“The Saturday Market is a Eugene staple. The Farmers' Market has beautiful and delicious local produce, as well as cheeses, flowers, meats, honey, etc. The artisans market is a fabulously eccentric mix of all types of handmade goods, from clothing and jewelry to pottery and things you never knew you needed. It's a great place for people-watching. Local food booths and a music stage keep the place buzzing. ”

American Restaurant
“Best bacon in town. Thick and salty and you can order it crispy or regular. They also serve giant mimosas and something called a Contrary Mary, which is a tasty bloody mary with their house-made mix and a good compliment or garnishes. The rest of the food is solid - all day and all night - and the staff have literally become our friends. It's nestled in the Friendly neighborhood (that's where you are, no joke!) and there's great outdoor seating in the front and back for the sunny days. Dog are welcome out front and they will bring them water and lots of love. ”
