Sometimes, deciding what to eat for lunch feels like the most difficult choice to make. For the hungry and indecisive, Anytime Café offers a tasty means to a satisfying end with its newest line-up of lunch specials served daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“Ever since we launched our original set of lunch specials, the feedback has been very positive,” says Cindy Wong, who co-owns the restaurant with husband Ken. “We try to offer a variety of foods at a good value.”

Priced at $10.95, each lunch special comes with a choice of soup or salad. Pasta fans will love Chopped Clams and Mushroom Spaghetti, consisting of freshly chopped clams and mushrooms in a light, savory white wine sauce topped with fresh basil.

For those craving something more Asian-inspired, Teriyaki Chicken Bowl is another popular choice. “We marinate and slow-cook a generous portion of chicken thigh in a house teriyaki sauce and serve it over rice with shredded cabbage and green onion,” says Cindy. “Lunchtime crowds are usually more eclectic with a mix of palates, so we try to design our menu accordingly.”

In addition to its daily lunch specials, the restaurant continues to garner praise for its breakfast menu, available weekends from 8 a.m. to noon. “Similar to our lunch menu, our breakfast options also appeal to a variety of cuisine types, including Chinese, American, Japanese and more,” she adds. “Recently, a lot of our customers have been ordering our Mochi Waffle with Fresh Fruit ($8.95), because of its unique take on a traditional waffle dish.”

So regardless of the time or craving, Anytime Café has something for any appetite, anytime.
