Boetje’s Mustard is a locally made with an Old World Dutch recipe. It has been stone ground and wood-aged since 1889 in Rock Island, Illinois. The recipe hasn’t changed, and for the foreseeable future, it won’t. I was recently fortunate enough to get a tour of the facility and see how and where one of the most famous products from the Quad Cities Area is made.
Jimmy’s Pancake House in both Moline, Illinois, and Bettendorf, Iowa, are family owned restaurants where “everything is made to order with fresh, quality ingredients using Jimmy’s perfected recipes.” My artists breakfast group likes to go monthly to the Moline location to enjoy lively conversation, new idea exchanges, and the delicious food.
Easter is coming up (April 1). If you are looking for brunch locations in the Quad Cities, check out one of these places for reservations.
