Our favorite coffee shops and morning bakeries
We love their donuts! My husband picks up a glazed donut every week for our daughter before he comes home. I love their cinnamon and sugar cake donuts. They roast coffee too.

Libations
Our favs for a drink in town.
Their beers are becoming well-appreciated across NC. Our favorite is their Longleaf IPA. They have giant Jenga, a food truck, and relaxed outdoor seating. They also donate a portion of their proceeds to local causes.

The perfect place for a glass of wine outside. The view is amazing. The food is a bit fancy for us but you can get burgers at the pub there.

Local shopping
The place to see and be seen on Saturday mornings in Boone. Lots of local produce, baked goods, and crafts. Plus it's next door to a historic homestead site you can wander around for free.

You can rent bikes here. Boone has some great road bucolic road biking around Valle Crucis, Sugar Grove, and Todd. You can also hit the Blue Ridge Parkway if you are feeling brave and energetic. Really nice and helpful owners and staff.

Food scene
We have a lot of favorites after 10 years living in Boone. We love food so please let us know if you find a new favorite.
It's a really fun alternative scene in Boone. You feel like you MAY be in a bigger city (maybe). They have fun sushi rolls and a chic atmosphere.

This is one of my go-to restaurants in Boone. It's set in the old jail house. It feels elegant but homey. They feature homemade local Southern foods, but they still feel fresh and healthy. Try their tomato pie and cobblers.

The best place in town for breakfast (in my humble opinion). I loved their quiche and side of tempeh. Get there early on the weekends or be prepared to wait.

Get outside
Because you have to get outside when you're in Boone! Summer is a delicious time, but spring and fall are delightful as well. Winter can be a bit more challenging but there is plenty of skiing around.
You can walk there from our apartment. Runs over a stream. Lots of runners, cyclists, kids, and dogs.

You can get to the Parkway off of 105 in Blowing Rock. Our favorite short hike is Green Knob Trail and favorite long hike is Boone Fork Loop Trail (next to stream and also has great picnic spots). We also like EB Jeffress Park Cascades Trail for waterfalls. Canoeing on Price Lake is beautiful in the fall.

We don't mountain bike, but I have trail run a lot here. It's the perfect and challenging loop. They also have picnic tables and a really fun playground with lots of ropes challenges for the kids.
