The Green Cafe
The Green Café is housed jointly with Studio Lakeville, in what for years was the bandoned firehouse. The studio owner, Leslie Eckstein, has brought Karen Jacobs in to be chef/manager of the café, and the breakfast and lunch offerings are well worth the drive. Breakfast is an ample offering that features huevos rancheros with avocado, baby heirloom tomatoes, black beans and cage-free eggs ($7.95); multigrain French toast with fresh berries ($7.95); and a breakfast burrito brimming with either scrambled eggs or tofu, cheddar or vegan cheese, salsa, black beans and tomatoes ($7). The appearance of “vegan” and “tofu” as alternatives in menu items underscores Eckstein’s emphasis on healthy eating and Jacobs’s flavorful execution of that vision. For lunch, there are "herbivore" selections including a tasty avocado toast on grilled baguette with tomato, balsamic drizzle and micro greens tops the list ($8),)and for "carnivores," a “Bangin’ Burger” of grass-fed beef, cheddar, avocado, pickled red onion and local greens on a fresh bun ($14) or a blackened salmon sandwich, yogurt sauce, pickled onions and arugula ($15). There are housemade breads, muffins, scones and other baked delights, and smoothies, too. Read the full review here. The Green Café 9 Sharon Rd., Lakeville, CT (860) 596-4580 Open 7 a.m. - 3 p.m. daily.
