Lunch at the Heartwood—Something for Everyone!

Essex County Senior Living Community Crane’s Mill offers its residents the freedom of a flexible meal plan so they can dine where and when they please.

A wide view of The Heartwood Cafe

Crane’s Mill residents enjoy the freedom of enjoying freshly cooked meals for breakfast, lunch, or dinner by using their flexible meal plan. The meal plan features enough money each quarter so a resident can enjoy a five-course meal in the Candleberry Dining Room every single night.

However, many residents choose to use their meal plan for breakfast, lunch or dinner at the Heartwood Cafe—a cafeteria-style eatery that offers a wide array of a-la-carte choices, including each night’s Candleberry featured entrees.

Lunch is an especially delicious time of day at the Heartwood Cafe. There are hot entrees, a full salad bar, fresh soups, homemade pizza, a short-order grill (think chicken, hamburgers, salmon, and more), and made-to-order deli sandwiches (with homemade potato chips that are truly outstanding!).

On top of all those choices, here’s a look at some of the featured items on today’s menu:

Roasted Red Pepper Soup
Chicken Creole
Seasoned Pork
Snap Peas
Roasted Vegetables
Brown Rice
Scallion Noodles
Chocolate Brownies

Truly, the Heartwood Cafe stands out as a terrific spot to pick up a quick meal to enjoy with friends, or to take “to-go” back to your apartment or cottage.
