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.
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.
