Historic Commercial Street has become a one-stop destination for all things food and drink. This straight stretch of road offers cuisine from all over the globe, so much so that this will be split into two parts! Let’s dive in, shall we?

Lindberg’s Tavern

Lindberg's TavernBetween having killer burgers and running outstanding Sunday brunch specials, Lindberg’s Tavern always brings its A-game to the food scene. My default menu item has always been those tasty burgers, seared in duck fat, provel cheese and their homemade ketchup. The Lindburger is the double, but if you’re hungry, go for the Triple Lindy with three patties. Make plans to venture in on Sundays as they offer a new brunch special each week!

That Lebanese Place

On the hunt for kebabs? Look no further than That Lebanese Place. Their menu includes Baba Ghanoush, falafel, Dolma, soups and hot tea. The meat kebabs that they serve are slow-roasted for 30-plus hours. You can order the chicken shawarma with basmati rice and hummus or grab some of the tender lamb and beef kebabs to enjoy with their garlic sauce, sliced tomatoes and pickles! Don’t forget to save room for dessert. Their selection of baklava will cure your sweet tooth.

Van Gogh’s Eeterie

Van Gogh's Eeterie

For breakfast, lunch, or dinner, there is something for everyone at Van Gogh’s Eeterie! Stop in and order one of their famous Pannenkoeken, the Dutch pancakes. These are 12-inch crepe-style pancakes served with fruit, chocolate, and sprinkles as toppings. If you are more of a savory flavor lover, they have many savory options, including spicy shrimp, smoked sausage, chicken and beef shawarma.

Eurasia Coffee Co.

There is no better spot to sit back and relax with a nice cup of coffee or tea, than Eurasia. They have all your favorite beverages, from cappuccinos and macchiatos to an Americano. But Eurasia offers more than just drinks; their breakfast selection is equally enticing.

Dive into their tempting options such as creamy overnight oats, the flavorful vegetarian Southwest Frittata, or a satisfying bacon breakfast sandwich. And if you’re craving a hearty lunch, look no further than their delicious offerings like a comforting bowl of smoky chili infused with sweet potatoes, peppers, black beans, coffee, and Askinosie cocoa – guaranteed to leave you feeling nourished and satisfied.

Blue Heron Euro Café & Bakery + Farm

Blue Heron Bakery

A bakery creating delicious pastries, coffee, salads, sandwiches, and soups, that not only taste delicious but look like works of art, Blue Heron has been a favorite of mine since before they opened their doors on C-Street. Now, the moment I walk through those double-blue doors, the aroma makes my mouth water!

From irresistible sweet treats like almond croissants and lemon galettes to savory delights such as chorizo, egg, cheddar rolls, spinach, mushroom, egg, and feta rolls, their menu is a culinary delight. Complementing these offerings is a diverse selection of coffee to accompany your breakfast or lunch. Additionally, Blue Heron extends its hospitality beyond its menu, providing enriching baking and cooking classes every week.

Address: 206 E. Commercial St., Springfield
