Whenever I visit somewhere I love reading about shops and restaurants from locals. So here is another list of my favorites around Ketchum, Idaho.
Konditorei - I love the Chai Latte and their chocolate croissants! And walking around Sun Valley Village is really fun with the kids. Or perusing the shops is fun too if you don’t have kids in tow.
Stanley Baking Co. & Cafe – Take a drive up and over Galena. Go for a hike or a dip in the lake, but most importantly start your day at The Stanley Bakery. It is only open seasonally, so be sure to check before you make the drive. And when you go be sure to get the oatmeal pancakes. If you are feeling like you are more in an egg mood: order the pancakes as an appetizer to “share”. I have spent years working on my own oatmeal pancake recipe inspired by The Bakery!
Big Wood Bread – They have two locations in Ketchum so if you are meeting someone make sure you know which one. In town is convenient for pickup or in the summer the patio is nice, but if you want to sit inside during the colder months the industrial area location is best. My favorite menu items are the cilantro lime salad and the tuna melt.
KB’s - I just love their fish tacos (and if I really want to mix it up I go for the shrimp tacos).
Wrap City - I always grab a Chinese Chicken Salad Wrap before catching a flight. They travel well and are much better than anything that you can find in the SLC Airport.
Galena Lodge – Another drive and seasonal spot, but this one is on the south side of Galena pass. Go for a Nordic ski or snowshoe and then hit the lodge for some of the best soup around. Every thing they make is amazing, but there is something about coming in from the cold and getting a warm bowl of soup!
