Metro Café in White Plains


Remember John’s on Main Street? It’s now the Metro Café. The deli, which has been feeding downtown White Plains breakfast and lunch for years, is under new management and has added tables and a large selection of baked goods, all of which are made in house.

The bakery case features cheese, apricot, cherry, pineapple and cinnamon crumb Danish, cookies that can be bought by the pound, and muffins galore. Need bagels on Sunday morning? They make those, too, and have all the regulars from plain to everything, and flavored cream cheese to go with them. Don’t worry, they still make wraps, sandwiches, paninis and serve off the hot grill. They also didn’t give up the salad bar or the hot food buffet, which costs $5.99 a pound.

Details: 258 Main St., White Plains. 914-946-0336. Hours: 6 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, 6 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday.
