NU Cafe - Worcester, Massachusetts

NU Cafe (now NU Kitchen) is a wonderful place to sip an organic coffee, refuel with a real smoothie after a workout, or enjoy a healthy nutrient packed lunch. We stopped in NU Cafe for a cup of organic coffee/Mocha before a trip to the Worcester Art Museum. The menu looked really tempting, however, it was too early for lunch and I’m not a big breakfast fan. Mike did try a muffin, which he said was great. The organic/fair trade coffee was absolutely delicious and I loved the rustic mugs!

A cozy setting

The inside of the cafe is really nice with a fireplace in the dining area, comfortable seating, and a separate computer hangout area if you need quieter place to read/get work done. There is free Wi-Fi, books to read, and magazines to browse through during your visit.

Healthy food that tastes good!

After the art museum we decided to return to NU Cafe to try out the tempting menu. I debated between a Quinoa bowl (my favorite) and a wrap. In the end, I choice the Grilled Veggie Wrap. This wrap consisted of a multitude of vegetables including: carrots, spinach, mushroom, onions, hummus, and yogurt in a whole grain wrap. I skipped the feta cheese and corn on my wrap.

Sandwiches are served with tortilla chips and salsa and a pickle. I opted for a bag of Pita Chips over the tortilla chips. The sandwich was on the smaller side, but nevertheless filling and delicious!

Mike ordered the Buffalo Chicken Wrap which consisted of a tortilla stuffed with breaded chicken, romaine lettuce, and blue cheese. He loved it!

In the morning hours, NU serves breakfast burritos and bowls, sandwiches, superfood waffles, and avocado toast. Vegans can enjoy various egg-free entrees such as a Harvest Tofu Scramble and a burrito featuring Impossible sausage. Smoothies, juiced drinks, and acai bowls are the perfect cool down during the warmer months. Lunch includes various grain bowls, salads, sandwiches and wraps, and paninis. Options to substitute tofu or vegan chicken means there are plenty of options for everyone. Check out the full NU menu.

On our next visit to Worcester, Mike and I will definitely be back for another delicious lunch at NU Cafe. I am looking forward to that delicious mug of organic coffee and possibly a Quinoa bowl!
