Though plants draw energy directly from the sun, humans require that our star’s shiny nutrients develop into more complex fare through a process involving photosynthesis, bees, and mountains of paperwork. Taste refined solar satiation with today’s Groupon for classic American and deli eats at Lisa’s Cafe in Palmyra. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get $30 worth of dinner.
- For $10, you get $20 worth of breakfast and lunch.
With more than 30 years in the food service industry, owner Lisa Foust and her staff grill, fry, and bake up a mix of classic American and deli-style eats. Dining fishermen can toss napkin nets over laps before sending fork spears into the chicken Chesapeake, a grilled boneless chicken breast topped with crab meat and a shredded cheese blend ($15). The savory grilled, smothered chopped steak similarly sates with a pound of ground beef under a blanket of grilled vegetables, steak sauce, and cheddar and jack cheeses ($13). Satisfy stomachs with grilled Reubens and Rachels stacked with corned beef, Thousand Island dressing, swiss cheese, and sauerkraut and coleslaw respectively, plus a choice of any deli side ($8.50 each). Guests can also dive mouth-first into 14-inch pizzas ($8), 8-ounce burgers ($8), or a small vegetarian strombolis stuffed with spinach, tomato, onion, peppers, broccoli, mushrooms, and cheese ($8 for a small size).
Midday diners scarf down deli sandwiches made to order ($8 each) or house specialties like the grilled portabella mushroom ($7) and the grilled tuna steak ($9). The chicken cordon bleu settles subseeking stomachs with grilled chicken breast, ham, swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, and onion bursting mouthward from a homemade roll, italian roll, or wrap ($8). Breakfast is served Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and includes daybreak favorites, such as eggs benedict with home fries or fruit ($7.25) and creamed chipped beef with toast ($6.25). Eager eaters relax inside Lisa's inviting dining room, enjoying meals while gazing at a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and pondering the cultural significance of Pippi Longstocking.
- We had a wonderful late lunch here. Portions are very generous and the soups are delicious. My husband joked that he wanted to come back for dinner, but we were still full from lunch! We had a reuben and burger, and cup of soup, no room for dessert. Excellent attentive staff, definitely reccomend [sic] if you are local or in the area. – Nessie, Yahoo! Travel
- They have unique flavors of iced tea, french fries are served in cones that hang from a black scrolled holder, and they use cute, multi-colored fiesta dinnerware. On several occasions I have enjoyed grilled asparagus. Their garlic bread sticks are a hit with our crowd as are her pasta dishes. – Roxy A., Insider Pages
