North Country Café
Open early every day, this Northwoods family favorite serves a truly great breakfast to power your day on the trails, and hearty lunches too until 3pm. Link.
Happy Otter Woodfired Pizza
Happy Otter is located out on the trails! Head west of the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area on the Cuyuna Lakes State Trail and you’ll spin past the woodfired pizza shack (before you get to Riverton), which is open on weekends between Memorial Day and Labor Day. There’s no car parking, which means Happy Otter is our only ride-in, ride-out dining. Link.
