LYNN — Christopher’s Café at 2 Lewis St. has joined the Lynn Area Chamber of Commerce (LACC) with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Owner David Shalvoy said the community has been very supportive of his small breakfast and lunch destination in the heart of the Diamond district. Over the past few years, Shalvoy has expanded the restaurant’s seating capacity, the catering menu and now rents the cafe for private parties up to 45 people.
“We’ve hosted bridal and baby showers and family reunions here,” he said. “If you’re looking for a simple, comfortable, casual location with an artistic flair, great food and service, we can organize a small party to fit your tastes and price. It’s becoming a staple of our business.“
Shalvoy added that catering events is a big part of his business.
“We cater for office parties and family gatherings small and large,” he said. “In addition we participate in many community food tasting events for charitable and non-profit causes.”
Shalvoy joined the chamber to boost the eatery’s promotional efforts.
“The LACC will serve as a marketing arm for our business through their website, eblasts and social media,” he said. “They’ll promote what we do, because we don’t always have the time running a small business.”
Christopher’s Cafe is open Wednesday through Friday, serving food from 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and open until 2 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. To see the menu, go to christopherscafe.net or call 781-596-2200.
