Westar Foods, Inc.
We started as a little bread bakery, supplying frshly baked bread to happy customers around town. People loved our bread so much, we couldn't help but evolve into a cafe where we could serve equally remarkable sandwhiches. This, of course, led to delightful sweets, savory panini, fresh salads, and hearty bowls of soups and pasta.
Before we knew it, we were a neighborhood favorite in communities all over--a place to find a warm welcome. Where people can gather with friends or hide out on their own. A place where fresh, innovative food is served up with unsurpassed quality and consistency by passionate employees. A place still dedicated to keeping our neighbors, friends and guests happy, in their special little corner of the world.
