Father’s Day at Volunteer Park Cafe

Ericka Burke and the Volunteer Park Cafe crew are celebrating Father’s Day on June 21 with a Sunday Supper full of classic favorites.

The cafe will be open for brunch and lunch too, of course. If dad is more of a morning person, bring him in for a plate of brioche French toast and coffee, or later, for a BLT! The pastry case will also have some treats: cookies in the shapes of ties, bowties, and mustaches, golf-themed vanilla cupcakes, and fishing-themed chocolate cupcakes. Grab some treats for dad—they’ll be available from Friday through Sunday.

As for dinner, here’s the menu for the family-style meal:

Bread & Garden Herb Butter
Wedge Salad
with Bibb lettuce, bacon, tomatoes, and blue cheese

Pot Roast
with Yukon Gold mashed potatoes and asparagus

Cherry Pie
with house-made ice cream

Sunday Suppers are a multi-course dinner served family-style. Cost is $40/person. Wine and beer is available off the menu.

Start time is 6pm and reservations are highly recommended, as the dinners fill up fast. Please call the cafe at 206.328.3155 book online at www.alwaysfreshgoodness.com.
