Skis and boards are getting waxed up, and all of our warm winter coats, gloves, goggles, and ski pants are coming out of storage. There’s not enough snow yet to do anything other than stare longingly at the possessions we are getting antsy to use. What to do while we wait for the snow to fall? Grub! We’ve compiled a list of our go-to’s for a quick bite or a relaxing and delicious meal.
Clint’s Bakery – A must for those coffee lovers out there! Clint’s has great coffee as well as some one of a kind breakfast sandwiches on an assortment of bagels.
Daylight Donuts – Daylight has a wide selection of fresh baked doughnuts daily and fantastic breakfast plates such as biscuits and gravy. Be sure to try their famous sausage rolls and get there early or be prepared to wait, as it is a small place with limited seating.
