Locally owned and full of personality, Cafe Girasole is a favorite local lunch spot. It's a casual, sit-down cafe with sunny decor that'll make you feel like you're dining in a friend's kitchen. The staff is devoted to friendly customer service, and the cafe has a bunch of offerings for weekday lunch. There are cold sandwiches like the Carson Valley Turkey with a homemade sun-dried tomato spread, cream cheese, turkey and avocado, as well as the Iron Mike, a protein-filled vegetarian favorite packed with power foods. You can also get wraps, salads, fresh, hot soup of the day and renowned paninis like the Minden Village Tuna Melt, Grilled Beef and Brie, and the vegetarian Serendipity with goat cheese, garlic aioli, spinach, roasted tomato and artichoke hearts. Stop in for a smoothie with endless fruit possibilities as well. This is a healthy stop for dine-in lunch or takeout.
