Lanesboro is a quaint tourist destination in Southern Minnesota nestled in a deep valley of the Root River.
Popular activities include biking, canoeing & kayaking.
- Pedal Pushers. Breakfast, lunch, & dinner.
- Rhino's. Lunch & dinner
- Old Village Hall Restaurant. Dinner only.
- Riverside on the Root, 109 S. Parkway Ave (downtown). 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.
- Pastry Shoppe, 202 Parkway Ave (downtown, next to the Mane Theater). closes at 4 PM. Good value and taste for pastries and lunch. Seats 25. They also do wonderful catering.
- Chat 'n Chew, 701 Parkway Ave (7 min. walk from downtown). 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.
- 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.
