It's dinner time. Your family is starving. You don't want to cook. Well....if you live in Parkville, you're in luck! There are so many options for eating out or take out! In this insight, I am going to focus just on the eating establishments available in downtown Parkville. Not only is our downtown picturesque and quaint, but the businesses are all locally owned and operated, for an added bonus. Starting at the top of Main Street, Cafe Des Amis is a fabulous french dining establishment that has been around for a long time. It sits above "Hairs to You" and offers a variety of options for all taste buds. Don't be put off by the french-ness. There is something for everyone and their dining room provides a good opportunity for your kids to practice their table manners. Just down the hill is a more casual Italian option: Frank's. While it has a small footprint, it puts out lots of crowd-pleasing Italian favorites that can be eaten in or carried out. Further down the hill from Frank's is the new River Park Eatery. This is a very kid-friendly space, with its large dining area, lots of TVs, and a welcoming bar and menu that covers the gamut of American cuisine. Lastly, on the east side of Main Street sits Stone Canyon Pizza. This is some of the best pizza in town. They also serve a large variety of sandwiches, soups and entrees. Next time you feel your stomach rumbling, give one of these restaurants a try!
