Can you relate to this? I am sure everyone has been in this situation once or twice. It is lunch time, and we have just left Big Spring Park in Neosho, MO. Starving, we don’t feel as though we can stand the wait needed to prepare a meal at home. So once again we will be eating out. Upon cruising the boulevard, we find ourselves burned out on the paper-wrapped sandwiches and burritos. That is when it hits me, Cafe Angelica. I mention this option the family, and everyone is in agreement. A unanimous vote rarely happens, and since it did, I turn towards the square without a second thought.
Cafe Angelica is on our town square, so it isn’t one of the visible choices from the main street. But, the previous experiences with the diner makes the trip almost a necessity. Upon entering the cafe, we automatically feel right at home, as we are promptly greeted by a waitress. The cafe is a small, bistro style with a very comfortable atmosphere. The menu variety has something for everyone in the family. I love their raspberry salad dressing, and my daughter loves their great flavored baked chicken and whipped potatoes. This cafe is great if you want to escape the ordinary. Salads, a wide variety of entrees, and home made fudge are just a few examples of the choices available at Cafe Angelica.
A unique option that Cafe Angelica offers is the daily lunch specials. They vary everyday, except for Thursday. Thursdays are always the burrito platter. Aside from Burrito Thursdays, every day features a different theme. One of the popular lunch specials is the Egg Salad Sandwich. This, as with all specials, includes a side salad. The manager has said that even he doesn’t know what he is going to offer as a special until arriving at work. It just depends on what he is in the mood to fix that day. And, every special chosen is a great benefit to the patrons. It is what they return for, time and time again.
If you want the benefit of a great lunch from Cafe Angelica, but don’t have the time to sit down in the cafe, they have the perfect solution. Just call in the order ahead of time, and it will be packaged and ready for carry-out upon your arrival.
Cafe Angelica is locally owned and operated, and customers always seem to be greeted with a smile. Great customer service is what is strived for, and it is another reason why the customers continue to return. This restaurant should really think about franchising, as it would be a great addition to other towns, just as it is a great addition to Neosho. Cafe Angelica isn’t just another place to dine, it is a true angelica experience.
