EUGENE, Ore. — Downtown Eugene is unlike many other downtown areas I have spent time in. It has a style of its own that is retro with touches of new and old. It is full of creativity and color. Down its main streets people sit outside casually enjoying the splendors local businesses have to offer, while also welcoming the sun and taking a moment to smile.

Through the streets of downtown Eugene one can find many small shops, clubs, theaters and eateries to explore. Some of the venues include: Voodoo Doughnuts, Sizzle Pie, Cowfish, Townshend’s Eugene Teahouse, Bijou Metro, and sidewalk vendors.

Located just across from Ken Kesey Square sits Sizzle Pie and its irresistible aroma of fresh pizza.
