The East Branch, Roxbury tomatoes, garlic and basil, to Hawaiian with ham and pineapple, and chicken pesto with grilled chicken, roasted red peppers and basil pesto. For gourmands, the Boni- face Special with meatballs, pepperoni, sausage, black olives, broccoli, onions, green peppers and mushrooms is a real treat. The East Branch serves traditional breakfast choices – omelets, pancakes and French toast – but also specialties such as eggs benedict, huevos rancheros and breakfast burritos. For lunch, there is an array of paninis, sandwiches and burgers that range in price from $4.29 to $7.99. A couple of the house specials are the Catskill Melt burger, which is topped with sauteed onions, portabella mushrooms, cheddar, bacon and barbecue sauce; and "Pauly's Italian Special Heroes," which include a choice of homemade meatballs, chicken, eggplant or sausage and onions, topped with mozzarel- la and marinara sauce. There are also twists on lunch favorites such as the Cuban and Russian paninis and Reuben sandwich. Although the East Branch doesn't neces- sarily cater to non-meat eaters, there are a variety of vegetarian-friendly options, as well as vegan dishes like the Rachel the Vegan panini with roasted red peppers, grilled portabella mushrooms and roasted garlic humus. Dinner is ordinarily served Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday – and Sun- day if the following Monday is a holiday. Dinner choices include Italian dishes like chicken Parmesan, baked ziti and shrimp scampi; and "Katie's Favorites," which in- clude chicken cordon bleu, the steak of the day and chopped steak with grilled onions and bleu cheese garlic butter. There are no alcoholic beverages for sale, but you can bring your own. Different homemade desserts are avail- able each day, and can include cakes, pies and cookies, or the much sought-after cheesecake. � Story and photos by Simona David THE EAST BRANCH | 53657 Main St., Roxbury | (607) 326-7763 | Breakfast and lunch from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., Wednes- day through Sunday, Dinner from 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday and Monday, and from 4 to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
