Neighbor’s Mill Bakery and Cafe is a family-owned restaurant that opened its doors in 2000, according to owner Cary Nabors. The idea came from his parents, Mike and Karin Nabors, who founded and established the business, becoming a favorite among locals. They’ve received and have been nominated for the Arkansas Food Hall of Fame multiple times.

“Back in the 70s, my dad bought a stone grist mill at an auction, simply because he thought it was cool, without any idea of what he’d do with it,” Cary explained. “Years later, that mill inspired the creation of our bakery. Initially, we used that mill to grind our grains. Today, we have a newer mill but we still grind much of our own grains, including whole wheat, rye, and spelt… right here.”

Neighbor’s Mill bakes everything from scratch daily, offering about 25+ varieties of bread along with a delicious assortment of muffins, pastries, cookies, cinnamon rolls, pies, cakes, and cheesecakes. The restaurant opens at 7 am and closes at 6 pm, Monday through Saturday. For breakfast, they serve omelets, French toast, breakfast sandwiches, eggs, and freshly baked pastries. Lunch starts at 10:30 am, featuring grilled and cold sandwiches, soups, and salads made with local ingredients whenever possible.

During holidays, Neighbor’s Mill offers special sweets and themed breads. You can enjoy delicious coffees at their full espresso bar, featuring locally roasted coffee from Mountain Bird Coffee near Eureka Springs. They also sell homemade granola and the same stone-ground flours used in their breads.

“What I love most is seeing our regulars each morning and enjoying coffee with them,” Cary said. “We see ourselves as a community hub where people gather for good food and company. Our casual atmosphere includes seating indoors and outdoors, on our patio. We can accommodate large groups and even reserve a room for up to 30 people if you call ahead,” he added.
