With both a year-round covered patio that seats 75 and an upstairs dining room overlooking Main Street, Bishop’s on the Square  is a great place to refuel during a visit to the Central Valley.

The restaurant is popular with Merced’s thriving cycling community (just check out the packed bike racks out front), and it's no surprise it attracts the fit as the menu focuses on local, sustainable products. At breakfast, look for crème brulée French toast and locally roasted coffee; at lunch, burgers are the star, with everything from yellowfin tuna to Kobe beef to chicken, turkey, and lamb burgers made from Merced-raised livestock.
