Stecoah Diner

11.9 Miles from Fontana Village

For years this place was known as "Tooties Cafe", Stecoahs only resturant with some of the best food in Western NC. After years of great food and music entertainment, Tooties went out of buisness. A few years later the resturant was re-opened by three sisters known as Della Jordan, Kathy Cody and Teresa Carpenter and is now known as Stecoah Diner. Although Stecoah Diner does not have the music entertainment that Tooties had, it is still one of the best resturants to find great food in Western NC.

The Hub of Western NC

20.8 Miles from Fontana Village

Established in 2013. We thought a 1950s service station themed coffee and sandwich shop would be the perfect atmosphere for the road weary Dragon slayer or the adventurous people that just crossed up on over 5000 feet on the Cherohala Skyway or Blue Ridge Parkway. With plenty of covered bike parking and a large outdoor covered eating area over looking the river, its a perfect spot to kick of your ride with fresh locally roasted coffee or to take a break from the road for some BBQ or a hot pressed sandwich. Come get your grub at The Hub!
