The Millennium Café, inside the library, offers you a new choice among its fresh, delicious menu. Starting March 16 and on every Wednesday thereafter, the café will serve grass-fed burgers as its special of the day.
Gourmet Burger Wednesdays features 1/3-pound patty of locally raised, grass-fed beef on top a homemade bun, with your choice of accompaniments, including onion, cheese, sauteed mushrooms, bacon, lettuce, tomato and sprouts. The cooked-to-order burgers are served with oven-roasted potatoes. A plate costs $5.95.
The locally raised cattle were fed only on grass, which means the burgers are flavorful, lean and packed with brain-boosting omega 3.
Doug Petrie, owner and chef at the Millennium Café, said adding Gourmet Burger Wednesdays will appeal to both the carnivores and health-conscious alike.
“For those who want the lean, omega 3-packed protein but don’t like fish, our grass-fed burgers offer the solution,” Petrie said. “I want to promote healthy eating, but we’re also appealing to the meat lovers out there who just want to bite into a good, tasty burger.”
Petrie has raised small herds of cattle outside of Topeka for more than 20 years. He’s owned and operated the Millennium Café since it opened in 2000.
Café hours are 8:15-5:30 Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm Saturday and closed on Sunday.
