There's no reason why your mid-ride caloric refuel needs to be all stale muffins and energy bars, which are often gross enough to make you want to just go off a Clif. Tweaking the resto 'n bike shop concept by actually offering great food: Chilkoot Cafe & Cyclery.
A Stillwater hybrid named after one of the city's most dastardly steep hills, brick-walled Chilkoot's cafe and bike shop are divided by a full kitchen and large chalkboard menu, both dedicated to robust comfort food made with locally sourced goods from places like Thousand Hills Cattle Co and Crystal Ball Farms, which predict in the future, you will be eating. In addition to Chilkoot-roasted coffee beans, their AM menu's packed with hearty staples like the two eggs/ bacon/ ham skillet Brass Tacks, a traditional corned beef hash, and the mushroom/ Parmesan/ peppers/ basil Sausage Scramble, not to be confused with an all-dudes urban crit. For later bikers, comfort foods include the Chilkoot Croque (ham, cheddar, and sweet onion-tomato jam on ciabatta), a house reuben, and the bacon-wrapped, sriracha-glazed Meatloaf Melt, plus wines and US craft brews such as Brau Brothers Scotch Ale, and a Deschutes porter called the Black Butte, aka...you know what, nevermind.
Their shop is Stillwater's only full-service cyclery, combining a do-it-all repair pit with the higher-end retailing of American brands like Ridley and Moots, which is also what you can now call a discussion about which energy bar tastes the least gross.
