    Carbondale, Marion and Cape Girardeau (each approximately 30 minutes away) offer a multitude of restaurant options such as Lone Star, Panera, Outback Steak House, Red Lobster, Cracker Barrel, Applebees and more. Cape Girardeau also has a very nice Italian restaurant called Belle Italia if you find yourself craving some great pasta. They’re open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Sunday. Our favorite place in Marion is Honeybakers with truly great desserts – 7 or 8 kinds of pie and equal number of cakes from which to select – as well as terrific rolls to enjoy with your meal. And I highly recommend their Louisiana sweet potato as a part of dinner! Last but not least, try the number one ranked "Place to Pig Out in America" ... Lambert's Cafe , Home of the Throwed Roll, in Sikeston, Mo.
