are often surprising food... More

What a great find on our side trip as we headed to Denali. We loaded up on their baked goods and were delighted that they had several gluten free options for my companion with celiac. Our favs were their double chocolate peanut butter cookies and their zebra cookies. Wow! OK, they were so good that on our way back south... More

Breakfast the next time, had a egg bagel sandwich. It was bagel day so the bagel was fresh made. They have an open kitchen so you can... More

Flying squirrel is not your normal bacon and eggs place. With a full bakery inside, breads are their specialty and it tends to lean towards the vegetarian/vegan side but has meats too. It was so long ago now I cannot remember what I had except that it was a breakfast sandwich with bacon. The eggs came runny and I wasn't... More
