We enjoy eating on the roof patio at the Trailhead Café and Bakery. The sandwiches and salad are excellent.

We have been fans of Trailhead for the last 3 years. They have had some service issues over the last year or so, but their food offerings are a wonderful change from the basic "bacon and eggs" fare of most of the local cafes.

My stepdaughter had Balsam sandwich, which she really enjoyed, and I had the healthy backpacker salad. The potato salad and chicken salad both tasted home-made. It was a huge plate of food!

Trailhead has the best hashbrown casserole and also the best club sandwich. I always find the staff helpful and friendly. I enjoy going in for a donut and coffee.
