YUM Restaurant Find: The Trails Eatery

September 26, 2018

The Trails Eatery is an adorable little diner serving up some YUM breakfast and lunch options in the San Carlos area. The restaurant first caught my attention several years ago when I discovered it had been featured on the Food Network’s Restaurant Impossible, a show that attempts to save struggling restaurants on the brink of shutting down.

Now, nearly seven years after their episode aired, The Trails Eatery is a popular spot for local families and Cowles Mountain hikers seeking a little post-workout sustenance. I recently found myself in the area and decided to stop in for a lunchtime bite so that I could finally check this one off my list.

I opted for the tuna melt, which I must say, had the perfect ratio of ooey gooey cheesiness to crisp and refreshing tuna salad. I also sampled a portion of their Sin-a-mon Roll Pancakes with Cream Cheese Frosting. Sinful indeed, the decadent pancakes were the perfect texture and confirmed that I must return for breakfast in the very near future.

The restaurant is located at 7389 Jackson Drive in the Keil’s and CVS shopping center. Click here to see their tasty menu!
