These are our recommendations for places to get a bite to eat – there are plenty that are not on the list as well!

Please check with the business for any hour changes, seasonal openings, etc.


Headwaters Bistro & Deli 7:30am-2:30pm (closed Mon/Tues) This lively little spot just opened recently (April 2023) and it’s always packed! We’ve heard good things but hven’t tried ourselves yet.

Rico’s Mexican 11a-8:30p (closed Sun) Lynda + Cris’ go-to (and we lived in San Diego for 10 + 5 yrs respectively)! Chile relleno and horchata, pozole, tacos, can’t go wrong.

Maria’s Mexican 11a-8p (closed Mon)

Mountain Pizza 11a-9p; delivers! (We prefer them over the other pizza place in town, Pizza Factory)

Feather River Co-op 9a-7p (Sun 10a-6p) small local co-op grocery store w great deli sandwiches + craft beer selection

Nichole’s Coffee Depot + Deli 6a-3p (closed Sun) drive thru coffee/deli

Mountain View Cafe 8a-3p (closed Mon) Brunch!

Unfortunately we can’t recommend the Portola Frosty – this business has demonstrated thru multiple instances that they feel it’s appropriate to display inflammatory messages and posters. We choose to support other local businesses that encourage a strong, healthy, and friendly community.


The Brewing Lair (Blairsden) – outdoor “biergarten” style craft brewery with local brews. Also a variety of specialty non-alcoholic drinks! Bring your own food, or there is usually a taco truck.

Cuccia’s (Graeagle) – local family run Italian restaurant open for dinners

Bread & Butter (Blairsden) – food truck style brunch
