Established in 1998, the Longbranch Café and Bakery is the hub of Carbondale, a small college town in Southern Illinois. Leading the farm to table movement, the Longbranch provides their community with values-driven, handmade food. Recognized as a Delicious Destination by the State of Illinois Department of Tourism, the Longbranch serves three vegetarian meals a day, seven days a week. With two teeming pastry cases, an espresso bar and an organic juice bar, the Longbranch is a true contemporary melting pot where doctors mingle with college students and church ladies rub shoulders with the LGBTQ crowd.
