One of the best ways to experience local culture is through its cuisine. So, to truly experience the best of Fayetteville, you need to eat the best dishes! Food that is locally sourced when possible and never frozen is a trend that continues to grow. Nowhere in Northwest Arkansas is that more apparent than Fayetteville.
Over the past few years, more restaurants have embraced a menu of farm-to-table delicacies that you can feel good about eating. It’s a level of freshness that features Arkansas-grown tomatoes and strawberries, grass-fed beef from nearby farms and a style of cooking that is uniquely Ozark. Here are just a few of the options to try:
ARSAGA’S AT THE DEPOT
Located in the old train freight building, the location is uniquely Fayetteville, just like the food. Enjoy delicious breakfasts, weekend brunch and great coffee. Heads up: Cindy Arsaga is featured in this awesome video about visual arts in Fayetteville.
548 W. Dickson
FARMER’S TABLE CAFE
The menu at Farmer's Table Cafe features locally sourced, organic and homestyle breakfasts, lunches and dinners. They also serve numerous vegan and gluten-free options. Owners Adrienne and Rob Shaunfield are featured in our FREE Visitor’s Guide
1079 S. School
Serving the best local ingredients from farmers across the Ozark region, Mockingbird Kitchen's meals include house-made soups, hot sandwiches and fresh salads. Chef Chrissy Sanderson was included on USA Today’s list “50 States: 50 Female Chefs.”
1466 N. College
Artisan pizzas featuring locally sourced ingredients go great with the local craft beers on tap at Woodstone Pizza. Choose from traditional pizzas or be adventurous. We recommend the Bloomington … no, the K-BBQ — no, you’ve got to try the Late Harvest! Okay, clearly we love everything.
