Plan a South Siskiyou Foodie Trip

I love planning my trips to South Siskiyou around food. Experiencing good food is a top priority in my everyday life, and it’s even more important when I travel. If I eat well, I have more energy, and I’m more likely to go on adventures while visiting a new place. Plus, eating out is an excellent opportunity to meet locals.

Below you’ll find a list of some of my favorite restaurants in South Siskiyou. Also, I included a few places that are on my spring and summer adventure lists. Please note, this post isn’t a comprehensive guide to all the restaurants in South Siskiyou. Instead, use the post as a starting point to explore South Siskiyou’s foodie scene.

With that, let’s begin!

Dunsmuir, CA

Downtown Dunsmuir is a cute and welcoming community. When I’m in town, I love stopping at The Wheelhouse for a cup of locally roasted Northbound Coffee and a good meal. One of my favorite dishes at The Wheelhouse is “The Main-Line.” It comes with eggs, hash browns, and two pieces of toast topped with avocado. The house-made sausage compliments the meal nicely. Also, my mom loves the yogurt dish. It’s paired with seasonal fruit and house-made granola.

The Dough Hook is a bakery that’s next to The Wheelhouse, and I love it. I can’t resist their delicious cinnamon rolls, and I usually get one for the road.

Another excellent place to savor coffee, sticky buns, a delicious burger, and other good eats is Yaks. Read more about my experience at Yaks here.

Finally, I love eating at Café Maddalena. The restaurant is small and beautiful. The natural wood paneling on the walls is gorgeous, and various windows bring in the natural light. The lighting makes the atmosphere in the café cozy;, especially on winter evenings. I’m planning on visiting Siskiyou soon and checked out Café Maddalena’s Spring 2019 menu, and it looks delectable. I can’t wait to eat the Wild Alaskan Halibut. The chef pairs the halibut with “asparagus, peas, creamed potatoes, and a chive beurre blanc sauce.”

Mt. Shasta, CA

Like Dunsmuir, Mt. Shasta is a welcoming community. When I’m in town, I enjoy visiting crystal shops, recharging at Sisson Meadows, and going to Seven Suns Coffee & Café or Mount Shasta Pastry. Both establishments serve good coffee and offer delicious meals like omelets, breakfast burritos, and sweet treats like cookies and scones.

If I’m in the mood for a tasty brunch, lunch, or dinner, I usually go to Lilys. I love their Brussel Sprout Brunch Salad, burgers, and their garlic fries are fabulous. The “Wedge” salad is another one of my favorite dishes. The salad is topped with tomatoes, bacon, boiled eggs, blue cheese crumbles, and blue cheese dressing. It’s rich and delightful! Plus, Lilys has a relaxed vibe. It’s a lovely place to go on a date night.

McCloud, CA 

On a recent trip to McCloud, I savored a slice of homemade berry pie at the Axe & Rose Public House, and I chatted with a group of women who were seated at a table adjacent to mine. One of the ladies shared a little bit of the building’s history with me. In the 1930s, the building was a cafeteria for lumber mill workers and later it was a dance hall. The building’s architecture and wooden beams are beautiful! Stop by the Axe & Rose for a slice of pie and try their new summer menu items like the gluten-free mushroom pizza, a vegetarian Beyond Burger, or the caprese salad.

On my next visit to McCloud, I’m looking forward to patronizing the McCloud Meat Market & Tavern because two friends recommended the restaurant. I’ve heard great things about their ribeye, the short rib street tacos, and their wine selection. Explore the menu here.

Have a fun foodie weekend in Siskiyou!
