  • It's called The Paint Box Café for a reason. They provide fresh ingredients for you to create your own masterpiece, just the way you like it or you can choose one of their already crafted salads and sandwiches.
    Under new ownership, the cafe was a place Heather Durbin loved long before she purchased it.
    "I knew how many people loved this place just as much as I did. I didn't want them to have to say goodbye," she said. "Each time I came for lunch it was more than a meal. It refreshed me and it inspired me."
    Heather and her husband, Steve bought the cafe, right after it closed the end of March and were reopened by May 1. They hope to continue offering the same experiences they'd grown accustomed to.
    There will be a few subtle changes to the decor and menu, Durbin said, to create something new or make something better, but for the most part things will remain the same. Loyal customers can expect the same favorites like the Ham and Cheddar Rolls, Stuffed Spud Soup, Blake's Choice or the Jordan's Special.
    "There are too many to list. Really, I don't think there is anything on our menu that someone hasn't told me they love," she said. "We are always coming up with specials, including discounts on our current menu items and new things to try."
    The menu consists of homemade soups, sandwiches and salads. There are healthier options available like the PB 300, a lettuce salad loaded with fresh-roasted chicken and veggies that is only 300 calories, including the dressing. A selection of options caters to vegetarians. Or for those with a heartier appetite there is a meatloaf sandwich. Bread is made from scratch daily, and the Paint Box Bacon is also homemade.
    The cafe is focusing on offering items that will suit the tastes of all genders and age groups. They just introduced Donna's Summer Salad as a seasonal offering. It is made with mixed greens, fresh strawberries, pineapple, mandarin oranges and glazed pecans.
    Check out the bakery case where you can always take home a variety of cookies, cupcakes, brownies and other delicious items that are also baked fresh daily. You may join them for lunch during their regular hours during the week or call to schedule a private party, special baked goods order, or for your catering needs.
