2006 Best Lunch, Berkshires

Jonathan’s Casual Cuisine

It’s a rare country cafe that has cross-demographic appeal. Somehow, the Source pulls it off. Maybe the vegan bacon and organic tofu are the common draw, though we suspect it’s the full menu of soups, salads, hot and cold sandwiches, and wraps—the grilled-chicken-cashew is particularly noteworthy—that has wannabe beatniks, local contractors, and wealthy women of a certain age tucking into their lunches at the tearoom’s Lenox Shops location.
