“Why didn't I find it sooner?”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We bumped into some friends who invited us to LFC. What a great find! Breakfast was incredible and service was excellent. Definitely will make this a must stop for all future trips to ES.

“Eureka! Wonderful food!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

I took my parents to Eureka Springs for the day and not having been here in 18 years, was not sure about where to eat. Just happened on the Local Flavor Cafe and what a find. It really doesn't look like much from outside but appearances can be deceptive. Menu very varied and eclectic, food fresh and made from scratch (mango salsa delicious) and service friendly and efficient. We sat outside on the balcony as it was a very warm day. Tried the Peach sangria that was their special drink and it was refreshing, not too sweek and filled with slices of fresh peaches.

Try the fish tacos. Bread pudding in bourbon sauce was a treat also but portions are large so one is enough for 2 people. Would definitely eat here again.

“we drive an hour to eat here once a month! it's that GOOD!”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

excellent service, great location in downtown eureka, awesome menu. we eat here on every visit to eureka. don't miss this one. not a burger and fries place, but an upscale place....not that you need to dress-up or expect high prices. just wear jeans and pay $12-25 per entree. family friendly...can do reservations otherwise, expect to wait. it's that good and the locals REALLY do eat there!

“Not so hot!”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

This restaurant came highly recommended. However, if you want a steak prepared any way besides rare, you'll have to eat some place else. After two attempts at cooking it, we gave up and ate a mostly rare steak. Service was so-so....certainly not attentive or particularly courteous.

“Wonderful culinary experience”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

This was hands down the best place to eat in Eureka Springs.
Everyone enjoyed their meal. Nice ambiance with outdoor patio dining. The creme brulee at the end of the meal was perfect.
