Mount Vernon Reviews
Lincoln Wine Bar is amazing. The people are super friendly. The stores are all fun and unique, especially Big Creek Emporium. The local grocery store, Gary's, will go out of their way to make sure that they carry everything you need. When I moved there when I was little, they didn't carry Ovaltine and I needed to drink it to go to sleep. They've been carrying it ever since.
I love living in Iowa! I have never really liked big cities, so being in a small town in the middle of nowhere is perfect!
We have a lot of comfort food in town, but it's a big variety. We have one place that does great breakfast, another that has great coffee, and then we have a couple bar and grills and a wine bar that serves artisan pizza.
