Where the Locals Eat
The best way to visit Osceola like a true Osceolean is to take a few tips from the people who know the area best!
For a small town, Osceola has quite a variety of restaurant choices — from fresh from the oven breakfast pastries to juicy hamburgers —organic gourmet meals or ethnic foods like Mexican or Chinese.
Start your day with a local favorite- breakfast at the Watershed Cafe- they focus on local food and the back deck puts you right above the rushing sounds of Geiger Falls. Before you head out to the river, grab a quick made to order sub at BP, or pop into the deli @ Dick’s Fresh Market. While you stroll around town later in the afternoon, enjoy an old fashioned ice cream at The Looking Glass or a latte @ Expressions Coffeehouse or Caribou Coffee.
In the evening, head to PYs back patio where you can enjoy their famous burgers and fries while you view the illuminated Cascade Falls. Warm up around a fire while you catch a game at The Lanes back patio. Tippy Canoes's is known for a tasty ahi tuna plate and great music. For the gourmet, you can dine in a romantic setting with a candlelit five course dinner served by reservation only at St. Croix River Inn.
