Flying Squirrel Bakery Café is the culmination of my dreams and experiences including working as a professional baker for over 15 years and gradually moving further and further north until settling in Talkeetna. My family, immediate, extended, and the family that is this amazing little town, have been immensely supportive and encouraging throughout the process of building the Flying Squirrel from the ground up during the winter of 2009.
Flying Squirrel Bakery Café is a deli-style eatery located in Talkeetna, Alaska serving all kinds of delicious sweets and hearty, wholesome foods for eat-in or take-out throughout the morning, afternoon and evening. A variety of pastries, freshly baked brick oven breads and creative savory items are available to locals and visitors year round. Wood fired pizza nights, special brunches, holiday treats, special orders, wedding cakes and catering are some of Flying Squirrel's specialties.
As an owner and the manager of Flying Squirrel Bakery Cafe, I work hard to fulfill my dream and achieve the following goals: to create a long term, locally owned and operated, simple and accessible food establishment in a peaceful setting that utilizes fresh, local or organic ingredients whenever possibly and provides a creative selection of delicious foods. It is equally important that this business reflects responsible and thoughtful development, care for the environment, attention to health, nutrition, and food issues, a cooperative, creative work setting, and commitment to the community. Click here to see some of the ways we are actively trying to make a difference. It is my sincere hope that Flying Squirrel Bakery Cafe will attract customers traveling by car, truck, RV, bicycle, dogsled, snowmachine, baby carriage, on foot or on skis and that it will fit in with the natural setting loved so much by Talkeetnans and visitors to Alaska alike.
Brian, Oliver and I welcome you to the Flying Squirrel and hope that you will help shape the future of this little cafe by walking through our doors - often, by giving us your suggestions, and by using your voice to let others know we're here.
