Downtown Medford's light is shining brighter than ever with lots of new storefronts, restaurants, pop ups, food trucks, events and more happening all the time. 

Below are a few highlighted must-stop places in Medford which are ever changing and evolving! 

Larks Kitchen & Cocktails

Larks Kitchen & Cocktails, inside the Inn at the Commons, espouses modern American comfort food. With decor reminiscent of the 1960s, it’s easy to imagine a group of ad men talking business over drinks in the corner booth. The orange and cream color scheme adds a splash of panache to the space. Gorgeous chandeliers brighten the dining room in tandem with the natural sunlight. 

Executive Chef Billy Buscher, named Top Chef at the Ashland Culinary Festival takes his passion to other worldly levels while touring you through the best that southern Oregon's farms can offer. 

This is also a great place to just grab a cocktail with a friend!

Pretty in Paint

Pretty in Paint is just a stones throw from Larks Kitchen & Cocktails and kitty corner to Pear Blossom Park where many downtown events are held. This perfect little shop boasts trendy home decor with elegant, country chic stylings including furniture, textiles, hardware, and statement chandeliers. 

This is a must stop to find a one of a kind gift or to shop for a perfect new top complete with handmade, local jewelry. 


A classic American restaurant and bar with a tantalizing taste of Medford, Oregon history. Some locals will tell you this is the best steakhouse in town, and we don't disagree. However, their Chef driven cuisine honors the diversity of our local and seasonal ingredients with simplicity & elegance. We encourage you to branch out and taste the rainbow!

 This Train Station was built in 1910 with attention to detail from the era.  After the Great Depression and decline of rail use, the station was abandoned from 1955 to 1996. Now, after an extensive renovation as a restaurant and a bar and designation as a National Historic Landmark, this true gem of Southern Oregon architecture once again proudly serves the community.

Thirteen Mercantile

Thirrteen Mercantile is located inside an old, gorgeous Downtown Medford building the main drag. You know that just by looking at the shop entrance, you are about to enter a world of incredible taste. 

Thirrteen Mercantile is part mercantile shop part interior design shop. When you walk in you are greeted by a smorgasbord of visually stunning items. From hand selected local goods to national and international delights, you are sure to find something small or large to take home.

Rogue Organic Cafe

The Rogue Organic Café seeks to provide a lively, friendly, and pleasant dining experience with healthy, organic, and locally-sourced food. However, the taste of their menu items won't let your brain know your eating healthy because they are known for being absolutely delicious. 

They are also known for having the largest salad bar in town. Additionally, they make thoughtful juices blends and exciting smoothies! This is a great place to stop for a quick pick-me-up or to sit down for a full meal. 

Total bonus is that the highly sought after Sweet Cream Ice cream is located inside!
