A Graceful Menu

Our Fresh/Local Commitment to you: Grace Café’s nutritious and delicious menu changes daily based on what is available seasonally and locally, and caters to a familiar “southern home cooking” palate. Daily selections include a choice of two fresh soups, salads, sandwiches, and entrées. Desserts and breads are sourced from local bakers. Beverages include “water infusions” (water infused with fruit, vegetables and herbs), iced tea, and locally-roasted coffee. Soda is not an option at Grace Café nor processed or foods containing preservatives. Customers will be able to choose their own portion size to eliminate food waste and give people a greater sense of control over what and how they eat.

To ensure the freshest and healthiest products available, Grace Café will work to build relationships with local farmers and will actively pursue Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares and memberships.
