You may have noticed that the Copper Kettle is closed on most weekdays and that on Thursday & Friday, it does not open until 4. This leaves many visitors wondering “where do I eat at Bryce”? As Basye is a small town with only a few immediate options, we want to make sure that our guests are not surprised! Since all our units have full kitchens, one option is to plan ahead and bring supplies for your meals. But if that’s not your style, keep reading!

  • During the summer the express grill offers breakfast and lunch options. The Express Grill is located near the resort pool complex.
  • During the winter, the Shenandoah Center also offers many breakfast and lunch options. We recommend the breakfast burritos!  It is typically open when the lift is turning.
  • The Community Store offers coffee, bagels, made to order sandwiches and subs and more. (We also recommend their local bacon but that’s a separate blog post all to itself. Yum!). Located just outside the Bryce Resort at 1502 Orkney Grade, its new owner, Harvey, has done a great job renovating to meet the needs of visitors to the resort and locals alike.
  • Freed’s Biscuits Co.  has recently opened right here in Basye. Not only is it an amazing place to get a breakfast biscuit and really, really good coffee, they also have a full bar and lounge area downstairs. Don’t let the name fool you, Freed’s is for more than “just” biscuits. And keep an eye on their facebook posts for pop up hours.
  • Bartolo’s in Mount Jackson offers excellent Mexican food and will even deliver (really!!!) for a $5 delivery fee. Dine in is also available. Mount Jackson is only 11 miles away. Closed Monday.
  • Plan a visit to one of our nearby towns! Woodstock has several options you can combine with a hiking trip to Seven Bends State Park:
    • Flour & Water is open Wednesday to Saturday (check their website for specific hours). They offer breakfast, lunch and specialty pizza nights!
    • The Woodstock Garden Café is open Monday to Saturday from 8-3 and offers breakfast, lunch, coffee drinks and beer and wine.
    • Las Trancas in Woodstock opens daily at 11 and offers excellent Mexican with both dine in and bar service!
  • Likewise Mount Jackson, just 11 miles away, offers dining opportunities which can be combined with a visit to explore Shenandoah Caverns.
