A Visit to the Rolling Pin Cafe

On a perfectly pleasant July day, I lunched at the Rolling Pin Café in Westwood, NJ.

Inside, their dining room is charming, yet very small. This is a popular spot, so it gets quite noisy, and I prefer to dine here when I can get one of their two outdoor tables.

What's more refreshing than raspberry lemonade, $2, on a hot summer day?

A cup of gazpacho soup, and half of a roasted zucchini, yellow squash and tomato sandwich with onion chutney, hold the cheese and mayo, with a small side of sweet potato salad, $8.25.

There are no vegan dessert options, but soy milk is available for coffee and espresso drinks.

Visit the Rolling Pin Café, 341 Broadway, Westwood. Open 8-4, Monday-Saturday.

Westwood has been offering free concerts Wednesdays in July. Up next: Tramps Like Us on July 23rd playing Bruce Springsteen music. No, it's not "the boss" himself, but close enough if you can't get (or want to spend the money for) tickets to his shows. Learn more. Visit your town's web site, check out your local newspapers, and stop by your library to see if free events like movies, concerts and other events are going on in your town. Many libraries screen movies, including Ridgewood, which shows a different foreign film each month.
