Lunch at White Grass Cafe in Canaan Valley
One of Canaan Valley's widely known cross country ski destinations is White Grass. But my wife, Jamie and I discovered for ourselves they are also a fantastic cafe! Follow Freeland Road off of Rt 32 until you start seeing flags of many nations waving proudly down a driveway and you'll find this out-of-the-way gem.
The first thing that hit us was the wonderful aroma of freshly made chilli. We walk through the ski fitting area and up into a cozy cafe with a traditional chalkboard menu. They are serving everything with an Artisan's flair; from funky Asian chicken soup to crispy paninis. They've got a friendly staff and a quite colorful owner that makes you feel like a welcomed old friend. Definitely put this place on your list!
