In addition to being home of the Lawrence D. Bell Museum, Mentone is also known for being the "Egg Basket of the Midwest". Because of prolific commercial egg production in the area, Mentone holds an Egg Festival annually in early June to celebrate its heritage. A large concrete egg stands near the town center and is considered locally to be the "Largest Egg in the World". The Bell Museum has been active in supporting this annual event. Nearby restaurants in the downtown area consist of Teel’s Restaurant, Subways, and Bourbon St Pizza.
