The cozy spot, which sits on the banks of Bear Creek, bustles with both locals and tourists in search of made-on-the-premises wines and a well-rounded menu. Creekside delivers with sips like the easy-to-drink, lightly tannin-ed Cab Franc and a menu of hearty paninis, made-from-scratch soups, and fresh antipasto.
Best bets include the soups du jour—don’t miss the roasted red-pepper bisque or, if available, the vegetable medley—and the rosemary chicken panino with fresca mozzarella, grilled chicken, and roma tomatoes on focaccia. (FYI: The sandwiches are easily shared.)
Bonus: Children are well served, too, with whipped-cream-topped hot cocoa and a kids’ menu—think grilled turkey and cheese on focaccia with applesauce or fruit on the side.
