The Greenleaf Café is a new business located on Pineview Drive in Chester.
The owner is Elise Junker and the chef is Jessica Holmes, a longtime resident of the Okemo Valley. The café specializes in soups, salads, sandwiches, desserts, stews, chilies, quiches and lasagnas, for brunch and lunch Thursday through Sunday.
This is a small café, and Holmes makes everything on the premises. She comes from a large Italian family, uses old family recipes, and also experiments with new dishes. Junker is proud of their offerings.
“Our menus change weekly according to the season,” Junker said. “One popular sandwich is the meatball bomb with onion, bacon and barbecue sauce. Out-of-towners return for this sandwich. We have gluten-free and vegetarian choices. There is a take-out menu: lasagna, meatballs and quiches. Our customers can order pies and cakes: carrot cake, cheesecake, pecan or apple pie and our chocolate stout cake. We offer coffees, teas and a mulled cider spritzer.”
The Greenleaf Café is a friendly place, and Holmes has time to chat with the diners.
The address for the Greenleaf Café is 7 Pineview Drive and Route 103, Chester VT, 05143. The telephone number is 875-7400. The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, and the business is on Facebook. The hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday through Sunday.
