Edible Iowa in Dubuque County

No, you don’t have to actually EAT Iowa but eating in Iowa is getting better everyday and Edible Iowa River Valley magazine often offers proof of this. Here’s some tips from the latest issue:

– In Dyersville, it recommends Joe’s Place for good ol American food (burgers, fries,wraps) AND a fresh Thai buffet “rumored to be excellent.” who’d a thunk it? Next up, visit Groovy Grounds, the hipster coffee joint in town.  good pastries too.  and then there’s The English Pub which word tell has a killer Bloody Mary.

– Also in Eastern Iowa’s Dubuque County: Park Farm Winery in Bankston, likened to Tuscany w/gorgeous building and grounds.

– In Dubuque, Breitbach’s Farmers Market Food Store is the place to go and I’m guessing it’s somehow related to the famous restaurant in nearby Balltown that has twice burned down and been rebuilt recently. Good restaurants there: L. May and Pepper Sprout (fanciest) and Manna Java for pizza.

All duly noted for my next visit to my favorite part of Iowa.
