After 11 a.m., the menu switches to soups, salads and sandwiches until 5 p.m., when dinner service begins. Evening choices include cheeses and charcuterie, meatballs, a pork belly dish and several tartines. There are vegetarian options for each meal.
The café also has a selection of teas, specialty coffees, beer, wine and specialty cocktails.
