BEST OF IDYLLWILD: FOOD + COFFEE + LIBATIONS

BEST OF IDYLLWILD: FOOD + COFFEE + LIBATIONS

*ABOUT DELIVERY/PICKUP IN IDYLLWILD: Brick n' Mortar restaurants in Idyllwild DO NOT DELIVER, not even pizza - however, you can call BEAR NECESSITIES DELIVERY SERVICE for food delivery.
*ABOUT COTTAGE CHEFS: these are talented folks that live in Idyllwild but don't yet have a Brick n' Mortar restaurant... "cottage chefs" require more advance notice for orders - so please keep that in mind. Cottage Chefs DO often deliver for free, which is another great reason to support their small businesses. 

COFFEE & TEA

 

  • Alpaca Coffee & Tea: the best Matcha Boba Tea you've ever tasted! Also serving Espresso, Lattes, Cappuccinos, etc. Creative and modern approach to coffee and tea. 
  • Black Mountain Coffee: the best pour-overs, french press, & nitro - this is the place for you if you're a coffee purest (call 951-468-5095 for updated hours). Locally roasted beans + they have amazing coffee flight tastings - highly recommend! 
  • El Buen Cacao: the BEST mocha lattes & perfectly balanced cappuccinos (call 760-333-7690 for updated hours - they usually open late around 11 and stay open until 6ish) 
  • Merkaba Tea: handcrafted teas Made In Idyllwild - available by the cup or in bulk 
  • Shala Tea: elegantly blended teas, locally made pastries, and global home decor
  • Pure Bean Coffee: specialty boutique air roaster, locally made pastries, and the longest hours of operation 6am-5pm weekdays, 6am-6pm weekends.

BREAKFAST, BRUNCH, & LUNCH

  • Mama's Egg House: come hungry! Generous portions and delectable delights... a mix of American, Mexican, and Vegan-friendly brunch menu items... also great for lunch! For brekky we love the Vegan Chorizo Burrito or the Prosciutto Benedict (ask to sub Mama's Biscuits in place of the traditional english muffin) For lunch we love their the Humpty Dumpty Burger if you're really hungry. Outdoor seating Dog Friendly.
  • The Sunflower Bakeshop:  Lovely outdoor dog-friendly dining, and some limited indoor-ish dining (inside a covered patio). Daily special Quiche and/or breakfast sandwiches are our usual go-tos. 
  • Mile High Cafe: Offering elevated Californian cuisine focusing on sustainable ingredients. This brunch spot is connected to COFFEE & BOBA TEA spot: Alpaca Coffee & Tea. Outdoor Dog-Friendly Dining available. We recommend heading there on SUNDAYS for brunch, featuring the best of local Idyllwild live music! Our picks: The Bourdain brekky sandwich 
  • Raven Hill Bagels - truly delectable locally made bagels, sandwiches, and mini gourmet market.
  • Amelia's Donuts and More - not to be missed! Incredible melt-in-your-mouth hot n' fresh local donuts. Vegan, gluten-free, keto options sometimes available - place an order ahead of time if you want one of those specialties.  TEXT, don't call: (760) 285-4270
  • Mama Mia's Crepes: freshly made crepes, both savory and sweet. Limited indoor and outdoor (dog friendly) dining. We recommend the Chicken Pesto crepe with extra sauce for savory, and the Nutella Crepe with strawberries and bananas for sweet. 
  • The Red Kettle: classic American menu, generous portions, made with Idyllwild love. Hot spot location, right in the middle of town with a dog friendly patio.
  • Now Boarding Idyllwild - A local charcuterie board delivery - she also does BRUNCH boards! Check her out on Instagram @nowboardingidyllwild 

CASUAL LUNCH & DINNER

  • Brew Pub: (Lunch/Dinner) modern California pub style food + microbrews and craft cocktails. Great atmosphere, lovely view. Plenty of indoor and dog-friendly outdoor seating + a great view! We recommend the Fish n Chips (best we've ever had) and the Buffalo Cauliflower 
  • Idyllwild Pizza Company: Super casual, less expensive than Ferro pizza - but still really great - we recommend their Veggie Gourmet pizza if you're a green olive & artichoke fan. They also have excellent sandwiches and paninis - we are big fan of the Italian Sub. Plenty of indoor seating + dog friendly outdoor seating in front and back.
  • Dicks Dogs: A uniquely IdyllWILD experience. Irreverent menu, if you aren't into dick jokes, this is not the place for you. DELISH loaded hot dogs with vegan friendly options. This place is a food truck, usually located in front of Wild Idy , hours are typically 11am – SOLD OUT
  • Atomic Cow Creamery: A great selection of fresh deli-style sandwiches, subs, and my personal FAVE BURGER IN TOWN - plus ice cream, shakes and locally made pies n' treats all in one place! Limited outdoor dog friendly seating, great for takeaway and picnics.
  • Manzanita Cantina & Grill: Truly authentic and mouth-watering Mexican cuisine. Their al-pastor tacos and burritos are amongst our faves, along with their Enchiladas Suizas. PLEASE NOTE: this place turns into more of a bar scene at 9pm. If you happen to wander in for dinner around 8:45pm, be ready to be dodging pool sticks coming at your head at 9pm sharp. Our suggestion: stop in BEFORE 7:15PM for a great dining experience, or order food to-go. Looking for a real "locals" bar experience? Head there pretty much any night of the week after 10pm... not for the faint of heart! Please don't act like a tourist and get in a fight. Lol - but SERIOUSLY though. 
  • La Casita: Very unlikely for a fight to break out here, lol. This is a family friendly place, and a different approach to Mexican cuisine. In the battle of "Best of Mexican Food in Idyllwild" you're either Team Manzanita or Team La Casita. Try them both and decide for yourself! Definitely do not miss trying Roberto's Famous GREEN SAUCE - a delectable jalapeño and olive oil blend that will add miles of flavor to any dish, available to take home in a bottle - and we suggest you do! 
  • Cocina Libre: Cottage chef, no brick and mortar location. He's a busy family man, so he isn't always available for orders - but LUCKY YOU if he is! Click link above for his instagram and call or text 619-379-0648 to place an order.
  • Amelia's Donuts and More - has recently begun offering sandwiches, soups, & salads - reasonable prices, served with love and a smile by Amelia herself. 

