Independence Day marks the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, which declared independence from Great Britain. It’s hard to imagine Independence Day without fireworks. But how did this tradition get started?
John Adams wrote, “I am apt to believe that [Independence Day] will be celebrated, by succeeding generations, as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade [...] and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other from this time forward, forevermore.” His wish for a large celebration was shared far and wide. The first-ever recorded Fourth of July party was held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on July 4, 1777, with plenty of pomp and parade. Hurrah!

The Café’s food philosophy is the reason its menus and meals have become a popular draw to our community. Our philosophy is to find a celebration that falls on each Saturday (or close to it) from any tradition or place on the planet.
Each week the Chef team searches the world for these opportunities to celebrate our community. We embrace cuisine from around the world and bring it to the table for all to eat. Our desire is to provide palette-expanding opportunities that meet the needs of all our guests.
Our food is made from scratch – rarely opening cans or boxes – and meets the needs of any dietary preference or restriction. Our weekly menu offers vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free foods as well as meat or fish protein options.
We believe that when we sit down together and share a meal we become a beloved community – a family who shares times of celebration and traditions.
