What smaller town doesn’t have its own take on the mom & pop diner with greasy spoon breakfast and claims to have the country’s best burger? Well, having opened a second location and serving over 40,000 cheeseburgers a year, Pilot Butte has the pedigree to back up that claim. Hell, it’s one of our favorites!
Sure, the coffee’s responsibly sourced and locally roasted -- you can find the beans in many of the area restaurants. Lone Pine also puts as much love into its cafe menu, which features a number of homemade syrups and chai blends as well as pastries from the above Sparrow Bakery, since anything it can’t make itself is brought in from someone who cares just as much.
