    Reflection Lake Cafe: hot chocolate with The Mountain

    D enjoys some hot chocolate with The Mountain

    Mount Rainer National Park is only a couple hours from two major cities but right in the vicinity there isn't much. The gateway towns are very limited and a bit of the drive from the interior of the park. For that reason, it makes sense to bring all supplies with you. While the campgrounds were great places to hang out and eat, we found it more convenient to often eat some of our meals on the fly. When you are getting up early to get the best photos, you don't have time to make up a pancake breakfast. One of the best spots was at Reflection Lake.

    Favorite Dish: We had eaten a couple cereal bars on our way but after taking some photos we were in the mood for something warm to drink and a little more food. It was easy to pull out the stove and make up hot chocolate. With Rainier in a mirror before us, it would be tough to find a restaurant with a better view at any price.

    National Park Inn: Rustic Dining

    by Chinacat1969 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    The feel of the lodge was totally Northwest. We settled in the rustic dining room and ordered basic dishes such as beer battered fish sandwiches and chile. While we waited for our meals, we read the placemat and learned what to do if we saw a bear or mountain lion. Tip - make yourself look big.

    Favorite Dish: Lunch is family friendly and afterwards, you can get take out icecream.

    Paradise Visitor Center

    Food is available at the Paradise Visitor's Center. There is a small restaurant serving burgers and other sandwiches. It was actually pretty good.
