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.
