Walking into the Side Door feels like you’ve stepped into a European cafe that’s also a wine bar and shop with a selection of more than 300 bottles. It’s located at The Village at Mammoth and serves up paninis, fondue, and tapas, although we’re quite partial to the dessert crêpes with options like apple pie, which is stuffed with apples, cinnamon, and caramel. Choose from a long wine and beer list, or try one of Side Door’s cocktails, like the Rattlesnake, a blend of double rye whiskey and Little Green Monster, a 124-proof absinthe from the nearby Shelter Distilling. The cozy outdoor patio is heated and our favorite spot to take in all of the Village action. An added bonus: it’s dog-friendly.
