Cafe Ollie, a locally beloved café in Depot Town, has evolved after an expansion and rennovations in early 2017. Now, foodies can find delight in two distinct eateries: Ollie Food & Spirits, a full-service restaurant and bar, and Cream & Crumb, a cozy bakery with an assortment of ice cream and coffee. The dynamic duo will prepare the food with great attention to detail, using high-quality, locally sourced ingredients.
Food enthusiasts from near and far poured into Ollie Food & Spirits for their grand opening Friday, April 7 eager to try the reimagined menu. Featuring fresh, locally sourced ingredients, the seasonally rotated menu has a variety of options covering breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Each dish is prepared at the time it is ordered, which means you may receive your Veggie Wrap before your friend is presented with their piping hot Buffalo Mac. As explained by the gracious staff, Ollie exudes a sense of community. If you receive your meal first, those joining you may be tempted to sneak a taste!
Ollie Food & Spirits has a well-rounded menu composed of savory appetizers, spectacular craft cocktails, and flavorful dishes. Vegetarian and vegan options are prevalent, as are quality meats and cheeses. Whether you’re in the mood for a light snack and glass of wine, or a hearty burger made with ground chuck from a local purveyor, Knight’s Market, the New American restaurant will not disappoint. The exposed brick, crystal chandeliers, and impressive plating add an elegant feel to the casual atmosphere. For an unconventional fine dining experience Ollie Food & Spirits is the place to be.
For a delightful treat or cup of perfectly roasted coffee, venture next door to Cream & Crumb. Serving pastries, Zingerman’s bread, ice cream, and more, the local bakery has a warm and inviting atmosphere with natural lighting flooding the space from almost every direction. High top seating along the window facing Cross St. gives customers a chance to indulge while enjoying a magnificent view of Depot Town. Gold accents and eye-catching chandeliers complement details found at Ollie Food & Spirits, subtly linking the two ventures.
