Located in the Metropole Marketplace, Cafe Metropole is a popular outdoor Cafe featuring a Healthy Alternative menu, Patio Dining, Private Patio Parties/ Catering services and Vegan, Vegetarian & Gluten-Free friendly options
Cafe Metropole began its life in 2008 when I traveled to Italy and was inspired by the eye-appealing, fresh, great tasting and good-for-you food available from even the smallest street vendor. I set out to provide an alternative to the typical "tourist" food - fried, breaded, processed, over-sauced, over-salted - offered in Avalon.
HOW ABOUT SOME WORLD FLAVOR? One of my goals is to provide flavors from around the world that I love and crave because they are not available here: Thai, Indian, Mediterranean, Moroccan, African and real Mexican (not the watered down version) influences are found in our menu as well as true American southern fare such as barbeque and catfish.
HOW ABOUT FOOD THAT'S GOOD FOR MY BODY: Another aim is to provide food that is nourishing and not laden with fats and processed ingredients. We are proud to present food that is made from scratch using fresh, raw ingredients. We are not the calorie police but we do serve food based on the premise that more is not necessarily better. We focus on flavor and quality as opposed to quantity. Real roasted turkey. Fresh herbs and roasted spices as opposed to oils and butter. Homemade soup stock instead of salt-laden artificial base. Having weighed more than 250 lbs. at one point in my life, my cafe represents my own food philosophy - make the calories count for great flavor AND great nourishment - not just something to fill me up.
HOW ABOUT FOOD FOR EVERYONE, INCLUDING VEGANS, VEGETARIANS and THOSE WITH FOOD LIMITATIONS? Not everyone eats pizza and hamburgers. Some of us don't eat meat. Some of us can't eat wheat. Cafe Metropole strives to provide flavorful foods for vegans, vegetarians and those with food allergies. My staff is trained and knowledgable about the way in which our food is prepared and proper techniques for safety.
Finally, after a 30-year career as a lawyer, I wanted to work in a place with warm friendly people and a bright, cheery ambience. I hope that you will come enjoy a meal with us.
Cheers, Pam Albers, Owner
