The river walk, historic neighborhood, plenty of pubs and restaurants, this is as much a local destination as a tourist attraction

This tiny town takes you back to a time almost forgotten with small boutique shops and small local restaurants/bars. We enjoyed a nice meal and wonder through the shops talking to locals which was also enjoyable as most were pleasant and chatty. Relaxing afternoon!

The Village has a lot of history and the shops are just the icing. My favorite for years is the little Soap Box and the new bakery , Baked Bread and Brew, is world class. Go up to Brew Bar for lunch, It's in the original black smiths shop, sit inside or enjoy the patio. Are you hot? Go across... More

The Village is about 3 square blocks of shops, bar and restaurants.The shops start getting busy on the weekends and the bars & grills do a steady business from lunch on. A Touristy kind of place where mostly locals go. Good food and local beers plus the regular fare.

Fun to walk around. Plan to go back when it is warmer. Small shops; good place to find gifts. Parking may be an issue during warm weather.

Went on a Sunday and enjoyed visiting without the local traffic. Plenty to see and do. Would make a great day trip. Kind of like a mini Galena. I would recommend visiting!

Our first stop in the Village is always at Lagomarcino's. This family-run century-old institution has sandwiches with home made bread; home-made pies and ice cream sodas and sundaes to die for. And don't forget the home-made chocolates on your way out (also available online.) Next we head for one of the art shops, jewelry shops with vintage jewelry, original art,... More

The Village of East Davenport has been going under a real change as of late. Filled with quaint shops and bars it is a great place to meander around, a bit like Geneva IL.
