Jackson’s historic Teton Theatre is home to a new production: a wood-fired pizza restaurant using primarily local and organic ingredients in its simple but fantastic salads, pizzas and desserts. Hand-stretched dough is made daily and topped with delicacies like house-pickled jalapeños, organic cremini mushrooms and nitrate-free bacon. A list of local beers and domestic wines complement the lively atmosphere. Anyone trying to avoid gluten, or eat dairy or meat free, can still enjoy a pizza from the many vegetarian options. The large space easily accommodates families and groups while also offering plenty of booths and small tables for privacy. The fresh salads are a standout, and if you happen to save room for dessert, you are in for a treat — a sizzling fruit skillet topped with a scoop of Moo’s ice cream or the classic late-night house-made cookies and milk.
Every town has a classic breakfast spot. Most just aren’t as good as The Bunnery, where everything is made from scratch daily and cooked to order. Known for great coffee and even better homemade bread (the O.S.M. abbreviation stands for oat, sunflower seed and millet), The Bunnery will help you start your day off right. Breakfast is so good you’ll soon come back again for breakfast or lunch. Homemade soups, salads and sandwiches will satisfy any appetite. The classic club sandwich and variations on grilled cheese are our favorites. On your way out, be sure to grab a bag of homemade granola and pancake and waffle mix to take home. Want something sweet? Take a whole pie or a generous wedge to go. The cakes and pies not only look great — they taste even better. No trip to Jackson is complete without a stop here. Don’t let the line fool you. It moves quickly.
In summer 2018, this historic Jackson soda fountain returned to the Town Square. Siblings Jessica, Nikki and Patrick Gill revived the business started by their great-grandfather, Bruce Porter, in 1919. Today, you wouldn’t know that the soda fountain closed its doors in 2001. Antique swivel barstools line a bar that holds a variety of house-made ice creams. Stacked into a sundae dish or swirled into an old-fashioned milkshake, these sweet treats are the cherry on top of a classic diner meal at Jackson Drug. Burgers sourced from the family’s ranch, the Jackson Hole Hereford Ranch, bring authentic meaning to the term farm-to-table. The Jackson community is thrilled to see Jackson Drug return to the Town Square and, with it, original menu items like the egg salad, chicken salad, chili and giant pretzels.
