The Castle: A Board Game Cafe 


PHOTOGRAPH by Sarah Phillips


Looking for an alternative to family monopoly around the dinner table? The Castle mixes a traditional cafe with an expansive library of board games from all genres. If you’ve seen or played it, they have it. Questions on rules or board game strategy? Consult their staff expert, the Game Master.  And while you contemplate world domination in Risk or sweat through a heated game of backgammon, enjoy the delicious paninis and refillable popcorn. Hint: Try the hot chocolate latte with cinnamon and cayenne pepper.
