Mixed Plates caters to wide variety of tastes
In August, area residents were invited to expand their palates at a new eatery in town — Mixed Plates.
Owner Gina Miller said the perfect opportunity fell into place, and she “took a leap of faith” to open Mixed Plates inside the Glacial Hills Business Resource Center at 913 Dakota Street in Sabetha.
“It has always been a dream of mine to own my own business; however, I didn’t think it would happen this soon!” Miller said. “I consider food to be an art, and I find I am most creative when I have the freedom to curate a variety of dishes.”
The offerings at Mixed Plates cater to a crowd of people who are looking for something a little different.
“I have noticed that many people struggle with health issues and beliefs that require a specific diet,” Miller said. “Oftentimes, these individuals have difficulties eating out. I want to fill this gap by offering tasty, wholesome and flavorful foods. I wanted a cafe where I could share my vision by offering an inviting atmosphere where everyone feels welcome.”
Mixed Plates offers a variety of coffee, tea, juice and sparkling soda — using fresh ingredients that are in season particularly for the juices and sparkling sodas. October menu items include Butternut Squash Soup, Thai Chicken Noodle Soup, Mediterranean Wrap and Taco Salad.
“I also feel like people are hungry for cuisine from around the world, so I strive to offer those options as well,” Miller said. “I have always been interested in different foods and find that it is one of my creative outlets. My parents have always cooked, baked and experimented with food, so it is part of who I am.”
Hours for Mixed Plates are 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
