Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Red Rover Cafe
Red Rover Cafe's menu typifies classic deli fare, from the New York-style bagels served each morning to the kosher dill pickles paired with every sandwich. Their selection of sandwiches includes classics such as reubens and tuna salad, though patrons can also build their own choosing from a selection of meat, cheese, and toppings. There are also a few salads on the menu, as well as freshly baked pies and Intelligentsia coffee, which is strong enough to wake a bear hibernating in a mattress store, and Schoeps gourmet ice cream from Wisconsin.
