Happy Trails Catering keeps eaters on their phalanges with a weekly rotating menu of fresh, eclectic entrees, sandwiches, and salads. Previous patrons have stopped in during lunch (Monday–Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.) to enjoy hearty lasagnas (basil pesto or beef and marinara, $9.50) or a delectable meatloaf sandwich on ciabatta ($9.50). Mindful masticators wishing to achieve a zen-like meat-and-bread balance can indulge in gourmet sandwiches ($8.50) such as the sage-roasted turkey breast with lingonberry cream cheese. Additionally, customers looking to provide catering for a group of voracious stilt marathoners (10-person minimum required) can peruse a menu that features scotch chicken, artichoke parmesan-puff hors d’oeuvres, New York cheesecake, and more.
While feasting during lunch, lavish languidly under the canopy of the café's camphor tree or on its serene brick patio. Partnered with plates of elegant edibles, Happy Trails Catering's peaceful outdoor seating sets a serene backdrop for a blushing debutante's formal garden hoedown.
