Montclair Egg Shop: Montclair Egg Shop is a cute little local diner that predates the neighborhood. Ok not really, but this place has been around forever.

Lake Temescal: Okay, so Lake Temescal is technically in Upper Rockridge, but deserves a mention here. A lovely regional park and neighborhood favorite for an afternoon stroll or a BBQ with friends. The historic indoor/outdoor Beach House facility is popular for weddings, parties, corporate events, etc., and catering is available. The setting is casual to elegant with a panoramic view of the lake.

Taps and Takeout: Taps and Takeout is a cozy neighborhood favorite on the Thornhill side. Young, hip owner Joe offers serves solid brews and makes a mean burger. Drop in, grab a quick meal to take out or settle down for a more relaxed experience. This joint is definitely a local family hangout favorite.
