A chain café? No way. Once you visit Café Michelle in Aberdeen, you’ll never set foot in another chain café or coffee house. Café Michelle has the fresh food and exceptional coffee drinks that you would make at home (if you were so inclined). The small food menu focuses on perfecting the classics, with options including just a few sandwiches and salads, plus a soup of the day. The pastry corner is where you can really indulge with everything from grab and go favorites like bagels and muffins, or more fanciful desserts like apple fritters, tiramisu, and cheesecake. The cakes and pies are so good that Café Michelle also offers wholesale versions with just 24 hours’ notice. Your next party or special occasion can even be catered by Café Michelle, and the team has specific meeting menus to cover all of your office needs as well.
Find Café Michelle on North Parke Street, near the intersection of Bel Air Avenue. Stop in weekdays until 3 p.m., or Saturdays until 2 p.m. (closed Sundays).
