The well known and much-loved Red Onion Café opened with a rush on Wednesday morning that was still going at lunch time. After closing its doors in Burlington due to financial struggles brought on by high rent on Church Street and a pandemic-related drop in business, the sandwich shop is back open at Charlotte Crossings (the former Vermont Wildflower Farm) on Route 7. The breakfast and lunch menus remain the same as in the shop’s previous location, including the famed Red Onion sandwich. Orders can be placed ahead at 425-3194.
