The Purple Onion is a bakery, coffee house and catering shop. This little local spot took over from Cafe Sienna with a new look and a new crowd. They opened in 2008.
In addition to coffee drinks (cold and hot) they have a selection of pastries, freshly made sandwiches and very good salads too. Their portions are generous.
This is the steak and blue cheese sandwich which comes with a nice field greens salad.
There is outdoor seating along side of the cafe and your dog is welcome to sit with on the patio area.
There is parking on Main Street although it gets busy right in front. There is a lot up College Ave, on the left behind Nick's Next Door. You can also go straight down Main St and park in front of the town center and the Library, a couple blocks down.
In addition to the cafe they provide catering services as well. They have an additional location behind Aldo's Restaurant on Winchester Boulevard and Knowles.
