Please let us know if there are restaurants that should (or should not) be listed here, or if you have updates. We're relying on you to keep this web site current.

The Cafe

The Cafe always gets good reviews. On a recent visit, we loved the curry chicken salad sandwich (vegan) and the cold bean salad. The mostly-vegetarian menu—there are a few fish dishes—also features excellent veggie burgers, soups, pizza, stir fry, and great side dishes. Large portions at reasonable prices. Also, a good selection of beer and wine. Inside seating in a cozy atmosphere, or take out.
