La Grande Orange Cafe

Perfect For:BYOB

Le Grande Orange Cafe isn’t the most memorable meal in town - or even in the fully functioning train platform it’s located in (that honor goes to its neighbor, Luggage Room Pizzeria) - but it is one of the only places within a 10-mile radius that has a very reasonable corkage fee. And sometimes, that’s all you need.
