a vegetarian, vegan, or meat-based meal you will be pleasantly surprised. A delightful selection of healthy salads and main dishes are available as well as fresh baked items to take home! We have eaten at the Market Cafe twice recently and enjoyed a variety of delicious food. I can recommend it certainly worth a visit.

This is one of my favorite places in town. Paul and Karin are hard working and provide exceptional healthy choices. The often use spelt flour and quinoa in place of whole wheat. The chocolate cake is sensational!!! The rooted vegetable soups are excellent along with the splet flour crust pizza. Always a pleasure to have lunch here!
