5th Street restaurants will satisfy your fancy

Eugene’s Historic 5th Street Public Market is one of the city’s shopping hotspots — but where should you dine after a long day of shopping? There are a few restaurants that have the community talking — and [email protected]@ugh     jonathan: [email protected]@

In Marche, a charming French-based restaurant located in the market, you might forget you’re in Eugene with the wood-fired oven, bar, private dining room and outdoor patio covered in umbrellas and awnings. Soups, salads, pizza, sandwiches and more are on the menu, and you can grab breakfast on the weekends from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The restaurant features locally grown food, and their menu evolves with the seasons.

Sushi-lovers, on the other hand, will love Pure, a Japanese bistro and sake bar, which is also located in the market. The sushi here is high-quality, so get there at the right time to enjoy it. Pure is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m and 5 p.m to 9:30 p.m.

Located across 5th Street from the market, try Steelhead Brewery for a restaurant with a menu for everyone and where you can get anything from a great burger to pizza. Drop in for their late night menu from 9:30 to close or for a weekend breakfast from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

For amazing food at a great price, Belly Taqueria on 291 E. 5th Ave. is where you want to head. It’s a new branch from the European soul food restaurant Belly, where you can get a meal anywhere from $3 to $8.

No matter what food you crave, 5th Street restaurants satisfy.
