Serving up sweet and savory morning and afternoon options since 2009, Jane Heber and her daughter Hannah strive to keep the menu at Taste Cafe healthy, yet delicious.
Though more than half of their profit comes from catering, especially hospital events, this corner café stays busy, but never feels too hectic. Some of their most popular dishes, including their asian chicken wrap, lentil salad and cookies, have remained favorites for a while now.
"Our kale salad has been especially popular lately with this recent kale fad," Jane says.
Currently covered in art by Melinda Melvin, the café's walls are ever-changing, providing a platform for local artists to display their work. Other than offering gluten-free pastries on Thursdays, that seems to be the only aspect of the café that has changed significantly in the past five years. The goal has been to stick with what works.
"We really are health nuts," Jane says. "That definitely has not changed." ♦
