During the 2019 Flood in Davenport, Iowa, our family like many others in the Quad Cities headed towards the wettest places. We found other Quad Citizens supporting the businesses near the flooded streets. Our family safely checked out the flood from the downtown Davenport Skybridge and then headed to a Quad Cities local favorite: Antonella’s Ristorante.

392 Caffe has opened up its second brick and mortar location in downtown Davenport at 502 W. 3rd Street. The original coffee shop is in Clinton, Iowa, and currently they also have a “pop-up location” inside of Baked Beer & Bread Co. in the Village of East Davenport. Though the Davenport location is new, the coffee shop already has a cult-like following.
The Tangled Wood is now open in Bettendorf, Iowa, at 3636 Tangle Wood Road. The restaurant is the rebranded former Governor’s Pub and Grill, a 43-year old establishment that was beloved to many in the area.
As a Quad Cities transplant I didn’t grow up on Quad Cities-style pizza, but over the past 20 years I’ve become a big fan. As much as I love a good Chicago deep dish or a Brooklyn/New York wood-fired thin crust, there is nothing like a taco pizza from Harris Pizza when you’re craving the best!
What makes a pizza a Quad Cities-style pizza? The cut, the way it’s put together, the sauce, the crust, the sausage, and the kind.
Cool Beanz Coffeehouse is located in the College Hill District in Rock Island, Illinois, at 1325 30th Street. It is a locally-owned, independently-run coffee shop but has so much more to offer. The shop serves fresh-brewed coffee, made-to-order espresso drinks, and a nice selection of teas and smoothies, with seasonal items available. You can also purchase coffee and tea by the bag for at-home consumption, as well as a few offered items to help you brew what you buy.
Looking for a fine place to dine and drink? I suggest Fresh Eatery & Wine Bar in Downtown Moline. Moline is becoming the place to go for locally innovative restaurants and drink establishments. Recently my friends and I attended a production at The Black Box Theatre. Since Fresh is only a few block from the theatre we decided to try dinner there before the show.
Have you ever had a night out on the town and were in need of a late-night snack? Or just have cravings in the wee hours for something other than the typical fast-food chain? I highly recommend checking out The Breakroom in downtown Davenport, Iowa.
Backyard Bowl & Abides Bar and Grill is now open at 2020 1st St. W. in Milan, Illinois, located where the old Milan Lanes was once housed. It has been upgraded in a lot of ways that make this a nice destination for all ages for a fun night out!
