Fourth of July is given a new and flavorful spin at Holiday Inn & Suites, with a celebration of American favorites reinterpreted and executed at Flavors Cafe.

The spacious yet intimate interiors of Flavors Cafe is the perfect setting for an all-American feast. The convenient layout of the different stations is simple, uncomplicated and easy to navigate, with everything just a few steps away. Kick-off your culinary journey of classic all-American favorites at the Burger Bar...

Single, double or triple patty? At Flavors Cafe's Burger Bar, diners can choose from a variety of fresh-baked buns, toppings, sides, and condiments to create a customized burger, freshly prepared ala minute by the station chefs so you get it hot off the grill. Creating your very own burger is part of the fun at the Burger Bar.


There are countless theories on the origins of the iconic hamburger, but no one can deny the fact that the hamburger has endured the test of time, and to this day, continues to define and represent one facet of American culture embraced by the rest of the world. At Flavors Cafe, one can experience the celebratory vibe of the fourth of July and the richness of America's culinary heritage with a perfectly grilled all-beef patty in a bun. The beef patties at the Burger Bar are thick and juicy, grilled to your preferred doneness. Start with the basic all-beef patty topped with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and cheese on a soft brioche bun...


...or get creative with your very own bespoke burger topped with bacon and egg on a tasty rye bun.
