Eats & Drinks: Arsaga’s Mill District
481 S. School Ave., Fayetteville | (479) 287-6749 |
Arsaga’s coffee shops have become a staple in the culinary and cultural landscape of Northwest Arkansas. Their iconic locales have peppered our consciousness for over a generation, starting with a coffee shop on Block Street in the early ‘90s.
Since then, Arsaga’s has evolved into a relevant force that includes a grab-and-go spot inside the Fayetteville Public Library and a fast-paced restaurant full of life, coffee and good food at The Depot on Dickson Street. The “Arsaga’s” name is indeed quintessentially Fayetteville, but it’s also intrinsically attached to altruism and quality. Its newest endeavor, Arsaga’s Mill District, is no exception.

COVID-Canceled Season Sparks Intense Fall as Razorback Baseball Preps For 2021
Maybe the only thing keeping Arkansas baseball from a 17thNCAA Tournament appearance in 18 years was last year’s COVID-19 pandemic, which forced a season shutdown after an 11-5 start.
The shortened season contributed to a more intense fall and Fall Series, which the Red Team won over the Black, 4-2.
“The fall was very competitive,” said head coach Dave Van Horn. “We could put two pretty good teams out there that competed hard. It was a challenge every day. I feel like it was one of the best falls we’ve ever had.”
