Insider's Guide to Happy Valley/ What the locals won't tell.
SNOW, SNOW, SNOW
BEST PLACE FOR A MILKSHAKE
- The Rathskeller
Few places in Happy Valley are nicer or more accommodating to your furry friend. Patio seating is limited, so get there early for lunch.
- The Autoport
The expansive outside seating is perfect for well-behaved pooches. Large oak trees provide great cover during the heat of the summer.
- Governor's Pub
Located in Bellefonte, the staff is super friendly and the food is pretty great as well. Seating is limited.
- "Dog Wash" at Red Line Speed Shine
Located inside the car wash on Atherton, this facility has the only K9000 Dog wash in the area. Just watch the video on the link.
- The State Theatre
National touring acts, check. Local theatre troops, check. Independent movies, check. The State has it ALL. Sign up for the e-newsletter here.
GREAT OUTSIDE BARS
Great shaded outdoor porch. The sizable front windows open in warm weather, so even if you don't want to sit outside, the outdoors will find you.
- Cafe 210 West
Two outdoor sections: the popular front porch and the larger, secluded back balcony and patio.
Full length windows that open up during warm weather. Comfy outdoor seating right on College Ave.
- Mad Mex
Spacious covered back porch with the best margaritas in town. Best in summer months when the students go home and the locals come out.
- The Autoport
Outside patio is a must during the summer months. Trees keep it cool during the day, and propane heaters and a custom circle firepit chase away the chill on colder nights.
- Gamble Mill
A Bellefonte staple, the Mill is a locally owned micropub with a tasty bar menu. The modest patio sits close to Spring Creek and perfect for intimate conversations.
WHERE CAN I…
- Get a six pack of something different?
Dante's Hop Shop is locally owned with a massize selection of American and International brews. Wegman's also has a great selection.
- Get a dynamite Sunday Brunch?
The eggs benedict at Elk Creek Cafe is heavenly. Enjoy it on Sundays along with a mimosa or in-house crafted brew.
- One of downtown's best secrets, Mad Mex is also a key location for a delicious Sunday Brunch. Fantastic menu and no lines.
