Where to Grab Breakfast in Talkeetna

  • Talkeetna Roadhouse - One of Talkeetna's oldest restaurants. They serve all day, but their hearty breakfasts are especially worth stopping in for. Before you leave, grab a pasty or a razzie (or both!) for an afternoon snack. The Roadhouse is decked out in old photos, antiques, and expedition souvenirs from climbers who have attempted Denali, many successfully.
  • Conscious Coffee - Sweet and savory crepes served folded in quarters so you can eat them like a sandwich, plus yummy baked goods and top-notch coffee drinks.

Favorite Talkeetna Lunch Spots

  • Denali Brewpub - Partner to the local Denali Brewing Company. Serves up microbrews alongside fresh sandwiches, salads, and down-home Alaskan favorites like reindeer meatloaf and beer-battered fish and chips. Also great for dinner.
  • Spinach Bread - Food truck that's usually parked halfway down Main Street. They specialize in their famous Spinach Bread, a thick slice of freshly baked spent grain bread topped with a melty combo of chopped spinach, garlic, and cheese. Decadent and delish.

Top Talkeetna Dinner Restaurants

  • Wildflower Café - Wildflower Café serves refined-meets-rustic dishes, with the chef tailoring daily specials to the fresh local ingredients on hand. Their Seafood Curry is especially tasty.
  • Mountain High Pizza Pie - A menu full of the big, family-friendly dishes you want after a long day adventuring in Alaska. Their pizza dough, marinara sauce, and soups all come from family recipes that are many generations old.