BEST-OF DINNER EXPERIENCES

  • Ferro - Widely considered the "best" restaurant in town. Beautiful atmosphere, and a great spot for live music on the weekends, and Jazz every Tuesday. They also offer pickup. A great place for an extensive wine list, craft cocktails, apps, dinner and dessert. If you're celebrating a special occasion, this is your spot. Dog friendly outside. 
  • Cafe Aroma - recently under new ownership, Cafe Aroma is lovingly referred to as "Idyllwild's Living Room" by local. Excellent craft cocktails, and a beautifully expanding menu... vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free friendly! Large, warm, and cozy outdoor seating area that is a go-to for dog lovers - often featuring the best of local live music.
  • Fratellos - this should be #1 if you are Vegan - they have the BEST VEGAN PIZZA ever!! Often featuring a fun live band crooning old standards, blues, and if you're a singer... don't be shy, they love when talented folks get up to sing with them! Dog friendly outside. 
  • Gastrognome has always been an Idyllwild staple... however in our humble opinion the menu can be hit or miss. That being said, we always LOVE the French Dip (meat melts in your mouth and the dip is on point), plus their classic cocktail game is strong. Dog friendly outside. 
  • The Peak: Idyllwild's newest eatery provides something for everyone! Both family friendly and Vegan/Vegetarian friendly - the chef can make a "vegan" version of pretty much everything on their menu, including the hot wings - just ask!

DESSERT, BREADS, & TREATS

  • El Buen Cacao: Prepare to be HOOKED on chocolate for the duration of your trip. Most people that come here, end up coming back EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Incredible selection of locally handmade chocolates plus the BEST House Mocha in Idyllwild (or maybe, ANYWHERE). If you're a shake fan, don't miss out on their wildly addictive Chocolate Milkshake. So, so, SO good. 
  • The Sunflower Bakeshop: 54385 N Circle Dr, Idyllwild, CA 92549 - THE BEST PUMPKIN pie and sourdough bread you ever did taste... amazing EVERYTHING!
  • Idyllwild Ice Cream & Jerky: a local favorite, featuring vegan ice cream options and special dog ice cream treats. 
  • The Candy Cupboard - an Idyllwild institution - we recommend their yummy sea salt caramels! A great place to take the kids, and those young at heart!
  • Atomic Cow Creamery - Ice Cream, Pies, and various treats

WINE/COCKTAILS

Keep an eye on their instagram for Vinyl Nights - our fave local happening: spinning classic tunes every other Thursday. @thewinefinch
  • Middle Ridge Winery - a town favorite, featuring locally crafted wines and one of the best music spots in town. Check their website for music lineup: https://www.middleridge.com/Music-Events
  • Ferro - the best cocktails in town! Can't really just go for cocktails though - you'll need to eat as well - the food is fantastic, authentic Italian 
  • Brew Pub - the best locally brewed beer + excellent craft cocktails... not to mention a beautiful view and great live music (call ahead or check their instagram for music announcements): 
  • The Peak: Their back patio is a beautiful and tranquil place to enjoy a lovely cocktail, cold beer, or an elegant glass of wine nestled amongst the pines. Inside features TVs/Sports for a completely different experience.

  • With so much in my heart I am here to express myself on how Priest Salami saved my marriage from divorce. Myself and my husband were having some misunderstanding and it was tearing our marriage apart to the extent my husband was seeking a divorce. So I have no option other than to go to the internet to seek a solution to my problem. It was there I came across Priest Salami details and about how he has helped a lot of people by restoring their relationship. I contacted Priest Salami and in less than 48 hours my husband cancelled the divorce papers. Now myself and my husband live together in peace and harmony all thanks to Priest Salami for saving my marriage from breaking up. Priest Salami contact information are via email: purenaturalhealer@gmail.com. Whatsapp number: +2348143757229
