The Cupboard Restaurant has been serving up the freshest veggies in town since 1943. We serve breakfast all day, lunch and dinner, and offer a variety of catering options for groups both large and small. The Cupboard is also known for preparing fresh vegan and vegetarian dishes, as we do not use meat products in any of our veggies and many options are egg and cheese-free as well. The Cupboard prides itself on the fact that we have a number of customers who dine with us every single day.
