Eating, Drinking and Entertainment

From mid-May through October, the Kingfield Farmers Market is the place to be on Sunday mornings, having won the City Pages Best Farmers Market award for outstanding quality and variety of vendors. With the quality of food and variety, it should come as no surprise that many top-notch dining options fill one neighborhood.  It can be difficult to choose between the diverse flavors offered between its cafes, bars, and restaurants.

Kingfield astounds the Latin-American cuisine scene with Victor’s 1959 Café transporting diners to the colorful land of Cuba, Café Ena bringing Latin-American flavor with French techniques, and fresh plays on Mexican fare can be found at LaFresca.  Filipino food isn’t always easy to come by but leave it to Kingfield to have that niche covered, too at Apoy. Kingfield’s most raved-about American fare is found at Revival, which has built a reputation for serving some of the finest comfort food in the twin cities.  Plentiful pastries, scones and coffee can be found throughout the neighborhood at Patisserie 46, Royal Grounds Coffee, andFive Watt Coffee.

Kingfield’s originality isn’t just limited to its restaurants and cafes. Antiques, furniture, home goods, and one-of-a-kind treasures await at neighborhood shops Odds‘N’ Ends and The Foundry Home Goods.  Located in the heart of Kingfield, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Park offers activities for all ages and programming year-round, keeping the community spirit alive.
