We had the Tues night special...fresh sea bass that was the best I've had in a decade. A lovely salad with handmade poblano dressing, veggies done just right, and a strawberry, chocolate , whipped cream dessert. So good ,! We were so glad we found this treasure, with a real chef, lovely ambiance, cute decor, great service..it's worth going to Galesburg for this...but looking at all the other neat shops downtown, we'll come earlier and explore shops too next time

World class coffee house and roasterie, cafe that also serves breakfast, lunch, and baked goods. Fast casual counter service and drive through.
While visiting family in town, they suggested we go to this great coffee house for breakfast!
( even though our hotel had breakfast) innkeeper was delicious!
We all had quiche, which was heated up after it was in display case. Crust would have been better had it came out of oven !(would have given a 5 had I had crunchy crust.
We had flavored coffee which was wonderful!
We definitely will be back on our next trip!!!

While on a train trip, we had a layover in Galesburg and had a couple of hours to kill so we were walking to an antique mall we had heard about when a local stopped us. Somehow knowing we were from out of town (California)...must have been how we were dressed, he told us about a good restaurant and Uncle Billy's Bakery. We didn't have time for lunch, but we never pass up a good bakery and boy, was it good. We ordered a great selection of cookies, all excellent and reasonably priced and enjoyed them over a cup of coffee. If we are ever in Galesburg again, we will be back.

A happy surprise on a recent trip to Galesburg Illinois! Gourmet pizzas by the slice or by the pie. Delicious crust (I usually prefer thick, but their hand tossed thin crust is divine). Unusual toppings like...potato? Yes, and it's delish. Goat chees and herbs. Num Num. Great little place. Would definitely recommend. I also enjoyed the eclectic décor. Mostly retro with a little modern and a little shabby chic thrown in.
Note: order at the front counter and a friendly staffer will deliver to your table.

Looking for a great lunch spot after picking up our grandson from college in Peoria, Illinois and stopped in this quaint historic area. The homemade soup and salad bar were excellent. The wrap our grandson enjoy delicious. And the cinnamon rolls great and we have a to go box to take home to his mom and dad! A definite place to stop. They are open for dinner, too.

I have been enjoying the ribs at the Ribs Shack for about 40 years. It's a relaxed restaurant where you can lick the sauce off your fingers. I have tried the BBQ chicken but have to say the beef is the best around. Just the right amount of smoke and tomato. Pair the ribs with the slaw or fries and you will have a meal you will keep coming back for for 40 years. Eat in or carry out, it's the best.

We were heading home from Moline and decided to stop in Galesburg for lunch. I remembered about this brewery and decided to check it out for ourselves. Beautiful building, a former fire station, they did a great job fixing it up. The food is good and the beer is great. Staff is wonderful and the bartender is entertaining. Glad we stopped. We will be back.

We stopped on our way out west. Excellent authentic Mexican food. You can tell the owners take pride in their business. Very friendly and giving their patrons extra attention. Would highly recommend!

They have awesome pizza! The prices are great! I have never had a bad experience here. We usually get a medium taco for my husband and I to share and we have leftovers. My children share a medium and also have leftovers...and they are teenagers. Filling, good prices, great service!
