I stopped in this little European-styled tearoom downtown for lunch one day during my trip. The restaurant is owned by a European immigrant family and features a menu of sandwiches, salads, soups, and European specialties. A selection of pastries and desserts is also available.
My lunch was a chicken salad sandwich and vegetable soup. Both were delicious. The sandwich was very fresh and did not taste like the chicken salad was served out of a carton from a foodservice company. Likewise, the soup had a homemade taste that cannot come from a frozen or canned stock. Despite having a new server who was still a little unfamiliar with the menu and the restaurant's procedures, service was attentive and the owner stopped by my table a couple of times to make sure things were fine. I chose one of the dessert selections of the day and have since forgotten what it was but remember that it was very good. Overall, I would recommend this quaint European-style cafe for its fresh, delicious food, friendly service, and very reasonable prices.
Additional information: Taste of Europe is open for lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday. Breakfast is served on Saturdays only. Closed on Sundays.
