The Cafe at the House of the Seven Gables is Open... again!

The Gables is pleased to announce the grand opening of The Café at The House of the Seven Gables located in the Visitor Center in the historic Rose Tea Room (1910).

The café is operated by William Laganas, a restaurateur and caterer with over 20 years of experience and Mike Tracy who brings years of experience from the Boston Convention Center. Mr. Laganas’ primary business is Lynn Meatland, a butcher shop and market with a full service kitchen offering lunch and dinner daily as well as catering. “My vision is to make The Café at The House of the Seven Gables a destination for both visitors and locals alike”, says Mr. Laganas, “What better place to sit and enjoy lunch then the beautiful gardens and waterfront?”

A café has been on-site at The House of the Seven Gables since the 1920’s when Caroline Emmerton opened her tearoom and offered tea, finger sandwiches and pastries to museum visitors. Today visitors are treated to a more diverse menu ranging from hot dogs & hamburgers to gourmet salads, soups, wraps and grilled Panini sandwiches. In an effort to remain affordable to families working within a travel budget, all sandwiches and salads range in price between $5.50 and $7.75. The café also offers box lunch options at competitive pricing to group tours visiting the museum.

“We are very excited to have the café re-open," says Amy Waywell, Director of Visitor Services, “Not only is it a terrific amenity to our guests, but we hope it will encourage our neighbors to come in for lunch and enjoy our beautiful grounds.”

The café is open during the museum’s regular business hours and open until 11pm Friday and Saturday nights during October for the Spirits of the Gables and Legacy of the Hanging Judge programs.
