Get your mojo goin’ at the Mean Bean Coffehouse. If your morning drug is caffeine, don’t miss out on The Mean Bean. A great meeting place to discuss the days adventures (and get that little kick to get up Angel’s Landing!) A favorite gathering place for locals-you are sure to experience the flavor and flair of Springdale here—colorful personalities, lively conversations, ass-kickin’ lattes, and perhaps, a quick witty one-liner from “Mean Joe Bean” himself. On your way to the park, pick up snacks at Sol Foods Market which is just outside the south entrance. They have a great variety of snacks, treats, and drinks to keep you well-fueled all day long. Have fun in the park!


Eats and Treats

After an exciting and tiring day of exploring the park, it’s now time to relax and enjoy the evening, and most importantly EAT! Springdale is small, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in the quality of its restaurants and shops.

The Bit & Spur offers a fun saloon atmosphere as well as a nice indoor and patio setting to enjoy a great Mexican influenced dinner. If you’re here at the right time this is also a great place for live music.

Flanigan’s Inn houses The Spotted Dog Café, a very nice dining atmosphere and excellent food. (It also has a scenic porch set under the cliffs of Zion to enjoy a beautiful and yummy breakfast—check out the French Toast!)

Head to The Pizza & Noodle with your family to enjoy a wide variety of delicious gourmet pizzas. Be sure to save room for dessert!—walk next door to The Zion Park Deli and grab an ice cream cone or sundae. (Mmmm…Moosetracks!) If your dogs aren’t barking too painfully yet, take an after-dinner stroll along Zion Park Boulevard and check out Springdale’s unique gift shops and amazing art galleries
