Our cafe offers you a variety of options including:

salads contain quality produce. Options include a Seasonal Salad

Apple Chicken Salad (Voted Best Salad in Style Magazine's
Reader's Choice Awards!), Caesar

selections. To top them, our selection of dressings are
very high-quality and mouth-watering.
Unique Sandwiches. If you haven't heard about our
Tuscan Grilled Chicken Sandwich, you haven't been on Vernon Street! This sandwich is something to talk
about. Be careful, you may end up with an addiction (we are thinking of
starting a Tuscan Chicken Rehab Center). For the vegetarians out there, we
have an equally addictive Veggie Tuscan that is catching on like wildfire!
Our Chicken Salad Sandwich uses a recipe that includes slivered almonds
and sliced grapes! Our Gourmet Veggie Sandwich also has
a band of devoted followers, may of which like to get it on a wrap. Other
popular sandwiches include Roasted Turkey, Egg Salad with Dill,
Albacore Tuna Salad, Gourmet Cheese, etc. Our specials change
frequently but you'll find some pretty great deals at times.
- Quality Soups. We pride ourselves in the quality and
taste of our soups. We change the selection often so be sure to ask what's
available. A few of our great signature soups include Harvest Grain with
Chicken Tortilla Soup, Creamy Asparagus, and Chilled Strawberry Cream Soup. Note:
In very warm weather, we may not have hot soup available so be sure to ask.

definitely be memorable!

and espresso products including lattes, cappuccinos, espresso, blended
