Iconic & One-of-a-Kind Food Tastings

Our guided Downtown Sunday Brunch Food Tour visits five Roanoke food tasting locations within the colorful and booming Historic District of Roanoke. Delicious samplings, enough for a hearty brunch for most, are served from locally-owned eateries and legendary historic locations. Stops include one of the oldest farmers’ markets in the U.S., one of our downtown’s most popular restaurants located in a colorful former hotel, and a specialty chocolate shop. Tastings range from southern comfort food to ethnic favorites. All food and beverage tastings are included in the ticket price.


Historic & Cultural Experience

During and between tastings, we stroll through the main streets and alleyways of our historic downtown and enjoy a glimpse into Roanoke’s untamed early days, our rail heritage, and landmarks celebrating Roanoke’s unexpected diversity and culture. We also experience and witness our city’s latest boom and local attractions that rival those of larger cities. Our enthusiastic local guides share their knowledge of architectural gems, local lore, legends, exciting local attractions, and restaurants.


Roanoke is rich in colorful history, culture, and one-of-a-kind culinary treats. Combine these with a leisurely stroll and an opportunity to make new friends — and you have a unique and fun way to experience Roanoke! Discover Roanoke’s off-the-beaten-path areas, culture, and food artisans. Included in the tour is our popular Downtown Roanoke Dining Guide booklet, which features downtown restaurant discounts. Our culinary adventure has become a must-do activity when in Roanoke. Whether you’re a local or a visitor, you’ll never view Roanoke the same again.
