Sunriver is known for its spectacular scenery and outdoor recreation, but it also serves up a broad range of delicious meals to satisfy any taste and budget. This area has everything from casual cafés and brewpubs to fine dining, and in this article, we introduce you to a few of the best.
The Food at The Village at Sunriver
One of the easiest ways to grab a delicious meal is to visit The Village at Sunriver, an outdoor shopping, eating, and drinking area of town. Here, you can get everything that you need in one trip, while ensuring that every family member is satisfied. Here are the top options.
Sunriver Brewing Company
A great way to cap a long day of fun activities is with tasty comfort food and a tall glass of beer. Sunriver Brewing Company, a bar and restaurant, is a staple in the area. You’ll see vacationers and locals alike sitting inside or out on the patio, and everyone is welcome. The bar even has a play area for kids.
Choose from fresh food like pulled pork tacos, fish and chips, French onion soup, bacon burgers, and delicious chili. Drink it all down with one of its four IPAs or a beer sampler. The bar also has seasonal brews to help you ring in the holidays. You can even purchase beers to go.
This option is for takeout or delivery only, but it’s worth it if you can find a place to eat. It’s extremely popular and often cited as the best pizza in town (as well as one of the best in Central Oregon.) You get a pizza with thin crust — but not too thin — and plenty of toppings. The restaurant also offers calzones, tasty sandwiches, and salads. The pricing isn’t bad either!
For breakfast or lunch, Café Sintra is a real treat. Enjoy delicious cappuccinos, chai teas, tasty soups, and hearty sandwiches with an artisan flare. The café offers delicious eggs Benedict, and the flank steak salad is also worth a try. The fresh-squeezed OJ is a favorite, and there is also an extremely tantalizing dessert window right at the entrance.
South Bend Bistro
This cozy and romantic seafood restaurant is perfect for anniversaries or special occasions. Choose from tasty crab cakes and seafood to duck, pasta, and filet mignon. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. It also has delicious cocktails and an impressive wine list.
