Java Cow Cafe & Bakery Park City

At this small shop, cows rule. The merchandise carries them, and the beverages honor them (try an iced "cow"puccino!). The whole place is bovine-oriented, in fact, including the t-shirts, greeting cards, and gifts. Plus, the entire shop smells like freshly baked waffle cones, so it's far from bad. To fill these crunchy cones, there's an array of yummy ice creams. Among the flavors you'll find are Wowie Cowie, Cowrispy Crunch, and Chocolate Monster Vanilla Swiss Almond Brownie Explosion. Are you man (or cow) enough to handle one?

Park City

As the name indicates, this restaurant's decor and ambience are reminiscent of a cabin, albeit an upscale, well-decorated one. The softly lit space even sports replicas of trees, adding a rustic, whimsical note to the environment. The menu pays tribute to the foods and preparations of the West, featuring mesquite grilled pork tenderloin, rosemary-roasted rack of Colorado lamb, and barbecued Alaskan salmon. You'll also find venison, Angus beef, chicken, pasta, and a selection of vegetarian dishes. The seasonal menu makes the most of what's freshest at the moment, tempting diners with top-notch cuisine that's perfect after a day on the slopes. The adjacent bar offers live music and a wider range of beverages but does require a membership (unlike the restaurant).
