All Day Outdoor Dining


Spring in Jackson is full of contradictions — one day is sunny and 72 F, and the next is back to 30 F and snowing. When one of those beautiful days does pop up, you’ll want to savor every moment outdoors. Here’s how to spend the whole day eating outside around town.

For Coffee

Pearl Street Bagels in Wilson is the most idyllic spot to enjoy your morning coffee. With a great location on Fish Creek, the Pearl Street Wilson location serves up delicious coffee and lattes to fuel your outdoor adventures as early as 6:30 a.m. With matcha and chai lattes, almond milk and coconut milk, there’s a warming morning drink for everyone. Grab yours to go and sit at one of the picnic tables overlooking the creek.


The Bunnery Terrace

For a Quick Breakfast

The Bunnery, just north of the town square, has a lovely, bright front terrace, ideal for enjoying one of their infamous pastries before strolling around town. All of their baked goods, pastries and desserts are made from scratch — try the signature sticky bun or cinnamon roll. For something a bit less sweet, order the Bunnery’s trademarked O.S.M.  (oats, sunflower seeds, and millet) granola or oatmeal, or grab a bag to bring back home.

Hatch’s Bloody Maria

For a Long Brunch

Starting on June 1, Hatch, Jackson’s answer for fun and sophisticated Mexican cuisine, will be serving brunch on their fabulous outdoor deck.

For Lunch

Dornan’s Pizza & Pasta Company, located in Moose, boasts both an upper and lower deck and has hands down the most spectacular view of the Tetons. The mouthwatering pizzas are named for nearby peaks. Try the Thor Peak if you’re a carnivore or the Mount Wister for the veggie inclined. New to the menu this summer is the chicken pesto Panini with mozzarella, provolone and roasted Roma tomatoes. Enjoy with a tasty local micro brew.dornans deck

For Dinner

Calico, the most popular summer spot on the West Bank, is the best family friendly option in the valley. Calico boasts one and a half acres of play field just off their spacious deck, complete with toys and lawn games. Parents can enjoy a fabulous dinner and glass of wine while the kids play on the lawn. Don’t miss the famous spicy margarita and wood oven pizza.

For a Drink

Hit up the infamous Stagecoach in Wilson, a Jackson institution since 1942, for after dinner drinks. Lounge on the outdoor deck with a beer or play beach volleyball. The ‘Coach is especially fun for “Sunday Church” from 6-10 p.m. and Disco Night every Thursday. If you’re still hungry, StreetFood @ The Stagecoach serves delicious, non-fussy food like sweet corn fritters, Philly cheesesteak, and Al Pastor tacos until 9 p.m.

Now go get outside!
