Dining in Macon
Macon has various places to choose from in local dining especially in the downtown area. The local cuisine in the downtown area comes in many flavors like Southern Home Cooking, Italian, European, Chinese, Hispanic and African. With so many places and cuisines to choose from its only fitting for Macon to gather downtown restaurants together for restaurant goers to sample various cuisines, which is know by locals as the Taste of Downtown.
Every year in September, hundreds of citizens come out to the Taste of Downtown to try over 60 dishes from downtown restaurants. Coffeehouses in the downtown area have also brought a new flavor to those looking to try various blends of coffee and pastries. Coffeehouses are also home to late night visitors looking for night entertainment and friend gatherings.
