New Menu | Historic Nile Theater Introduces New Logo and Updated Cafe

Posted on: January 16th, 2018 by Taryn Jeffries No Comments

The Historic Nile Theater in Downtown Mesa is receiving a fresh face for 2018. It is launching a modern logo and website that integrates the music venue and cafe under one name and brand image. It will also be the foundation of Main Street renovation efforts from the City of Mesa.

Historic Nile Theater Introduces New Logo and Updated CafeOn Wednesday, February 28 at 10:30 a.m., Mesa Mayor John Giles will be on hand for a ceremonial groundbreaking to kick off the renovation. Plans include opening up the street-front facade with a contemporary take on the original theater marquee.

The cafe will also have $5 Reggies available all day. The Reggie is a crowd favorite grilled vegan cheese sandwich.

The cafe formerly recognized as Volstead Public House will become The Nile Cafe. It will go on to spotlight a near-100 percent plant-based menu of pastries, sandwiches and salads. Donovan developed the menu based on her non-meat diet when vegan choices were less freely accessible.

Dishes include The Squawker Texas Ranger ($9.99) with vegan chicken drenched in buffalo sauce, My Boy Blue Sandwich ($9.99) with blueberry BBQ fried chicken, and The Philly ($8.50) with vegan steak sauteed in green and yellow peppers, onions and the cafe’s special marinade. The cafe also has daily scones and pastries, coffee, tea and beer.

“These groups bring back a lot of memories from coming to The Nile when I was in high school and college, and now as the owner,” she said.

Something that’s under-advertised about wine is that Syrah (aka Shiraz) creations can vary almost as much as Pinot Noirs. Although this has a lot to do with where the grapes were grown, the winemaker has a huge role to play in the ultimate style and character of a vintage. One of these Syrah (Rhone... Read More
