With the ongoing revamp and revitalization of Downtown Worcester we’ve seen plenty of new and enticing restaurants popping up in the area. Waiting to here what’s good? Well, the verdict is in on Garden Fresh Courthouse Café. Located directly across from the brand new Worcester Courthouse on Main St, the Garden Fresh Courthouse Café has become a favorite among the judicial crowd since its opening on December 10th.
The atmosphere at Garden Fresh Courthouse Café is classic and stylish, but still comfortable and low key. The décor is unexpected and sets the café apart from the typical lunch stop. Marble counters, ornate lighting fixtures, and classy bistro tables all add to the backdrop for your lunchtime escape. About furnishing his restaurant, owner Dean Stamoulis says, “We tried to buy the very best of everything. We’re here for the long haul.” The Café is surprisingly spacious with plenty of seating to cater to the lunchtime hustle and bustle of Main St. and offers WiFi to keep you plugged in.
The menu at Garden Fresh Courthouse Café is very reasonably priced and includes hot and hearty soups made fresh daily, crisp salads, and a list of amazing specialty sandwiches as well as a rotation of exciting specials. One of the menu’s standout items is the Seven Hills Burger, “An angus burger, grilled to perfection and topped with onions, mushrooms, cheddar cheese and bacon, served on grilled marble rye.” On your way out you might want to peruse their selection of deserts, pastries and parfaits to go, in case you get a mid afternoon craving. Another favorite feature at the Courthouse Café is their all day breakfast menu. From bagels to Belgian waffles, what better way to brighten your morning? Or afternoon, for that matter?
Visit Garden Fresh Courthouse Café for your next lunch date (or court date) at 204 Main Street Worcester, Monday through Friday from 7 am to 4 pm. To find out about their catering services please call 508-753-8500.
