But you’re missing out! There are plenty of independent restaurants in Dubuque in the Downtown Area that are well worth visiting! Here are some of my favourites (recommended for choice and quality of food and good service)!Continue reading “10 Best Restaurants in Dubuque Iowa (Recommended By A Local)!”
I’m a sucker when it comes to street art, I wrote a previous post on some of the street art locations in Camden, London! In the American Midwest, Dubuque Iowa has EXPLODED with colourful murals! There are several pieces scattered across Downtown Dubuque, but the majority are in a 4 block area between Locust St, Main St and 1st St to 4th St. Here’s are some Dubuque murals you can expect to see!
The Dubuque Farmers’ Market first opened in 1858 and is the oldest in Iowa (after all, Dubuque is #WhereIowaStarted)! The ‘Summer’ Market is open every Saturday from the beginning of May to the end of October between 7am – 12pm. Currently the Market is located mainly on Iowa Street and spreads out down 11th, 12th and 13th Street. Since it began, it has always been in or around the Dubuque City Hall!Continue reading “Supporting Local Businesses at the Dubuque Farmers Market – Iowa”
When I moved to America I thought I’d never get to have a British cream tea ever again. Then Dubuque decided to throw out one better, a FULL English Afternoon Tea experience at the Inspire Cafe in the historic Millwork District! The Afternoon Tea tradition dates back to the 1800s. They usually include: a pot of tea, finger sandwiches, cake and scones (cream teas are smaller and only have scones and tea). When my American family came over for our wedding in the UK, we took them to a tea room for an English Cream Tea and we even served it at our wedding reception!
