  Bambino's Cafe



According to local lore, the original use of the building that is currently occupied by Bambino's was that of a corner grocery serving the surrounding neighborhood. The store was built during the 1930s at a time when reliance on cars for was not as prevalent as it is now. Like most everywhere else in the United States, Springfield has suffered from the disquietude of sprawling auto-oriented development that has left many craving a new urbanism that reflects the unique situation that is Bambino's. Whether you walk, bike or drive here, you will be able to relax in a place that seems off the beaten path but still very much in the midst of it all.




In our family, traditional Mexican food meant more than sustenance; it meant time spent with loved ones. It meant homemade enchiladas and fried tacos for every birthday. Tamales on Christmas. And while we enjoyed these foods throughout the year, special occasions meant they were prepared with more time, more care. Every day, Maria’s Mexican Restaurant continues our family tradition of bringing families and friends together over meticulously authentic Mexican food. Maria’s began as a carryout only establishment in a 7-foot wide storefront on Walnut Street in 1997. We were among the first restaurants to open downtown when the effort to revitalize the area began and our move to 406 South Avenue in 2001 gave us the privilege of sharing our family recipes with our customers in a comfortable dining room.

  Moxie Cinema
    The Moxie is Springfield's coolest, smallest, most awesomest independent movie theater. For your convenience, we're located right downtown where all the fun stuff happens.
  Tea Bar and Bites


In January of 2004, Tea Bar and Bites opened its cafe doors in the Rountree area neighborhood. We offer both savory lunch choices as well as delectable desserts baked every day in house. Enjoy lunch and a rejuvinating cup of hot tea in one of our quaint dining rooms, or have a chat by the courtyard fountain when the weather warms.
  Mudhouse Coffee 
  Freshness. When it comes to the way Mudhouse Coffee does business, one word says it all. Freshness. With coffee, and enjoying a delicious cup of coffee, freshness is the only thing that really matters. What we can guarantee to our customers is that Mudhouse Coffee will be the freshest coffee available. We micro roast our coffee in small batches when we need it, so you never have to worry about our coffee sitting and losing the crucial freshness that is so important. It doesn’t matter whether you purchase our coffee inside the coffeehouse or from the website; we guarantee it will be the freshest, best tasting coffee available. Period.
