This is by no means an exhaustive list of where I like to frequent, but it’s a pretty good start. Feel free to share this blog post with your wedding guests, friends and family members if they will find it helpful.
The best kind of day starts with breakfast, or, as I prefer, second breakfast. You’ll find me most often on the patio at Artemis Lakefront Cafe, where they offer up a platter called the Greek Breakfast that is fucking nothing short of perfect: gyro meat, eggs, pita, crispy potatoes, and tzatziki. If you’re into pancakes or waffles, I’d head to one of the Red Hut’s many locations in town. If you love good coffee and quality ingredients, hit up Black Cabin Coffee near Stateline. For a cozy experience in the winter or an amazing outdoor lawn, head to the Getaway Cafe in Meyers, where they serve up breakfast every day until 2 PM. Bert’s is where you’ll find me when I’m hungover.
The views in town can be found at The Edgewood Bistro in the Lodge, which I’m somewhat loath to recommend because they have the absolute worst service on the history of the planet, but the best view. Solid backups for great views include the Riva Grill or Jimmy’s at the Landing Resort and Spa, which has the best wine list in town.
For a fancy or romantic dinner, look no farther than Cafe Fiore on Ski Run Blvd. They dish up rustic Italic dining in the coziest most romantic cabin in town. Reservations required. When I don’t want to go all out but I want Italian (which is basically always), then I head to Primo’s Italian Bistro. It’s incredibly cozy, the pasta is made in house and the staff is SO incredibly kind to locals that I just can’t get enough of my time there.
