The food and service were great. We had sandwiches, but they also serve a breakfast on Saturday & Sunday mornings. Large area outside to walk around the fort, with a playground along with indoor & outdoor seating area's and a small gift shop.

Knowledgable... More

Fort Vermillion has an amazing atmosphere, a great 2 km trail, minigolf, a play structure and more. The Treehouse cafe inside has wonderful food that is healthy and fresh. There are plenty of treats such as baked goods and ice cream. Eat here!
