White Pines Inn, located near Rockford, is home to one of northern Illinois’ landmark restaurants. The home-style cuisine blends perfectly with the log cabin decor. Generous portions of mostly homemade dishes fill the menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner, six days a week. Each Sunday the area’s largest breakfast buffet is offered up with its spread of hearty home cooking from 8am til noon.
Every year the regional Sauk Valley Newspaper runs a contest and every year White Pines wins – Best Buffet bragging rights! During the afternoon and evening on Sundays there’s a special menu with a salad bar and during the summer months it includes outdoor grilling under the adjoining garden canopy along with live music.
