At The Tomato Cafe & Tea Room, servers fill cups with more than 25 varieties of loose-leaf tea—cozy, belly-warming blends that pair well with the cafe's homespun vibes. Amid decorative plates hanging from wood-panel walls, diners settle into dishes of freshly made comfort food such as creamy tomato soup and tomato-basil wraps filled with chicken, egg, or tuna salad. Beyond the homemade fare, the café serves the home front, too, uncorking bottles of Jarhead, a robust red wine made by and for members of the U.S. Marine Corps. Several dinner specials run throughout the week, and on the last Saturday of every month, visitors who've had a birthday that month drink their tea for free to celebrate escaping the Mad Hatter's insane clutches.
