In between a fun-filled day of exploring Gardiner’s myriad treasures, stop into local hotspot Café Mio for some fresh nosh. Take a load off, grab one of the cozy seats — our favorite spot is the pillow-filled booth by the window — and enjoy dishes created by Chef/Owner Michael Bernardo, who uses locally sourced ingredients and purveyors to create farm-to-table fare. Diners flock to the charming eatery for the corned beef hash breakfast and the nine-ounce Hereford burger — and don’t miss out on the hand-cut fries. Dine alfresco while sipping on one of its house iced teas. Open for breakfast, lunch, and Sunday brunch.
