From The Plug Nickel's modest beginnings as a local coffee shop, the Vollmer family–owned establishment has flowered into an elegant restaurant and full-service catering company. Using local ingredients, the chefs fashion hearty hot sandwiches, gourmet cold sandwiches, and contemporary takes on classic American breakfast dishes. Guests cheer to upscale soups and salads with a selection of imported and domestic beer and wines. Accommodating large-scale dining, the restaurant's full-service catering company rolls out an international menu for weddings and special events, such as celebrating a pet snake's first steps. Pleasing the rest of the senses, hardcovers line the shelves of the library dining room as a fireplace floods a sunny tea room with comfort and warmth not experienced since the womb. Outside, on the lush garden patio, diners are sheltered by a dignified white gazebo amid overhanging trees and blooms.
