Batavia has invested in a "reinvention" of its retail district on both sides of the Fox River and its downtown. On the East Side is River Street where restaurants such as Gaetano's, Pal Joey's, River's Edge and Bar Evolution attract thousands of customers each week. On the West Side, a completely new Walgreen's and McDonald's anchor a district where retail mixes with local eateries. These include Daddio's, the "roadside diner" rife with Americana, and Brianna's, the all-new, all-day restaurant popular for family and business gatherings.
With two world-class bicycle shops in a city with bike trails on both sides of town, the City of Batavia welcomes visitors for an hour or a day. From equally world-class spas such as Katrina's, to down-home haircuts at Foltos Tonsorial Parlor and Beardsgaard's, Batavia offers services people can enjoy with a smile. Batavia Mainstreet and the Batavia Chamber of Commerce combine to provide promotional opportunities, events and resources for Batavia's diverse mix of downtown and commercial strip enterprises.
