I second the Pancake patio (I think it is one of the few places you can get breakfast), Quincy's is very good if you like steak and not variety, Eddyline in BV has a good brew. Also, Amica's has good pizza and the Boathouse has a good variety of entrees. I just about named every restaurant in Salida. My bad.

Patio Pancake Place has all the typical breakfast fare. I have had most of it and have not found anything that I would not get again. However, the half order breakfast burrito is the best and you will be hard pressed to get more food for $5 anywhere. And the coffee is actually pretty good. Cafe Dawn is also very good, but a slightly smaller menu.

For dinner, do not miss Amica's if you like beer. They brew 5-6 of their own, and a few have won awards at Great American Beer Fest.

Besides Amica's, which the beer lovers want to know about because they have some fairly decent brews (had their Oatmeal Stout the other night - very good;) I would recommend the Boathouse Cantina on the riverfront - they are fairly well tapped with local craft beers and good standards, and I think they have a really good menu - and they have some smoking waitresses if that's a consideration at all. Moonlight Pizza is also a really good slice. The Fritz is really good for smaller plates (or their standard Steak and Fries) and a real bar if you want something besides a limited on-tap selection of beer - something that is actually distilled. Bensons, Currents, The Vic - all good standard food and drink... sometimes a hit, sometimes a miss. Overall, I think Salida has one of the better mountain-town selections.

For breakfast, the Patio Pancake Place and Laughing Ladies for different reasons... they are both good, LL is more a brunch place, more expensive, but the atmosphere and menu may be more appreciated for casual Saturday or Sunday visits.

Amica's was an Il Vicino once upon a time. Is it still the same beer?

I'll add another recommendation for Patio Pancake. It's a pretty standard breakfast joint, but the food is really good at a reasonable price.

Lots of people will recommend Amica's for lunch or dinner, but I personally prefer Moonlight Pizza much more than Amica's. The only problem with Moonlight is that it's more of a summer place because the indoors seating is very limited in winter.

To this day, Amica's seems to be a carbon copy of Il Vicino, except that the quality of both food and beer seems higher at Amicas to me.
The IPAs have similar flavor profiles, but I prefer Amica's by a good margin.

Biscuits and gravy.. Nuff said.



+1 on this. Had breakfast there twice this last summer. Loved it. Good breakfast, decent prices, very nice folks working there.
Seems like the times that I need a mountain the most are the times that I can not get to them.
