With an emphasis on seasonal ingredients, Twigs Café sources directly from our farmers whenever possible to ensure the freshest ingredients. Choose from an ever-rotating selection of hearty sandwiches, fresh salads and hot soups prepared daily.

Our commitment to seasonality is reflected in our seating. In warmer weather, enjoy dining on the terrace, with expansive views of Wachusett Reservoir and Wachusett Mountain. During the cooler months, guests are served in the Great Hall, warmed with a wood-burning fire.
