A CUISINE FEATURING A BLEND OF VIBRANT ASIAN FLAVORS AND INDULGENT PASTRIES.

When you step into 2nd Language, you’ll be immersed into a space of passion, culture, and history. With a cuisine featuring a blend of vibrant Asian flavors and indulgent pastries, our goal is to bring some of the best global offerings into one innovative cultural hub in the heart of downtown Evansville. Whether you’re in the mood for savory or sweet, breakfast or dinner, our eclectic menu is designed to satiate taste buds big and small. Our selection ranges from beautifully layered croissants in our Patisserie, to flavorful Southeast Asian cuisine on the savory side. Why the unique combination, you ask? We say, why not.

INFLUENCED BY EUROPEAN PASTRIES. INSPIRED BY GLOBAL FLAVORS.

In the Patisserie, or French pastry hub, you’ll find a variety of decadent pastries ranging from vegan hand pies to our signature layered French Donut, all created with careful technique. On the savory side (coming soon), expect your favorite Asian cuisine classics elevated to the next level with the incorporation of elements from the Patisserie. Think airy, sweet Japanese milk bread or crisp croissants meshed with Banh Mi and Katsu sandwiches. Yeah, we’re hungry now too.

🍲 It's important for us to give everyone the opportunity to taste culinary creations from all over S.E. Asia. That's why set out to craft the most authentic vegan version of our traditional Ramen Bowls.

🇻🇳 Did you know that Banh Mi translates to "bread" in Vietnamese? This is because Traditional Banh Mi used a baguette, which was introduced to the Vietnamese by the French in the early 20th century.
.
🥐 After the Vietnam War, this iconic sandwich started popping up all over the world and eventually reached our menu, where we swapped out the traditional baguette for our scratch-made Croissant. The Croissant adds a whole other dimension of flavor and texture to the Banh Mi, creating a dish truly unique to Evansville!
