One of my favorite places was this little shopping center right by the Idyllwild monument, which houses the “Idyll Awhile Wine Shop & Bistro. This little shoppe offers a modest selection of wines, but not in the sweet wine area, which is what I like. The two "sweet" wines that they do have were just okay. BEWARE there is a $5 corkage fee on ALL bottles, but they do offer wine tasting deals.* For non-wine lovers, they have specialty beers.
What we really enjoyed here is the atmosphere and the FLATBREAD. We tried 4 different flatbread combinations: Fontina & Goat Cheese with Fresh Chives & Rosemary Ham; Pesto Chicken; Olive Tapenade w/Swiss Cheese; & Fig compote w/ Asiago Cheese & Prosciutto.(In order from favorite to least.) The Fontina Flatbread combination is a MUST TRY!! YUMMY YUMMY
We were here on Monday 8/12/13 and on this day they open from 3-8p.m. We had an opportunity to engage in a nice conversation with the owner. Nice guy.
Overall: A nice place to have a drink while unwinding.
