Patio Season is Here! Head to Digby’s Pub

It’s spring! Spring equals patio season and one awesome restaurant to head to for a lovely outdoor experience with an amazing view of our beautiful courthouse is Digby’s Pub and Patio. This restaurant is also the perfect place to go if you want a night out in downtown Lafayette or want a quick lunch.

Grab a seat on the patio and check out their menu that has something for everyone. From Velveeta loaded french fries to duck egg roles, the options are interesting. I highly recommend their burgers. The beef, pork and seasonal produce they serve are purchased locally. They make each burger to order from their never frozen beef, so they are fresh and delicious! I also recommend their sweet potato fries to go along with the burger. Next time I go back, I am definitely going to give their cheese bricks and Monte Cristo sandwich a try!

My friend ordered their chicken bacon ranch wrap and she exclaimed at the richness of the different flavors. She had never had a wrap quite like it as it features grilled chicken wrapped in a jalapeno cheddar tortilla, applewood bacon, lettuce, tomato, vintage aged manchango cheddar and served with their homemade ranch dressing. She shared that the manchango cheddar gave it a smooth sharpness that was extremely delicious.  It was one of the best wraps she has ever tasted and highly recommends.

If you are not in the mood to sit outdoors and/or as spring brings many rain showers, head indoors. The decor is rustic meets industrial and is a fantastic place to relax and have a drink.

IMG_8018Digby’s is special as it is named after William Digby, the founder of Lafayette. On Christmas Eve 1824, at the federal land sale in Crawfordsville, at 22, William Digby bought 84.23 acres along the Wabash River that he would call Lafayette for $231.24. The owners of Digby’s think Digby would be proud of Lafayette, a thriving community with a strong economy and resources, culture and talent equal to cities twice our size.
