Lanesboro is a quaint tourist destination in Southern Minnesota nestled in a deep valley of the Root River.
Open for Dinner
- Pedal Pushers (breakfast, lunch, & dinner)
- Rhino's (lunch & dinner)
- Old Village Hall Restaurant (dinner only) website
- Riverside on the Root (lunch & dinner) Casual dining with good-sounding, but bland-tasting, thus over-prized entrees with rushed and slightly grumpy service, role-modeled by the owners. But the location and atmosphere is grand (if you can get a table on the river patio or balcony) and if don't have too high expectations about food quality and service, it's worth a visit [downtown, 109 S. Parkway Ave]
- Pastry Shoppe (closes at 4 PM) A pastry connoisseur's dream come true. Pastry Chef Brett and his capable kitchen staff transform high-quality ingredients into delicious taste explosions. Never has sinning felt so good. Lanesboro's best-kept lunch secret. Incredible value for the money. Seats 25 and he and his crew also do wonderful catering. [downtown, 202 Parkway Ave, next to the Mane Theater]
- Chat 'n Chew (closes at 3 PM) A traditional, old-time breakfast and lunch diner with the charm of fair-priced standard American fare with varying degrees of service quality. [7 min. walk from downtown, 701 Parkway Ave]
- Spud Boy Diner Breakfast and Lunch. Circa 1925 Diner Car refurbished and placed on a small lot on Lanesboro's main street. Great food and excellent coffee. "Booth Seating for Ladies".
Three bars & saloons cater to the needs of the thirsty:
- Root River Saloon
- American Legion
- Parkway Pub
With over 125 beds and over 200 campsites in the community and surrounding areas, Lanesboro invites its visitors to stay more than just a day.
