On our second night in Hailey we went to that restaurant thanks to the reviews we read on internet. It's a really nice romantic restaurant. We had the lamb and the boneless rib, and the desserts are very good too, so try to have room for it.

Java Coffee & Cafe

In November 1991 Todd Rippo began what he would today describe as a selfish endeavor. Essentially he created a place where he would want to hang out. Java has a hand crafted bakery menu (most of the recipes from Todd's sister Annie) and breakfast and lunch menus that echo his southern California roots. In line with his original vision Java uses fresh roasted, fair trade and relationship coffees and serves it all in an inviting, rock n' roll atmosphere where the music is played a bit too loud!

A warm and friendly coffee shop, with all the trimmings. I especially enjoyed the sour cream blueberry muffin.

We discovered this little shop by accident on a recent trip to Hailey. They make their own ice cream using locally sourced ingredients. Though the variety of flavors is not large, the quality is excellent. I particularly enjoyed the huckleberry ice cream which contained actual berries. You can choose a bowl, cone or waffle cone bowl. The price was very reasonable for a large one scoop cone.

Power House Pub and Bike Shop

Reviewed By MakaiWashington_DC - Washington, DC

Ok, I was tired and hungry when we fell into this biker bar. Not that kind of biker, or bar. This half-bike shop half-shelter for wayward pilgrims takes pride in educating the uninitiated in basic beers and IBU (international bitterness units) and filling the keen desires of the initiated in hop-heavy brews. So they say. As a wine-drinker I'm way outclassed here but thoroughtly enjoyed my spaten and reminisced about my long ago service at the Brickskeller in Washington DC. As for the bites: everything made in-house with pride. I can vouch for excellent mushroom soup and seared ahi tacos and salad with spiced pecans (can't you sell those separately?!). Thanks PHPBS.

Delicious bakery goods - great selection of paleo items if that is your thing. Other good stuff also. Anything you want espresso and tea wise. They roast own coffee.

Zou 75

Reviewed By Classybabe99 - Toronto, Canada

If you order just appetizers, you will get a 5 star experience. However on this occasion, we made the mistake of ordering entrees as well, and that sullied the experience significantly. 3 out of 3 entrees were overcooked, and they are all over $25 per plate, so quality was to be expected. We only sent one back, though the other two should have been sent back as well. Overcooked entrees aside, we were overcharged by four drinks when the bill came and that amounted to $50 more than it should have been. Most of us have been to Zou 75 multiple times, so we know all of this is an anomaly.

Appetizers you should order are Beef Tataki, Green beans and Maguro bites which you have to reserve.

And check your bill.

LOVE. Everything I've had to eat or drink from here has been amazing! I'm currently nomming on the tuna panini with olive spread and had an outstanding latte earlier with their house made caramel. The burrito is yummy too. Best part? Friendliest service around! The wifi is also a perk, and plenty of space to hang out and enjoy!

This is such a beautiful woodsy starbucks with lots of old nostalgia like 30's vintage ski photos and a huge portrait of Hemingway. They also use the Clover machine which makes the coffee that much better.

Thai Cuisine Restaurant

Reviewed By A_RAdventures - Steamboat Springs

We were pleasantly surprised by the food & enjoyed two nightly specials, a massaman curry & sushi roll. Both were tasty & filling. The table next to us got the Thai donuts which looked yummy but we were too full. The Thai iced tea was very good. Staff was friendly & seemed to know all of the locals who came in.

Shorty's Diner

Reviewed By Patti T - Atlanta, Georgia, United States

Every time I come back to Hailey to visit family we have brunch at Shorty's. The service and food are excellent and consistent. They have a great Kid's menu with multiple options and reasonable prices. The servers are always very sweet and patient when it comes to the difficulties eating out with multiple children. It is one of the few places we take the kids. It is perfectly located Main Street which makes it a perfect stop on the way to the mountains.
