Good eating in Golden

I will be driving to Golden, BC this week and wondering if anyone has a suggestion for a nice dinner. I like most foods.

  1. In Golden, we stop in town at the White Wolf. Great little bistro.

    If you stop earlier, in Field, there is a place called Truffle Pig Bistro. Also superb.

      Thank you. I'm actually going from west to east so will perhaps stop there the next morning. Are they open for breakfast? I should have said 'driving through Golden'.

        I am not 100% sure..... so I dont want you to tell you something totally wrong :)

        Heres the website for Truffle Pigs:

        And I am sorry, I couldnt find much info on the other one... so here is a trip advisor link:

        Hope that helps!

          I did have breakfast at Truffle Pigs. OMG! It was fabulous. All organic and included a lovely pork chop, homemade baked beans, 2 eggs, bagel and coffee for $13. View of the river. Next time I will also stay at their inn.

            do they have a patio? i'm heading to the okanagan in August and was planning a lunch stop at truffle pigs, but i'll have my dog with me so, i'm hoping for a patio to tie him to while i have a lovely lunch - it will be too hot to leave him in the car, which means A&W in golden on the way through......

            1. re: pants

              Yes, they have a lovely patio with a view toward the river and mountains ( um, I guess the mountains are all around! Isn't it wonderful.)

    2. If you're in Golden for the evening and don't mind a bit of a drive, the Eagle's Eye at the top of the gondola at Kicking Horse is nice and has a great view if the weather cooperates. Looks like they have a dinner and concert event on the 27th too.

        Decided to forego the drive up the mountain considering I would have a glass of wine! Thanks.

      2. I've heard good things about Eleven 22, but have never been there myself:

          Wow, thanks guys! I wish I was spending more time.

            I did enjoy Eleven 22. The food was wonderful and service efficient and cordial. Lovely atmosphere.

          2. Any updates on this OP? We'll be in Golden for a couple of nights this summer with our two kids (7 &4) and looking for grocery store options as well as lunch/dinner suggestions.
