LA PALOMA: Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice
Our Mission (pdf)
Enjoy globally inspired, simple, sustainable, local food for your mind and body.
The recent remodel of this popular cafe allows for a more in-depth, sustainable menu, improved traffic flow, additional seating and lively décor. The menu is innovative yet simple, with sustainable, local food at its core. Indoor and outdoor seating is available and includes communal tables, banquettes and seating for individual diners. View photos of the new La Paloma here.
The menu offers: local, seasonal, vegan, vegetarian, dairy alternatives and gluten-free items. Foods will be made from scratch in-house whenever possible with high quality “clean ingredients” (no artificial ingredients, additives, sweeteners, colorings or preservatives).
