Central Café isn’t known just for serving Equal Exchange fairly traded organic coffee and tea, or its great service – it’s also a breakfast destination.
The place is known for its tasty rendition of that stalwart southern tradition known as “Biscuits and Gravy.” The sausage gravy (25 gallons a week!) is made at the store, using sausage that has been ground and seasoned in our Meat Market.
There is seating for a couple dozen people in Central Café, along with a toaster oven and microwave. So even if you’re not in the mood for biscuits and gravy, you can sit down to a meal of hot, fresh oatmeal; spinach or ham-and-cheese quiche; a couple of varieties of breakfast bagels (try the chipotle one!); or a chorizo burrito.
Serving fairly traded Equal Exchange coffees and teas, Central Café uses all organic milk – with your choice of dairy, soy or rice milk. Self-serve drip coffee is available in four sizes, ranging in price from $1.29 to $1.99 – with one free refill.
Central Café also offers pastries, muffins and cookies, and even beverage-related housewares like water bottles, mugs and commuter cups.
The café composts nearly 100 percent of its waste – they’re working on replacing a few more items with compostable alternatives so they can reach their goal of 100 percent.
