Have had lunch twice recently at the Palette. Food is outstanding, service is good, nice quiet atmosphere and outdoor dining too. Everything I've had is wonderful so don't forget about it...it's a real gem.

I've eaten at The Palette Cafe on various occasions and have always been pleased with the food, the service, and the setting. Although the menu is fairly limited, I have never failed to find something good on it.

Fresh local ingredients combined with international cuisine. Soups, salads, sandwiches, burgers, and homemade desserts. Be sure to try the Croque Monsieur or the French Onion Burger.
