Our Food and Fountain

Have you ever wondered why foods you crave are the ones that are bad for you? They don't have to be.  With the right ingredients, they'll lower your cholesterol!

We use these healthful ingredients as standard, not as an option.   You'll notice a huge difference, especially with the butter, eggs, and cream. They taste rich but light. We specialize in European cuisine, prepared the traditional way - no microwave ovens or deep fat fryers.

The menu below is up-to-date for Oct 21-22 (closed Sun Oct 23).

Fountain Drinks. Drinks that are made fresh at a soda fountain can taste much different that what you are used to from a bottle or can. 
At the Palm Court, we're proud of our soda fountain, and of the person behind the counter skilled at concocting drinks the way they were done 100 years ago. 
Many are made with fresh-squeezed fruit juices that you'll find very refreshing, and a perfect match for fine dining. 
There's an art to making one correctly (if you want to know more, Art of Drink is a place to start).
