Elk Creek Cafe and Aleworks: Great Food, Great Beer, Great Conversation

Elk Creek Cafe and Aleworks was local a long time before it was trendy. Since 2007, this Rooted-in-Millheim cafe has had strong ties to their community, and local farms. It's a place where the atmosphere is warm and personal, and artists, musicians, farmers, hipsters and craftsmen gather together to enjoying great beer, great food, and great conversation.

They are committed to fresh, locally-sourced food. The menus change seasonally, and the chalkboard features showcase the best that the season has to offer. Their most popular item is the Elk Creek burger which is made from local pasture-raised beef from Hidden Pond Farm. A recent contender for 'most popular dish' has been Chef Erin Snyder's award-winning Bahn Mi sandwich which features 'valley pate', sriracha mayo, quick pickled vegetables and Vietnamese cold noodle salad. Brewer Tim Yarrington creates a wide selection of artisinal brews. The Elk Creek Copper Ale strikes an agreeable balance between malt and hops, and complements their diverse menu offerings. Try one of their seasonal food features paired with an artisanal ale for a one-of-a-kind taste experience in a family friendly environment!

Elk Creek Cafe also serves up live music from Americana to Zydeco, featuring local favorites and national acts. The intimate performance area enhances the connection between performers and the audience. Whether you are looking for craft beer, a dinner out with friends, a relaxed Sunday brunch, or great live music, this is the place.
