Springfield Gets a Second Dunkin' 

If you’ve ever found yourself on the east side of Springfield craving some Dunkin' coffee, you’re in luck. A second Dunkin' location is set to open on Glenstone just north of Sunshine before the end of the year. Hopefully that means that the lines at the South Campbell location will go down a bit but if Springfield’s coffee craze is anything like it’s chicken craze, the lines will be just as long no matter where you go!

Springfield's Metro Eats Farmers Market is Open

Just in time for summer, Metro Eats food park has entered its first phase of opening. Metro Eats’ weekend farmers market launched last weekend and is looking forward to another busy weekend ahead. Owner Christina Shellhart says 50 vendors have signed on for the Saturday/Sunday market, including local favorites like Murphy’s Orchard, Reborn Candles, and Fassnight Creek Farms. Eventually, the Metro Eats complex will include permanent food stalls, outdoor recreation and more.

Chameleon Cuisine Goes Brick and Mortar

Since the original Aviary lcoation closed early last year, the airy dining space at the corner of Walnut Street and Jefferson Avenue has sat quietly waiting for a brave restauranteur to bring it back to life. This Friday is the day that finally happens. Chameleon Cuisine, the bright and bold food truck that can usually be spotted at the intersection of South Campbell and Primrose, is stepping up and opening its first brick and mortar location. The menu will reflect the menu of the food truck with offerings like burgers, wings and tacos.

Bourbon and Beale Turns 1

Bourbon and Beale, the New Orelans and Memphis-style cajun and barbecue restaurant on Glenstone, is celebrating one year of business this weekend. After opening mid-pandemic, we'd say the one-year mark is definitely worth a celebration. Head to Bourbon and Beale this Friday and Saturday for an outdoor crawfish boil and live music entertainment put on by the Missouri Jazz Orchestra.
