To celebrate the spring and summer seasons, Groundswell Cafe is rolling out a new menu! The first three new menu items include: Roast Beef Feta Wrap on a whole wheat tortilla, a Strawberry Poppy Seed Salad, and a Vegan Caesar Salad. Our dressings are homemade and lettuce is in part supplied by the hydroponic grow wall in the Groundswell Coworking space next door. More menu items will be added in the coming few weeks.

Stop in, try out a new dish, and tell us what you think!
