Enjoy views of the spectacular desert scenery while dining on artisan pizza, sandwiches, and other delicious goodies. You’ll be so glad you made the journey out to this place!
The tiny village of Blue Diamond in Clark County has long been known for its place in Nevada history. However, few people know it's also home to one spectacular eatery known as Cottonwood Station.
Opened by a couple who has called Blue Diamond their home for over a decade, Cottonwood Station is a place to enjoy fresh and healthy cuisine in the amazingly scenic setting that is the Southern Nevada desert.
The name of the eatery comes from Blue Diamond's original name, back when it acted as a stop on the Old Spanish Trail—a historical trade route that connected the northern settlements of New Mexico to those in Los Angeles and Southern California.
Even the restaurant's building is an important piece of Blue Diamond history. It's comprised of the exact wood from the community's original workshop and garage that dates back to 1942. Cottonwood Station is far from your average eatery. It's a piece of the Blue Diamond spirit.
However, it's not just the region's history that makes this restaurant stand out. The food is simply divine! The menu contains a variety of delicious artisan-style pizzas and paninis.
Indulge in the simple bliss of a freshly made Margherita or Pepperoni pizza. They also boast a Pancetta Fig pizza which contains ricotta and balsamic drizzle, along with a Vegetarian pizza comprised of cheese, spinach, tomatoes, and basil.
You can't go wrong with pizza, but their paninis are just as scrumptious. Choose from Pesto Chicken, Caprese, Grilled Three Cheese, or The Woodworks (bacon, white cheddar, tomato, béchamel.)
It's places like Cottonwood Station that prove that you can always find good food here in Nevada—even in a tiny village like Blue Diamond! A visit to this wonderful eatery is worth the trip alone, so make a lunch trip soon.
