The Eating Establishment
- Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Dinner
- Good for Groups
- Good for Kids
- Takes Reservations
Eating Establishment holds the distinction of being the oldest restaurant in town (it first opened in 1972); consequently, the vibe is a little more low-key than some of the other restaurants on Main Street, with a cozy fireplace in the back and a diner-style menu that serves breakfast all day long. When new ownership bought the place last year, they upgraded it with a new bar (which serves excellent cocktails), so it’s a good après spot, too. Any time of day, the classic order is the Miner’s Dawn Skillet: a mix of potatoes, onions, and cheese, topped with over-easy eggs, which has been on the menu since the ’70s. As the restaurant’s official saying goes: They’re not good because they’re old, they’re old because they’re good.
