About East Lake Cafe'
Breakfast is served all day and is a favorite for many. Lunch is not your average “sandwich shop”, (although one can request any sandwich), there are many very unique delicious selections on many different bread choices. Starting this year, they started dinner service. They are open Thursday, Friday & Saturday until 9pm continually from 7 am.
Catering is one of the hidden culinary secrets of the East Lake Café. They cater private functions on or off premises, as well as for community groups, local schools and businesses. Chef’s Mari, Renee & Kurt along with Peter’s wife, Angela‘s culinary skills are utilized for most of the catering events and all of their catering is customized to one’s tastes, themes and preferences.
