Lively Café’s 25th Anniversary

It’s hard to believe, but the Lively Café has been serving the Tallahassee community for 25 years! During the month of September, look forward to special menu items and weekly customer drawings marking this special milestone of this thriving outreach ministry.

These specials begin after Labor Day, and include Chef Fran’s favorite sandwich, the “Franwich!” Additionally, each time customers order at the Café in September, they will be invited to fill out a drawing slip. On Fridays (beginning September 8), we’ll draw a winner from the week’s entries!

Join us as we celebrate the Café’s 25th anniversary during worship on Sunday, September 10. If you volunteered with us at any point over the last 25 years, make sure you’re at our 10 AM service so we can recognize your contribution, enjoy some anniversary cake together, and celebrate our amazing Culinary Director Fran Doxsee!

After 25 Years … we’re making a few changes!

As we begin celebrating the Lively Café’s 25th anniversary this month, look for some exciting changes to our menus. All of your favorite items are sticking around, but you will find these items on different weeks! Please bear with us as everyone gets to know the new Lively Café menus. Click the graphic below to view all four menus (blue, yellow, green, and red).

We’ve flip-flopped some items in order to provide you with a more time-efficient lunch experience.

Our new menus take effect after Labor Day! They rotate weekly and feature a delicious mix of salads, sandwiches, and desserts. Have no fear, there will still be amazing weekly specials. On Friday afternoons, our online order site is updated with the next menu in the rotation and the lineup of featured family dinners for takeout, as well as the week’s special soups, desserts, and a unique panini sandwich!

We are so proud of how this ministry has grown since it was established back in 1998. Here’s to another 25 years, Tallahassee!
