Celebrate National Picnic Day


There were a number of businesses that operated at 1110 Maple Way before Jackson was graced with Persephone’s sister cafe: Picnic. Since then, Picnic has been serving up fresh, delicious food and beverage items all day, every day. This location, with its wall of windows and variety of seating options, is bright and airy, the perfect spot for a solo morning coffee, breakfast with friends, or a lunch meeting. picnic

Meeting the standard set by Persephone, a meal at Picnic is guaranteed to be an elevated one. Breakfast classics, like a simple granola parfait, are transformed at Picnic by simple, delish ingredients. At Picnic, a granola parfait is: Persephone quinoa granola, Greek yogurt, lemon curd and micro greens. Select between an admirable array of sweet and savory toasts, featuring that incredibly fresh and delicious Persephone bread we all know and love. And when it comes to breakfast sandwiches, Picnic has carefully chosen combinations that are so good, we can’t believe they’re $10 and under. Of course, there’s always the option to keep it simple with a fresh pastry from their beautiful display.

“Picnic: a noun, a state of mind, and now, a café.”

Picnic supports a theme that is true to the Jackson lifestyle: adventure outdoors, and pair those outings with equally incredible food. For this reason, Picnic is celebrating National Picnic Day, April 23, with the JH Picnic Giveaway. Since a Monday in April in Jackson Hole can be unpredictable, weather wise, Picnic will help you celebrate with an occasion that includes a four night stay at an Outpost condo that sleeps six! Already a $2,400 value, on top of that, their outfitting you with Stio’s Wilcox men’s jacket, a Stio women’s sweater fleece hoodie jacket, a bonfire stove, and a picnic basket full of Picnic and Persephone goodies. Yogi Bear always loved a good “pic-a-nic basket,” and he would surely envy this one if he was a Jacksonite. Inside, the lucky winner will receive: $250 in Picnic and Persephone swag, as well as $300 in gift certificates to Picnic, Persephone, and PersephoneBakery.com.

Want your meal from Picnic on the go? Perhaps a salad or sandwich from their lunch menu, filled with flavors and textures that celebrate your taste buds. Now, you can pre-order your food online through the Picnic website for easy pickup. For the smart phone savvy customer, Picnic is now a part of the Persephone local’s line app. Simple download the app, choose your location, the items you would like to pick up, and pay for them on the app. You can customize your order just as you would in person, with size options on coffees, special requests, etc. The local’s line makes getting your Picnic goodies fast convenient, and so easy. picnic

The point is, Picnic is so much more than a café. Besides their menu of food and coffee items, they have a grab and go area with premade items. They also serve wine and cocktails. Looking for a gift? There registers are surrounded by prepackaged items, like cookies, homemade marshmallows, specialty chocolates, and all the tools for your favorite coffee connoisseur. For the holidays, they mix things up with seasonal items- coal for Christmas, chocolate dipped pink marshmallows for Valentine’s Day, and more. We love Picnic, and if you don’t already, you will to.
