Fresh sandwiches, salads and soups are served daily at Twigs Café. Our staff places an emphasis on locally-sourced ingredients in season, and is committed to supporting local agriculture and the farm-to-table movement.
Twigs is open Tuesday through Sunday, and holiday Mondays, from 11am-3pm.
The café is open to members and non-members alike. (Admission to the café is included in membership, and in the admission paid by non-members at the front gate.)
We offer seasonal dining on the terrace, with its magnificent view of Wachusett Reservoir and Wachusett Mountain. During the cooler months, guests are served in the Great Hall, warmed with a glowing fire in the grand fireplace.
A sample of our seasonal lunch menu can be found here. Please note that our menu is subject to change based on availability of local ingredients and season. Children are always welcome at Twigs! Please take a look at our Children’s Menu.
