The early twentieth century farmhouse that is home to Something Special Café and Catering and the surrounding property has a rich history. The farmhouse once served as a dairy farm - Granby's main source of commerce by the end of the nineteenth century - and at another time was a boarding house for passing travelers.



​Something Special Café serves breakfast and lunch, Wednesday-Sunday, 7am-2pm. Customers may choose to dine indoors in the farmhouse style café with its open concept and traditional historic decor, grab their food to go from the countertop service area, or dine outdoors on the spacious patio surrounded by a white picket fence. 

The Something Special Café menu is inspired by the Live Local and Eat Fresh perspectives. Something Special supports the Be a Local Hero: Buy Locally Grown program of Community Involved in Sustaining Agriculture (CISA) and features Local Heros and other local vendors on their menu. In addition we source meat products from humane sources, without artificial ingredients or additives, no antibiotics, no hormones, and vegetarian fed. We source produce that is pesticide free, non-GMO, and chemical and pathogen free. 

Other unique aspects of our humble establishment that we are excited to share with the residents of Granby and the surrounding communities include paintings of the surrounding farmlands by a local artist hanging in the dining room; menus decorated by the drawings of another local artist; tables dressed with handmade country checkered tablecloths (shoutout to our neighbor Mary Beth!); fresh flowers and landscaping in our patio area; and a gas fireplace at the head of our indoor dining room. 

Something Special will continue its catering service in a more limited capacity, offering hot or oven ready trays for home parties as well as the opportunity to rent our premises for private events in the hours after the café has closed.
