Although they have a daily fresh baked bread and homemade soup schedule I chose to visit during breakfast hours. Their breakfasts are very nearly legendary around these parts. Seating here is 'family style' which you might end up dining with just about anybody from a fellow traveler to a local fisherman to someone fresh off climbing the mountain. You have to appreciate their menu for it's simplicity. You have two main choices: BREAKFAST & NOT BREAKFAST, any questions?
Barb went with her customary half order of Biscuits and Gravy which still filled the plate. I went with the Standard #1 Scrambled Eggs, Potatoes/Cheese, Thick Cut Pepper Bacon, and a Biscuit w/Gravy. The food fills the plates and is intended for hearty appetites. I enjoyed mine thoroughly, but Barb and I both agreed that the Biscuits and Gravy were very bland and required quite a bit of extra salt and pepper (and hot sauce on mine). Our choice of OJ or Cranberry Juice was included as part of our breakfast in addition to my coffee. The service was excellent.
Barb and I enjoyed the ambience and food here, but would go without the Biscuits and Gravy next time. I'm thinking either one of their plate size sourdough pancakes or enormous plate size cinnamon, pecan, or raspberry breakfast rolls.
Interestingly, the mobile Alaska Magazine and Milepost camper was visiting our campground for a ratings review and to book next year's advertisements as we arrived back in camp. Our visit to Talkeetna was very enjoyable although we could have been just as happy here in only 3-4 days instead of a week. On to Denali.....
