DAVENPORT, Iowa — Yelp announced their 10th Annual Top 100 Places to Eat in the United States, and Davenport's Cafe d'Marie made the list at #36!

"It was just goosebumps like all over. I just wanted to thank everybody and send everybody letters in the mail. We get letters in the mail from people after they come here describing how amazing the experience was. And I wanted to do the same and return it to the people that gave this to us." said owner DeAnna Walter.

The restaurant that Quad Citizens know so well offers an "eclectic selection of American dishes with an added European Flair," according to a Yelp news release.

Yelp describes the Quad Cities gem as, "Tucked in an 1860s house along the Mississippi River, Cafe D’Marie transports you to another place and time. Handcrafted European-inspired menu items are familiar enough, yet zhuzhed up with novel flavor combinations and local ingredients. They include a quiche du jour (such as one with artichoke, goat cheese, and spinach), a long list of panini (with ingredients like ham, turkey, pesto mayo, and muenster cheese on tomato basil bread), and colorful salads dressed in a blueberry-feta vinaigrette that Yelpers describe as “unlike any other.” 

“[The menu] was put together with a lot of love,” says DeAnna, a practicing chiropractor who opened her namesake cafe 15 years ago with partner Rick Kimmel in the renovated first floor of their home.

Locals are spreading the word on one of their beloved Cafe's.

"If anybody in the Quad Cities gets a chance, visit what's in your backyard. Come to this place. It is absolutely delicious and absolutely wonderful. And you will not regret coming here one bit," said customer John Maxwell.

The restaurant, located at 614 W. 5th St. in the Gold Coast/Hamburg historic district, was opened in 2009 by the couple inside of their 1865 home, according to the restaurant's official website.

With 600 reviews, the restaurant has accrued an average of 4.8 out of 5 stars on Google Reviews.
