METROPOLIS, IL – I went on a cookie run to Sissy’s Sweet Shoppe yesterday evening on Historic Market Street in downtown Metropolis, IL.

I purchased some Sugar and Raisin Cookies that were baked inhouse. They were still soft and mouthwatering delicious.

Sissy’s is the new bakery and coffee shop that resides in an upscale 2-story building that’s been completely renovated by the owners.

The inside of Sissy’s was built with either reclaimed or original materials. The exposed brick and original wooden floors gives this new sweetery a rustic theme with a modern twist.

In short, the place, people and cookies were awesome making last nights cookie run a great success.

Open 7 days a week! 10-8 M-Th, 10-9 Fri-Sat, 12-8 Sunday

METROPOLIS, IL – Bridges Dining Company is a full-service restaurant and bar inside the Harrah’s Hotel and Casino on 100 E. Front Street in Metropolis, IL.

Bridges features American gourmet fare at its best with a simple, easy to read menu to boot. The prices range from $16 for the Bridges Burger to $44 for the 22 oz Porterhouse with two sides.

I highly recommend the $16 Bridges Burger that comes with fries. The burger comes to your table loaded with everything so there’s no extra costs. You get cheese, bacon, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, pickles and a whole lot more.

The management and staff are what makes this place so special, though. They recently updated their menu and made it even better so I posted it below

Aug 8, 2017 - Miltons hot dogs opens in Jones building on Market Street in Metropolis, IL/photonews247.com

METROPOLIS, IL – Miltons Hot Dogs is a sidewalk-served, carryout-only eatery located on Market Street across from the Courthouse and the giant Superman statue in beautiful downtown Metropolis, IL.

Gourmet Hot Dogs Now Served in Superman Square

I went there today and ordered two chili dogs measuring 6×3 inches that happened to be some of the best chili dogs I have ever had. The high quality chili, cheese and onions in concert with Nathan’s hot dogs was a recipe for perfection. The end result was a gourmet hot dog like no other. The staff was very kind and had our dogs neatly packaged and ready to go in no time.

The Name MILTON

The hot dog eatery was named after Milton,  an Attorney that had an office in this building for years. He retired two years ago at 91. He’s now 93 still living in town. His dad worked as an attorney in this same building as well.

The construction of the building began in 1905 and was finished in 1908. It’s all brick and oak timber. The building is like a classic car, it’s gotten better with age.

THE HOT DOG IDEA

The 3-story building was originally built for office space with each floor having a whopping 3200 square feet. Joshua Reagor, real estate agent and owner of the building, explained that:

”It’s just hard to rent office space. So I told my wife: ya know what…we are going to make this work. I said you figure out a business that you want and she came up with this. She designed all this. And of course because I am in real estate I know a lot of sign people. We mainly did it for our girls to work and maybe make a couple part time jobs for someone else.”

BEST HOT DOGS EVER!

These are the best hot dogs around that are loaded with the best toppings ever.  Please visit this hot dog eatery as much as possible to help support family owned businesses.

EATERY UPDATE FOR METROPOLIS

This is the second locally owned eatery to open on Market Street this year, the other being 718 BrewCafe that opened in March. 718 Cafe is a highly endorsed casual eatery that offers alcohol to boot.

And just a few blocks down on Ferry Street is the highly anticipated Cordavino’s Italian Restaurant slated to open soon along with the donut shop on E. 5th Street.

I purchased a mixed order of a dozen donuts for only $10.00 plus tax. I had a regular and a long glazed donut so far and they were the best donuts I’ve ever had.

The dough was incredibly fresh and the glaze was sweetened perfectly to boot. That said, this place turned the basic glazed donut into a gourmet delicacy. OMG they were yummy 🙂
