Hannah & Tom’s Guidebook

Food scene
Buena Vista punches far above its weight in the food and drink scene. Restaurants are almost universally family-friendly and casual. This is not an exhaustive list, but rather our favorites.
Fast casual food with a variety of bakery items, soups, salads, sandwiches, and entrees. Plus a frozen yogurt bar and good kids' meals. There is a patio for three seasons. It shares a building with The Trailhead, our favorite outdoor gear shop with local sporting guides. Check the local happy hour.

Fast casual whole food dishes, our favorites are the beautiful, huge House Bowls. They have a bar and happy hour. Great three-season outdoor dining with bocce and blocks for kids. One of our top picks.

The fanciest stop in town in the beautiful Surf, a 10 minute walk from our condo. Yummy food and posh drinks, but check and make sure it's open. At this point, it looks like it's open nights except Sunday, and Sunday brunch from 8 AM to 2 PM.
