Food scene

Just a short walk away from the house, but easy parking in the back if you want to drive! You will not be disappointed with ANYTHING here. The pizza and beer are top notch. My go-to's are the Daredevil Pizza (spicy!) and the Cloud Surfer IPA!

This is Ashley Christianson's first restaurant and truly all of her restaurants are superb! Pooles has the best comfort food and family style plates. Do not miss out on the mac and cheese when you come! One of our favorite date-nights is to put our name down at Poole's and then head over to Whiskey Kitchen for a drink while waiting for our table!

Bars

Great place to have a drink and play arcade games! They have mimosa specials on Sundays (my favorite time to go!). This would be a really fun place to visit for a Bachelor/Bachelorette party. Can get pretty crowded on nights/weekends.

Breakfast/Brunch Places

Inside Transfer Co Food Hall. Best Bagels in the world! Can't go wrong with the #7 (Farmhouse cheese and pepper jelly) or classic bacon egg and cheese! The line in the morning can be pretty long. Pro tip: place your order online before you go and pick up once inside!

Hands down the best place to grab a pastry and a short walk from the house. Our go-to is the Ham and Cheese Croissant and the Morning Bun! You can also pick up some Counter Culture Coffee while inside.
