Cool Moose Café

Good Food, Laid Back Environ – Click for more details

We like this place not just because of the food but because of the dress code.  It seems to imply that anything goes here (“Bring us your thirst and hunger in any attire that you like”) so if you want to come wearing nothing but a Viking hat, bikini and combat boots that’ll work (you might want to confirm this with them beforehand though just in case we misinterpreted their dress code policy).  If your into suits and neckwear that’s ok too.  You see, over yonder way at the Cool Moose Café its all about the food, its so good that you probably wouldn’t notice if the people sitting next to you were dressed like goblins anyway.

Come one, come all, check out the website for a full menu, hours of operation and driving directions.
