If you are looking for a restaurant to celebrate a special occasion, I would definitely recommend Boiling Springs Tavern. The restaurant offers a nice atmosphere, good food and a great wine selection. The dinner entrees are well worth the money, and the candle-lit dining room adds to the cozy ambiance. The historic 1832 building is located across the street from Children’s Lake, providing the perfect opportunity to take a leisurely stroll around the lake before or after dinner.

Looking for something a little less formal? Look no further than Caffe 101, located across the street from Boiling Springs Tavern. The café serves breakfast, lunch and dinner but I highly suggest stopping by for a leisurely breakfast. The large breakfast menu offers such goodies as pancakes, French toast, oatmeal, eggs and waffles. Plus they have good coffee and a very friendly atmosphere in a nicely decorated space.

Whether you choose a formal dinner or an informal breakfast, you can’t go wrong with these two choices in Boiling Springs.
