After the Hike: Local Favorites

The Antique Sandwich Company So friendly! So helpful! And omgosh this caramel latte totally pwns Starbucks.
5102 N Pearl St, Ruston WA — (253) 752-4069
Tatanka I got the Bison Burger with Swiss. It was outstanding. Bison tastes like beef but has less fat than turkey and actually lowers cholesterol. And no one does it better than Tatanka! Fresh and awesome!
Dolce Si - Sicilian Bakery & Cafe Love this place.
Lunchbox Laboratory it was great one of the best burgers I've have
Greenhouse Restaurant Food is fresh and excellent
Blue Agave This is most likely the best Mexican in gig harbor. If you don't mind a smaller walk up to order place. Great in the nice weather to sit outside.Very friendly service. Best marg's in town!
Pizzeria Fondi $20 meal for two is the best!!
Blazing Onion Burger Company The sweet potato fries rock!
Moctezuma's Mexican Restaurant & Tequila Bar Gotta hit the happy hour street tacos shrimp and chorizo :)
Kinza Teriyaki Best teriyaki in gig harbor. Lunch portion is same size as dinner too!
Green Turtle restaurant It was very surprising that it had changed so much since last year. food was terrific, service was great and we had the whole restaurant to our selves. So drop by and try it for yourself.
Kelly's Cafe & Espresso They have the worst service! Waited 45 minutes for breakfast the food is good but I don't think I'll be back for a long time.
Pao's Donuts Best donuts in Pierce county. Waaaay better than Krispy Kreme.

Devoted Kiss Cafe Tried the sausage breakfast burrito! So good!
Thai Hut REALLY good! Very close to what we had in Thailand. Super busy and small place, so not good if you're in a rush or if you're a large group. Green curry was wonderful!
