The Art of Comfort Food

Art is all around you at the Character’s Café. The murals on the wall, which were designed by a RISD grad and handpainted by Artists’ Exchange artists, set the mood for a fun family-friendly experience. Tables and chairs, found and repurposed, have also been handpainted. Even the colorful plates and mugs are handmade by ceramic artists. But it’s the food that really takes the stage here, with breakfast and lunch classics getting an artsy makeover using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Homemade corned beef hash, stacks of mouth-watering pancakes, egg specialties, made-from-scratch soups, angus beef burgers and salad entrees are just a sampling of what you can find on their menu. Seasonal specials let farm-picked produce and fresh seafood take leading roles and add to the already brimming menu selections. Craft beer, creative cocktails, a kids menu and homemade desserts round out the delicious offerings.
