Hello, Tardis!
Blue Box Cafe has all of the trimmings to delight a Dr. Who fan. Tardis, a Weeping Angel, a Snowman and more Dr. Who elements bring the popular show alive for guests. Plus, you can sit for a spell and catch an episode running on cafe televisions. Of course, Blue Box is a cafe and coffee bar and appropriately has some Dr. Who-themed treats. We stopped in for lunch and found a full menu of salads, sandwiches and soups. Plus, plenty of coffee and tea creations. So, Blue Box easily makes for a nice spot for a bite.

For the sandwiches, you can either order a specific creation or craft your own from a sizable range of ingredients. We did not order salads on this go around, but the ones served appeared to have a healthy portion sizes.
