Gathering Place

The Gathering Place Café is an inviting oasis where you can relax and recharge – with food that nourishes the body and revitalizes the soul, in a refreshing atmosphere filled with the soothing elements of nature. So, go ahead. Escape the everyday. Enjoy a short break or a long afternoon. Linger in the quiet moments away from the hurried pace of everyday life. And watch the world renew itself as the days, and the seasons, pass by. And you, too, will be renewed.

In addition to serving a full selection of Starbucks beverages, the café also will serve a wide selection of breakfast and lunch items. Selections will change seasonally, so you'll want to check back often for the latest menu additions.
