The Tavern Cafe´ recently opened in Rice’s Hotel/Hughlett’s Tavern, 73 Monument Place, Heathsville.

The Tavern volunteers are doing all the cooking themselves inside the Tavern kitchen, reported manager Corrine Becker. Proceeds benefit Rice’s Hotel/Hughlett’s Tavern.

The Tavern Cafe´ will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. The restaurant will serve homemade soup and fresh-baked bread, said Becker. Scones and other sweet treats will also be available, plus beverages. Eat in or take-out.

After lunch, patrons are invited to shop the Heritage Arts Center gift shop, which sells hand-crafted gifts and cards, all made by local artisans, she added.
