Many of the salad ingredients are grown in a garden behind the Eastside Cafe -- you can't get much fresher than that. The crisp taste and texture will have you considering your own backyard salad garden. The Thai Chicken Salad with Asian Vinaigrette is a substantial -- and delicious -- entree. Romaine and green leaf lettuce are tossed with cherry tomatoes, carrots, red cabbage, and marinated grilled chicken and topped with toasted peanuts and dressing. Seasonal home-grown vegetables also show up in the Garden Vegetable Enchiladas. As an appetizer or a light meal, the Baked Brie with Apple Chutney is a standout -- sweet and cheesy with a hint of savory oomph. Extensive vegan and gluten-free menus are also available.
