Polka Dot Café Opens at Columbia Trail

Nature enthusiasts who walk or bike the Columbia Trail in High Bridge are in for a treat with the opening of the Polka Dot Café. The café is owned and operated by Christina Lynn Whited, well-known in the area for her longstanding One Spirit Festival, as well as the esoteric classes and spiritual consultations that have defined her for years. She explains, “Our mission is to provide good, basic, comforting food in a warm, fun atmosphere. The overlay of spiritual energy is a bonus for those who are sensitive to the energy.” Besides that, it’s just a great place to get a cup of coffee or tea and relax.

      The Polka Dot Café specializes in breakfast sandwiches as well as grilled cheese, chicken salad and almond or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Artisan soda, ice creams and homemade dog biscuits are made in the café’s kitchen. They locally source as many products as they can and also support local entrepreneurs, selling High Bridge honey, goat milk soap and lotion and organic bug sprays and sun screens.

      The café is open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., but the hours may change depending upon the needs of the clientele. Outdoor seating is available as well as bicycle parking. Grab your sneakers and head on over to the Polka Dot Café on the Columbia Trail!

Location: 76 Main Street, High Bridge. For more information, call 908-638-9066 or visit
