In addition to Starbucks-brand coffee, the A&A Café's menu features muffins and bagels, soups, sandwiches and occasional salads. A rotating list of "Daily Specials" includes homemade favorites such as cranberry almond chicken salad; Sandie's famous tuna salad; yogurt parfait; flourless peanut butter cookies and strawberry shortcake. The A&A Café also serves beer.

Patrons can meet Sandie Shrear, our in-house culinary expert. Prior to her tenure at North Shore Senior Center, Sandie operated two of her own businesses—Just Desserts by Sandie and Silver Plum Catering. She also spent 13 years managing a restaurant in a large office building. 

We hope you stop by for a bite soon!
