Fresh Artisan Cuisine Served Year-Round (coming soon)
The Village Café serves fresh artisan-style breakfast and lunch all year round. In summertime, dine on the patio with sweeping views of Lassen National Park, the pines and the big sky. Our talented chef adds a special little twist to favorite home-cooked dishes. Enjoy your meal with your choice of beer or one of our fine wines.
If you prefer a picnic, we prepare healthy take away meals year round. Order from the menu to go or let us know a day ahead and we will prepare a box lunch for your outdoor activity. Hike out and savor your lunch along a forest trail, or near the water at Mill Creek Falls, or Manzanita Lake. Take a scenic drive to Lake Helen and stop for a picnic at the base of Lassen Peak. You choose the spot; we’ll pack your lunch.
