Have you considered checking out Andersonville Midsommarfest from June 8th – 10th? Here’s 6 Food Vendors You Need to Check Out At Andersonville Midsommarfest This Year. It’s that time of year, when the days are getting longer and warmer again, so come have a drink, eat a lot, browse some amazing merchants and listen to some live music. We’ve teamed up with the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce to highlight some Andersonville Restaurants & an Andersonville Farmers Market vendor that will be at Midsommarfest this year. Here’s some of our favorites!
This Dutch American bistro is a cozy, eclectic space with a stellar patio. The decor is inventive, and changes often as the employees put together their own art pieces for the space. Vincent is casual, inviting and inspiring with an upbeat, ambient music selection, and a staff that will make you laugh, while simultaneously making you feel like an old friend. It’s impossible to not have a smile on your face in here. We would classify this place as an ideal date night spot, that isn’t stuffy in the slightest. So order some wine (or cocktails), some frites and mussels and stay awhile!
At the festival, you should try some of their signature parmesan, truffle frites. You could say we were a fan!
They will also be serving up some amazing made in-house popsicles that will only be served at the festival. We loved the blackberry-basil and the ginger-citrus equally.
If you’re not able to make it to the festival, we’re sad for you, but here’s what you can expect in the restaurant. During the weekdays, you can expect dinner service only, closed Mondays. Sundays offer brunch from 10-2, and dinner service. Their cocktails are well thought out, with fun names and even better flavors. We even tried owner Michael Bransford’s favorite menu item – the chicken liver mousse. We basically licked the dish clean.
Also pictured below is the “High & Tight” – a kaffir lime infused gin, with lemon, cardamom bitters and sparkling Yuzu sake. Chamere had the “Ugly Brother” with angostura bitters, Buffalo Trace bourbon, citrus, vanilla-cinnamon, mint & egg white. Highly recommend their fun and inventive cocktail menu.
Speaking of patios, Jerry’s has one of the best in Andersonville! Jerry’s is a massive space, with the ability to seat over 100 people, that’s been serving the Northside some of the best sandwiches in town. Not to mention, their menu is extensive, and we mean HUGE with over 100 sandwiches to choose from. The offer some delicious sides, salads, apps, cocktails and huge beer list too. We recently discovered they offer tons of gluten free options as well, which is really great for those with this dietary restriction! This place has been a long time favorite of mine, so it was such a pleasure to feature these guys in time for Midsommarfest.
If you’ll be at Midsommarfest, here’s what you can expect to see. Some delicious elotes, fresh made strawberry lemonade, a variety of sausages and bratwursts, and some ice cream cookie sandwiches! We were fortunate to sample almost everything, and let’s just say they really hit the spot.
If you’re coming into Jerry’s outside of the festival, here’s a few of our picks. Their menu is seriously extensive, so the least we can do is give you an idea of what’s on the menu all the time! We ordered the Harland S, a buttermilk-marinated & fried chicken sandwich with American cheese, house pickles, mayo, Crystal hot sauce and lettuce on Challah bread.
We also tried the famous Jerry’s Club – with turkey, applewood bacon, pepper jam, root beer ham, avocado, house pickles, cheddar, lettuce, red onion and southwest mayo on Challah bread. This might have been our favorite!! I mean, look at that stack!
