What Our Agents Say

Plainfield has been such a wonderful place to raise our family that I don’t think I could ever leave. From Movies in the Park, Tuesday summer Cruise Nights in the, Plainfield Fest, the Annual Homecoming Parade, and Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony… to all the amazing park district programs and awesome C.W. Avery YMCA, there are so many things to keep a family busy! One of my favorite places is the Village Green Park downtown. After a trip to the park, our kids love walking to the library which often ends in a trip to our favorite spot on Main Street...Milette’s Cupcakes!

The Plainfield food scene is one of the best in the area! If you're looking for coffee, stop into Krema which not only offers coffee and light cafe items, but also movie nights, community events and more. Try Sovereign where you can get a killer Bloody Mary, locally-sourced food and upscale cocktails. For family-friendly options, check out Southern Belles which offers breakfast lunch and dinner and is conveniently located just West of downtown Plainfield.
