[ARCHIVED] Downtown is cooking

Belly restaurant in downtown Eugene

This summer, downtown Eugene will experience an influx of new businesses specializing in great food and tasty beverages. In fact, so many new businesses are choosing to locate downtown that it’s safe to say that we’re experiencing a trend - downtown Eugene is becoming a new hotspot for food-lovers.

• Belly recently relocated its rustic European farmhouse soul food to a larger space at 30 E. Broadway. On 5th Street, Belly’s taqueria specializes in casual, flavorful Mexican cuisine.

• By mid-July, Off The Waffle will open a second location in the US Bank Building next to Bagel Sphere, 840 Willamette. Off The Waffle’s second location will continue to offer the famous Liege style waffles and creative menu items.

• Noisette Pastry Kitchen, a European and classic American style bakery will open later this summer in ground floor space in Broadway Place at 200 West Broadway.

• The Barn Light, a sophisticated, comfortable coffeehouse and bar, will also be opening later this summer in the atrium area of the freshly renovated Broadway Commerce Centre building on the southwest corner of Broadway and Willamette.

• Mom’s Pies, the McKenzie River Highway tradition, recently re-opened the family owned business in a new location on 11th and Willamette. Open for lunch, they sell pies whole or by the slice.

All of these businesses (except for Mom’s Pie’s) benefited from City loan programs. The Downtown Revitalization Loan Program (DRLP) is a flexible financing program designed to encourage investments within the Downtown Urban Renewal District that contribute to the economic vibrancy and density goals for downtown.
