“"11.0" refers to the fact that this is the location of the Palisade Cafe for 11 owners. The new owners, as of 2016, have brought in a few more elevated items that the Cafe has had over the years. I've had mixed experiences here, frankly. Table and bar seating. ”

Restaurant
“Nearly a local institution. The founder recently sold it (in 2017). Menu has largely stayed the same, but said they are no longer open for breakfast. I highly recommend the stromboli. Pick up a bottle of nice red at Colterris and a stromboli, head back to the cottage and enjoy great grub with amazing views! Sandwiches and salads, too. Reliable staple for quick meals.”

Food
“Véraison Vineyard is a lovely wine tasting room in a 100-year old brick home, located in downtown Palisade. The owners give an excellent presentation on how to taste wine, and they grow their own grapes. They also have a beautiful rose garden on site, with 1,400 antique David Austin rose bushes. Check out their Fire Pit Fridays from Memorial Day to October -- delicious wood fired pizza outside in the vineyard.”
