Classic small town restaurant! The decor hasn't changed since the 60's, which adds to the charm. It's super busy all the time, your coffee will never be empty, it seems like everyone knows everyone, and their pancakes and bacon are so good! We love breakfast here. Skol!

Sweet little spot for good coffee, good home-made soups and sandwiches, scones, and muffins. It's a cozy little place that's nice for a long conversation with a friend. Easy walk from my house.

Our favorite spot for really good and authentic Mexican food. Their smothered burritos are terrific, and their fajitas and molcajetes are superb. We actually think their food is better than many Mexican restaurants we've been to in the Southwest!

This place is like going to an old mansion in Ireland, where you eat in the neat old rooms that have beautiful woodwork, fireplaces, and old world decor. Really good salad bar, very good walleye, Sunday brunch, and a neat pub that makes you feel like you left the USA. Love it!

Unique and fun, you’re in the old train depot! Feels like you stepped back in time, but it’s new, fresh & hip. Tasty food and drinks, friendly staff. We like that you can sit in the lively & noisier pub side (w live music sometimes) or find a quieter spot on the dining car side.

State Bike Trail
The Central Lake Trail comes to Fergus! There are 2 trailheads w potties, & bike fix station. You can rent bikes from Central Lakes Cycle, and hit the road! It’s a beautiful, paved trail. We like to ride to Dalton and have breakfast at the little old diner! Step back in time. 🙂

One of our favorite places to go in any season! Fall is spectacular for leaf-turning, but we enjoy year round hiking and snowshoeing, and even a leisurely scenic drive!

We love coming here for a fun day on the paved bike trails or in the water. Rent a canoe or kayak, it’s fun to go on the channels between the little lakes. You can ride all the way into Battle Lake for an ice cream at Granny’s or dinner at a host of great places! Such a beautiful and fun park!

The pics here don’t show it, but this is a lakefront pizza/nachos/Mexican/bar that is just a fun place to go. People drive their boats right up to eat, it’s super casual and a bit crazy, but we head over to Zorbaz about 10 times every summer! Sunsets over the ENORMOUS lake are pretty, and you can find some pretty cool merch, as well. We’re always happy when Zorbaz opens back up for the season!
