Your stomach will be thrilled that school is in session at this unique, themed cafe. LunchBoxEats puts a unique twist on classic soul food dishes in a fun schoolhouse setting. Their version of a pulled pork sandwich includes Cajun turkey, smoked duck and molasses pulled chicken and is served with a cherry barbecue sauce. Or, try the Class Valedictorian - a juicy turkey burger with garlic herb cheese and special sauce on housemade cornbread toast. 

Entrees come on compartmentalized trays, and the menu is written on a chalkboard. You can order by taking your "quiz," and hand it off to your server to get "graded." While you're waiting for your food, take advantage of Lunchbox's lemonade of the day. Popular choices include carmelized pineapple, peach and guava.
