Where the Locals Go for Great Food in Canaan Valley

Oct 1, 2018

The following restaurants are truly where the locals go for great food in the Canaan Valley area. In no particular order, we wanted to give you five great insights into local eats!

TipTop

This coffee-shop and eatery with big city vibes serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee and drinks. An awesome mix of industrial, wood, and special unicorn-décor in the bathroom gives this bistro a relaxed and funky vibe.

With meatloaf, yam brownies, and burger nights, you can tell that TipTop is not your typical coffee shop. Obviously, try the coffee, lattes, and cold brews here but don’t be afraid to try their other custom items!

 

Sirianni’s Café

This rustic and cozy sit-down café is located in a soft green building on the corner of the main street in Davis, WV and often has wait time during peak seasons. That’s ok, though, because this menu is worth it! This unique café is West Virginia through and through with local history on the walls and the “flying WV” adorning many of the surfaces.

The menu has many house-made options such as a custom garlic salad dressing and a marinara sauce available for purchase by the pint. Siranni’s is known for their pizza: build your own with an exhaustive list of toppings or try a house specialty “Artery Clogger” or “Ellie Mae’s Big Breasted BBQ Chicken” pizza. Opened in 1988, Sirianni’s is a long-standing community favorite. Note: Siranni’s does not accept credit cards so be sure to bring your cash or checks.

 

Purple Fiddle

The Purple Fiddle is what you get when you combine a love for live music with a friendly atmosphere and a need for tasty food and drinks. This hot spot is located in a spacious brick building in the previous DePollo General Store in quaint Thomas, WV.

A mostly-acoustic music venue, The Purple Fiddle prides itself on being a family-friendly community gathering place to responsibly share a craft beer with good friends. The live music shows are booked well in advance and, The Fiddle, as it is affectionately called, turns into a standing-room only party nearly every Friday and Saturday evening at 8:30pm.

This is, afterall, a blog about the best food in the area so we can’t forget to mention the specialty deli-type items: A Wild Turkey or World Peace wrap with an appetizer of homemade hummus is a great lunch or dinner option before the music.

 

The Ice Cream Shop

The Ice Cream Shop is in downtown Davis, WV along the main street through town (Route 32). This rustic spot has exposed wood décor and an antique-feel seating area. They also have a cute swirl logo that they use on their menu to explain each of the sizes of their soft serve ice cream.

You can’t go wrong with a sweet banana split, pumpkin sundae or generously sized Flavor Burst cone. This shop is seasonal: typically open May through October.

 

Hellbender Burritos

Are you REALLY hungry? This unassuming joint has a low-key atmosphere: a lot of woodwork and cool music playing in the background to complement the selection of really big burritos. This small-ish restaurant often has a wait but with at least 10 unique West-Virginia inspired meal-size burritos, there is something for everyone. The “Hellbender”, “Treehugger” or the “Face Plant” are awesome choices that take over the plate. Good luck eating it all in one sitting.

Other food options are a variety of tacos, queso and chips and homemade soups. Just so you know: Hellbenders requests using only one credit card per order, does not split checks and are open Wednesday through Sunday.

YUM!
