Driggs, Idaho – Best Restaurants

This post was created from our 2019 August trip. Make sure to confirm what is open during the corona virus pandemic before hitting the road.

Big Hole Bagel & Bistro was our first stop again for breakfast in Driggs, Idaho. We are always impressed with their service and their portions get us ready for a day of adventure. My favorite is the veggie omelet with the addition of avocado. The building is historic and has been part of Main Street for over 100 years. There is a full bakery in-house so the bagels are baked fresh every morning!

A new one for us this time was the Warbirds Cafe at the the Driggs-Reed Memorial Airport. This is a unique setting with gorgeous views of the Teton and Big Hole ranges. There are huge windows and a terrace to watch the planes arrive and depart while you enjoy your meal.

The Roasted Teton Caprese with Steelhead Trout was melt in your mouth amazing! All of the food was incredible plus above and beyond service. Here’s a quote from their Chef and Manager, David Hugo…

“I think of food as medicine,” says David Hugo, “You always want to put the best stuff in, which is usually local, fresh, and close to the source. The closer to the source you can get it, the better the flavor and the more nutritious.”

There is also a very cool Warbird Airplane Museum to check out while you wait for your food and sip on a glass of wine.

Another new one for us that Terry was super excited to check out (you know how he likes his local beer) was Citizen 33 Brewery. Terry loved trying the different local brews and we both loved the atmosphere.

I tried this beautiful steak salad and Terry had the burger. Both were very good! We weren’t surprised since the owners are the same as Forage Bistro & Lounge. We look forward to hanging out here again in 2021.

Then we had to go to our other favorites! Forage Bistro and Lounge is on the very top of our list. There is something about this little bistro. They treat you like your a local or family and the food is over the top good. It’s amazing what they put out considering the size of their kitchen. So, so, good! Literally some of the best meals we have ever tasted.

Rise Coffee is a must! They have an awesome outdoor patio/garden area to spread out, live music on Sunday mornings and the best coffee. We love their avocado toast and fresh baked goods. Yes that is bacon. 😍

Get there early because they get busy!

If you’re visiting during the summer, check out Music on Main in Victor which is just 8 miles away. There are shuttles offered from Driggs. We love this event! The music is always awesome and it feels like a big family picnic. Music on Main was cancelled for 2020 but watch for the 2021 dates! It runs on Thursdays through the summer.

Another must! A huckleberry shake from the Victor Emporium.
