The Creekside Cellars is an informal Italian restaurant and winery in downtown Evergreen. The wines, of which several have earned awards, come from its own small vineyard in Palisade, Colorado. Locals like to come here and order a large antipasto, or a cheese board, and a bottle of wine just to relax.
The menu is soup, salads and a wide variety of paninis, which are large, so just half is usually sufficient, especially if accompanied with a cup of zuppa. Try the Italian sausage panini with roasted red peppers, provolone cheese and marinara sauce.
In the summertime, try to get a table on the patio overlooking the rushing stream.
