Outpost Natural Foods and Aurora Sinai Medical Center joined forces and The Outpost Market Café opened today in the main lobby at Aurora, 945 N. 12th St.

The Market Café offers a variety of made-from-scratch prepared food items including bakery, sandwiches, soups, salads and entrees. The kiosk also sells hot coffee and tea, juices, a limited selection of fresh and non-perishable staple grocery items like milk and dairy, eggs, produce, bread, bulk items, convenient center aisle foods and bagged coffee.

The kiosk is the first of its kind for The Outpost, which has served Milwaukee since 1970 and today, operates four natural grocery stores.

"Having the new Market Café in the lobby of Aurora Sinai Medical Center creates of hub for both organizations to celebrate their commitment to the goodness of wholesome food and friendly service in a welcoming environment," says Outpost community relations director, Margaret Mittelstadt.
