Elke's is a small cafe that offers sit-down service, as well as to-go items. I mostly use it when I want to take home food for a quick dinner, but I need something a few notches above fast food.

In a town with a few too many fast food places, I was pleasantly surprised to find this new cafe offering fresh healthy alternatives. On my first visit there, I got a 1/2 chicken salad sandwich on rye with honey nut broccoli salad as a side--and I'm glad I went with 1/2 a sandwich because the portions are generous. Both... More
