History, fun, and massive portions of food come together at this institution, which was built over 3 years starting in 1914. Aside from stopping by for a bite to eat, you can book accommodations at the Talkeetna Roadhouse. Choose from a variety of cozy rooms in the main roadhouse and wake up the smell of fresh baked goods from the Kitchen in the morning. Or, for a more private experience, book one of the cabins out back or the Museum Apartment at the end of the block.
A bona fide small-town coffee shop on Main Street. They serve good coffee and espresso drinks and have ample seating. The atmosphere is great, with lots of locals, Alaska-made art on the walls, open mic nights and art for sale. The food is standard coffee shop stuff—soups, sandwiches, baked goods. It's healthy and tasty, but nothing special.
