As you drive into Harpers Ferry on Washington Street, on your right you’ll see a charming little stone restaurant—the Country Cafe. It’s open from 7:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. every day except Monday and is a great place to stop for breakfast or lunch. With delicious omelets and breakfast sandwiches, it is a go-to spot for locals and tourists alike. Their fresh donuts are made to order and topped with vanilla, chocolate, peanut butter, or mint glazes that go well with a cup of Black Dog coffee.

If you happen by at lunch, you are in for a treat of down-home cooking. Their spinach salad is topped with cheddar cheese, bacon, red onion, and hard-boiled eggs and covered in a delicious house buttermilk dressing. They claim to have the best hamburger in town, but their pulled pork barbecue sandwich and their foot-long hot dogs that are freshly made for them by Holsinger’s Meat Market are very popular. You can get your hot dog in traditional West Virginia-style, Chicago-style, or topped with bacon and cheddar cheese. No matter what you choose to eat at lunch, you’ll want to round out your meal with a hand-dipped shake or root beer float. 1715 Washington Street 304.535.2327, country-cafe.com
