After taking a good, hard look at the food Americans eat and the process it goes through before arriving on their plates, the owners of the Green Room Bistro & Juice Bar found not only cause for alarm, but also the inspiration to open their own local foods restaurant using many organic products. With a firm belief that good food can also be exquisite, the restaurateurs teamed up with local farmers to assure their menu presents only the freshest and healthiest unprocessed proteins, vegetables, and fruits available. Dishes such as regional, grass-fed beef burgers, vegan portobello burgers, and gluten-free apple walnut salads come packed with nutrients and flavors, just as Mother Nature's son Carl intended. To complement the green cuisine, the owners set up a juice and beverage bar that slings fruit smoothies, Oogave natural sodas, and Peace Coffee.
Every day since 2000, the tantalizing aromas of roasting coffee have flooded St. Thomas Roasters as staffers create a variety of bean blends using an onsite Diedrich roaster. Their creations include fair-trade organic coffee from Honduras, a special Linglestown blend, and flavored roasts including dark-chocolate dust and cinnamon sticky bun. Meanwhile, on the first floor of their shop, they transform the freshly roasted beans into piping-hot cups of coffee and espresso drinks, complementing sweet and savory food options such as apple croissants, breakfast pastries, and paninis.
The shop itself, housed in a residential building with a stone façade, offers the comforts of home as patrons cozy up inside or head to the porch to watch live music from a rotating lineup of artists. They can also bring home bags of beans to grind at home or use as props for a coffeehouse-themed sitcom.
