Downtown Dining


Galesburg is lucky to have many great restaurants and bars. Need some good coffee?  For a laid-back, kitschy spot, check out The Beanhive.  For a trendy café atmosphere, head over to Innkeeper's Fresh Roasted Coffee!  Either shop is great for lunch, too...

More lunch, we recommend Cornucopia Natural Market & Deli for a casual eat-in or carry-out option.  Craft Butcher & Deli is another great spot if you are more carnivorous! 


Dinner is tough choice, but we love The Landmark Cafe & Creperie for an intimate dining experience (try their dessert crepes!) Here are some other great options in Galesburg: Iron Spike Brewing Company , The Pizza House , Baked, Budde's Pizza, Coney Island, Masa Sushi Hibachi Steakhouse, Cherry Street Restaurant & Bar.

Many of the options listed above are also bars!  But if you want our recommendation for a great local watering hole, check out The Bar 65, only a short walk away from the theatre!
