the park cafe

IMG_0786On a recent trip downtown to drop off old paint at the recycle center, we happened upon a great cafe. The Park Cafe, located on Rutledge Avenue, offers a simple “farm to fork” menu. Open pretty much all day everyday, and a bit off the beaten path, makes this sweet cafe the perfect spot for locals. After perusing the menu, we decided to share the honey poached turkey sandwich and the kale salad, delicious! Next time we are hoping to make it for dinner and try one of their cocktails as well. With ample outdoor seating, this is the perfect time of year to stop by for a meal! Oh and don’t forget to tell them two doors down sent you!
