    If you're considering getting anything vaguely Mexican, I definitely wouldn't. The rice and beans were woefully under seasoned, and the main dish is covered in sauce to cover up the food.

    The jalapeño cheddar cornbread is amazing, but everything else was either average or sub par. Our sides were unseasoned and boring.

    A pioneer of the local locavore movement, Eastside Cafe has long been a byword for quality dining. The large herb and vegetable garden in back makes for fantastic fresh plates.

    The beef and goat cheese enchiladas were great, but could have used one more on the plate, plus a little more goat cheese.

    The food here is always fresh and delicious but can be a little pricey. If you're pinching pennies grab a blue plate special or a bowl of soup.

    The food was fine. Too much whipped cream on the Belgian waffle for my taste. The major drawback was waiting for the food and then the check. If you're not in a hurry, things will be fine.

    Lots of great food from their onsite garden. Also, if the acorn squash is available, don't hesitate to get it. It's the cat's pajamas.

    Drive by to check out the owners HausBar Farms (about a five minute drive away), and there you will see where the real majority of the eggs and produce come from.

    This East side spot features their own vegetables, herbs and flowers as much as possible — and has been doing so for the almost the past 30 years. A great place to take your parents. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    The farm is literally a step from the table at this longtime favorite. Choose a spot in the garden room near the new henhouse, which provides eggs for the "yard egg" French toast.
