Top 7 Restaurants & Cafes Foodies Need to Try in Bentonville Arkansas

Hi! We’re Candy and Crystal. We’re sisters who grew up as military brats and spent the first half of our lives in Japan. The majority of our family resides in Japan, but we ventured out and have spent the second half of our lives mainly in the United States. We both love traveling and have always documented our travels, so we decided it was time to share our travel experiences with the rest of the world.

Bentonville's food scene has been emerging with top-notch restaurants in the last few years. They have award-winning dishes combined with southern hospitality and the town is quickly becoming a hot spot for foodies. Bentonville is best known for being the home base of Walmart and with the growing rise of tourism and business travel, visitors are starting to take notice of these impressive restaurants.

1 Pressroom

Pressroom is located right in Bentonville Square and it was one of the first restaurants I stopped by on my first visit to Bentonville. I was very impressed with their cool ambience and hip vibe. It opened in 2011 and is still popular with the locals; especially for brunch. We recently tried their brunch menu and understood why the restaurant was full within minutes of opening their doors. Their beautiful plated dishes like the avocado toast and chicken & waffles were excellent. We loved all their colorful, tasty dishes.

2 Tusk & Trotter

Hands down, Tusk & Trotter had the best dessert in town. The "Trot on Over Here" made with sticky toffee pudding cake is baked with brandy soaked dates and topped with butterscotch and maple bacon ice cream. We still have cravings for this dish and wish we could have it shipped to our home. It's no surprise this dessert was voted best bacon dish by Southern Living Magazine. 

We had a variety of mouth-watering dishes and really appreciated the creativity in their Bloody Marys. They craft create "Bloody Mary Flights" with interesting flavors like the Bacon Mary, Tequila Lime and Wasabi. They also
