The Main Inn at the Madonna Inn was constructed in 1960, and when completed included space for two restaurants, a bakery, lounge, event space, and retail shops.
Today guests of the hotel and day visitors can enjoy a meal at the Copper Cafe or the Gold Rush Steakhouse; have a drink at the Silver Bar Cocktail Lounge; pick up a slice of their famous pink champagne cake from the Bakery; find the perfect souvenir or gift at their Gourmet & Wine, Boutique, or Inn Gift Shops; dance the night away on their dance floor; and of course visit their world-famous restrooms!
There are two restaurants, a lounge, and bakery in the Main Inn at the Madonna Inn. Here guests of the hotel and day visitors can have an all American meal at the Copper Cafe, enjoy fine dining options at the Gold Rush Steakhouse, grab a drink and appetizers at the Silver Bar Cocktail Lounge, and bring home a slice of pink champagne cake from the bakery.
Alex Madonna Gold Rush Steakhouse
Guests of the hotel and day visitors can expect a fine dining experience when visiting Alex Madonna’s Gold Rush Steakhouse. Only open for dinner, the steakhouse features several different cuts of steak (all cooked to perfection) alongside chicken, fish, and vegetarian options. Slices of cake from the Bakery are also available to order for dessert, and make for the perfect end to an incredible meal.
Madonna Inn Copper Cafe
From homemade pancakes with real whipped butter and syrup on the breakfast menu to the filet mignon for dinner (not to mention the world famous cakes for dessert!), the Copper Cafe is a perfect way to experience the Madonna Inn without paying the steakhouse prices. The Copper Cafe is also open for breakfast and lunch in addition to dinner, and you can still order slices of the bakery’s world famous cakes!
Silver Bar Cocktail Lounge
The Silver Bar Cocktail Lounge is one of the best places for that pre-dinner drink, weekend cocktail, or nightcap. Not only does the bar have an extensive menu of cocktails, wines, beers, and ciders, they also serve appetizers and desserts alongside their drink menu. From truffle fingerling potatoes to artisan cheese plates (and the entire bakery!), the Silver Bar Cocktail Lounge is the perfect place to grab a drink, some light food, and take in the sights that make up the Madonna Inn.
The Bakery at the Madonna Inn proudly bakes fresh cakes, cream and fruit pies, French and Danish pastries, dinner rolls, specialty breads, and cookies every day! Famous for their pink champagne cake, the bakery is also well known for their German Chocolate and Carrot cake (and Caramel Dutch Apple Pie…), but everything coming out of the Bakery truly is a sweet treat and worth every bite.
Madonna Inn Gift Shop
The Madonna Inn Gift Shop is the only place to find Madonna Inn-branded items. From the famous goblets used in the restaurants to enamel pins, sweatshirts, bathrobes, and even soaps and lotions can be purchased from the gift shop, and help you forever remember your time spent at the inn.
Boutique Gift Shop
The merchandise from the Boutique Gift Shop has been carefully curated by trained stylists, and features both men’s and women’s apparel, jewelry, accessories, and shoes. Personal shopping and assisted shopping services are also available.
Gourmet & Wine Gift Shop
The Gourmet & Wine Shop features specialty items perfect to enhance any meal or special moment. Wines from California’s finest regions, high end chocolates, beautiful flowers, and other delicious bites can be found at the Gourmet & Wine Shop, and bundled into personalized gift baskets or even a picnic lunch!
Madonna Inn Dance Floor
The Venetian Room doubles as an event space and nightly dance floor for guests of the hotel or restaurant, as well as day visitors. Featuring different music every night, guests can boogie to swing, big band, and even salsa music depending on the day! Make sure to check out their Music Schedule so you don’t miss your favorite band or dance style!
World Famous Restrooms
Yes, even the restrooms at the Madonna Inn are something worthwhile to stop and see!
The men’s restroom comes complete with a waterfall in place of a typical urinal, and a vanity constructed from the same rocks found on the property.
The women’s restroom may not have a waterfall, but does have the best lighting and beautiful lounge spaces before returning to your table.
