Favorites: Food in and around Canaan Valley

Our family definitely skis and hikes and bikes best when good food is a part of the plan. If we eat out while in Canaan Valley, it is generally at one of these favorites:

  • Whitegrass Cafe: during the cross country ski season this is the place to recharge between runs. Our kids love the Cuban pork paninis, while others of us go for the chili or mushroom/spinach/barley soup. Everything is good. And the weekend dinner buffets are worth making the reservation.
  • Sirianni’s Pizza, Davis: This place is a real landmark, and we love all the pizzas and their spinach salads. Go early/late on a busy weekend.
  • Purple Fiddle: great soups and sandwiches *and* brownies*. Come for dinner and stick around for some strong music!
  • Hellbender Burrittos: a fairly new place with a down-home atmosphere and good food. The namesake Hellbender burritto is spicy, big, and very good.
  • Blackwater Falls State Park: BWSP has probably not won any cuisine awards , but the lodge and dining room are pleasant – with a great view of the canyon. The food is fair but a decent value. We’ve enjoyed most the breakfast buffet there. Also a favorite is to stop there after a long hike or bike ride some miles down from Ilam House.
