Beth’s Parkview Cafe celebrated its grand opening on Friday, Oct. 19. Owner and operator Beth Powers, center in white apron, was joined by friends, family, local officials and members of the Westfield Community Chamber of Commerce in cutting the ribbon officially opening the cafe for business.
Beth's Parkview Caf is the newest eatery on the main strip in Westfield and is a welcome addition to the Westfield business community. The business opened its doors on Sept. 5 and Beth Powers has been delighting the community with her homemade recipes including her ever popular baked oatmeal.
"It's definitely a favorite breakfast here at the caf," Powers said. "Including cream, granola, sugared walnuts and maple glaze topping, it's one of my best creations."
Beth's Parkview Caf features homemade soups as well as your choice of Italian or cracked wheat bread made daily. Her homemade bread has become so popular she takes individual orders for loafs each day. She also takes orders for baked goods including muffins and pies. The most popular selling sandwich on the menu is the tomato and pesto Panini.
"My Panini maker is my best friend," Powers said.
Prior to opening the caf, Powers ran the local soup kitchen at the Episcopal Church in Westfield for nearly five years. It is there she said she attained her cooking know how as well as truly gained a love for feeding people.
"Even though I don't work at the soup kitchen anymore, some of my regulars from there still stop in to see what is going on at the caf," Powers said. "I am happy to continue to feed them. Having my caf right here in Westfield helps to keep me connected to the community. By joining the Chamber of Commerce, I feel like I am contributing and giving back to Westfield."
Beth's Parkview Caf is open six days a week, Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Special orders may be placed ahead of time by calling 326-3600. Beth's Parkview Caf daily menu can be found on its Facebook page.
