Mockingbird Kitchen in Fayetteville, which celebrates its second anniversary this month, serves new American cuisine and is regularly listed among the best restaurants in Northwest Arkansas.

Though Italian by birth, the pizza has certainly become a staple of American cuisine, and Fayetteville offers a plethora of choices when it comes to great pizza restaurants.

It’s a handheld thing of beauty, the sandwich. Although originally a British finger food, over time the sandwich has become a staple of American cuisine. What was usually thought of as a lunchtime food has found its way into the day’s other meals — and we’re okay with that!

Within two slices of bread is typically meat, cheese and vegetables, but sandwiches have become as diverse as the people who enjoy them. With all the fun things to do in Fayetteville and Northwest Arkansas, grabbing some food in between attractions and activities is a smart move.

Nothing is better on vacation than sleeping in and then taking in a leisurely breakfast. With so much to do in Fayetteville, you’ll want to be sure you’re charged up before you explore.
