Cornbread Cafe in Springfield

I am very excited to announce that your favorite vegan restaurant has opened a second location in the charming historical district in Springfield known as the Washburne District. Their new location will have an emphasis on Louisiana style meals, as well as some old favorites from their original menu. They will also include a full bar, and try their hand as an entertainment venue!

The new location is filled with vintage charm and local art, and the food is everything you would expect from Cornbread Cafe since their appearance on the Food Network made them a national foodie destination. Be sure and visit the website to see the new menu, and updated hours http://cornbreadcafe.com/springfield/

There is a new location for Cornbread Cafe and it is located in the heart of downtown Springfield!

The 5 Best Burgers in Eugene/Springfield

I was a little surprised when I saw the Best of Eugene Weekly article that  boasted the 3 best burgers in town, and none of my favorites made the list. So I decided to create my own list, I would love to hear about your favorite burger in the comment section below!

  1. The Meiji Burger– Under valued because of it’s size the Meiji Burger is my personal favorite. It is served on an English Muffin with Japanese pickles, lettuce, onion, and house-made fries. You can taste the quality of the ingredients they use, including the 100% Organic Grass-fed Angus beef! https://www.izakayameiji.com/#menu

My personal favorite the Meiji Burger!

2. The Chow Burger– They have their meat ground fresh everyday, and also bake their own buns. Not to mention they pay homage to the Simpsons with their original name “Moes”. They infuse their bacon with maple syrup, to make every burger a foodies’ delight. If you are a fan of the Artisan Burger you have to try this place! https://openmenu.com/restaurant/d52f5540-8a01-11e2-823b-00163eeae34c

The Chow Burger uses maple marinated bacon on their burger. You can even order a plate of bacon!

3) The Planktown Burger– I always get the Bacon Irish Cheddar Burger, it comes with an 8 oz patty with bacon, Irish cheddar, tomato, lettuce, pickled onion and creamy horseradish sauce. If you haven’t been to Planktown yet I would make plans to go tonight!  http://planktownbrewing.com/menu.html

Make sure you bring your appetite if you want to tackle the Planktown Burger

4. The Board Burger– Michael Autry the owner of Board Restaurant describes their burger as knee deep cattle beef, aged cheddar, arugula, red onion and chipotle bacon jam on a brioche. Be sure and save room for their potato wedge fries with the house made chipotle ketchup! http://www.boardrestaurant.com/menu/

The Board Burger won the Best Burger in Eugene last year from Yelp users

5. The Cornucopia Burger– This burger could have easily been higher on the list, most of you already know they boast the best burger in Eugene via the Eugene Weekly’s “Best of” readers poll. My favorite burger on their menu is the Jeros Bacon Cheese Burger with crisp bacon, your choice of cheese, red onions, and mayo it is a force to be reckoned with! Visit their menu to see the full list of their famous burgers https://www.cornucopiaeugene.com/menu/#award-winning-burgers-vurgers

The Cornucopia Burger won the “Best of” from the Eugene Weekly this year
