  • Fairfield has more restaurants per capita than San Francisco, so be ready to see more Thai and Indian restaurants than your Iowan local diners.
  • The Hy-Vee Deli is incredible. Try their Jello-Macaroni Salad.

Drink[edit][add listing]

  • A lot of bars. The only one not filled with 40 year-old truckers is probably Vivos.
  • Thousands of coffee shops, be sure to check out Cafe Paradiso in the Broadway building for the best coffee in town. Plus they have live music and you can draw on the tables!
  • Revelations cafe is another good place to stop by, with tasty Mocha Java Milkshakes and the best brick oven pizza around. Not to mention the thousands of books available for your perusal.
