Mustard goes blue for Autism Speaks

posted on March 17th, 2015 by Melinda Race

Don't panic - it's not the stuff inside the bottle that's going blue. Starting April 1, 2015, French’s 100% Natural Classic Yellow Mustard bottle wrappers are going blue in support of “Autism Awareness Month,” and Bristol Farms' Café and Catering teams are in full support! We have proudly partnered with French’s to bring awareness by offering our customers the blue wrapped mustard bottles in every cafe and catering event during the month of April. The new look of the classic yellow French's bottle will be displayed on our cafe tables.

TGIFF Movement & Fish Sandwich Special

posted on February 19th, 2015 by Melinda Race

Have you heard of the TGIFF movement? I think most of us are very familiar and fond of the phrase "thank goodness it's Friday," especially after a long work week. But, there is a new phrase going around - one that has been developed in an effort to increase seafood awareness, healthy appetites, and a reminder to incorporate seafood into the diet at least once a week. The "Thank Goodness It’s Fish Friday" campaign is lead by Bristol Farms' partner and supplier of our “Fish Sandwich” Cod, served in our cafes. Seafood is a lean protein with many health benefits.  In fact, the USDA recommends eating at least two servings of seafood per week.  Seafood protects the heart, boosts immunity, and sharpens memory, plus much, much more.   In support of the seafood campaign, we are serving our delicious Fish Sandwich special during lunch hour every Friday for just $7.99! Our authentic Fish Sandwich is made using an English-style ale battered Cod - mild, white, tender and flaky… Read More

The Perfect Pair – Grilled Cheese & Tomato Bisque

posted on January 21st, 2015 by Melinda Race

Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup is the perfect match made in America. Tomato soup was first created by Maria Parloa in 1872 in Boston, and it wasn't until 1897 when Joseph A Campbell’s recipe for condensed tomato soup made it extremely popular. The modern version of the grilled cheese was created in the 1920’s when inexpensive sliced bread and American cheese became easily available.  It was nicknamed the cheese dream during the great depression. Originally, it was an open-face sandwich, but the top of the bread became famous in the 60’s. The grilled cheese sandwich is a classic American comfort food, but it has definitely grown up throughout the years!  Traditionally most comfortable at home on the dining table alongside a bowl of tomato soup, the grilled cheese sandwich now finds itself in places it never thought it would be: chic bistros, posh restaurants, and exclusive hotels. For decades the grilled cheese remained relatively unchanged.  One bite of the warm gooey… Read More

A healthy breakfast choice for you ! 3 egg whites, 2 turkey sausage patties, 3 slices of melon and rye toast for only $6.49!   February is heart healthy month, after all, and there's no better time to feature our heart healthy breakfast in our cafes. What makes this breakfast heart healthy? Riboflavin, that’s essential for cell growth, is abundant in egg whites. Besides this, the calorie content of egg whites is as little as 20 calories and these calories aren’t derived from harmful fats but from proteins, sodium, and carbohydrates. The folate present in egg whites is also good for the health of your heart. There are as many as 40 different types of proteins present in egg whites that are essential for your health.   Although eggs are regarded as rich sources of cholesterol, egg whites have almost no cholesterol. However, a substance found in egg whites can negate the adverse effects of the cholesterol present in egg yolks. This makes the consumption of a whole egg… Read More
