Olive Branch Menu

I don't know why I haven't done this yet, but I all of a sudden had an urge to come up with the menu for the cafe church I'm going to open after I graduate. The goal is mostly simple and delicious comfort food, most of which can be served in a bowl. This what I have so far for the basic menu, and I imagine rotating specials depending on what's in season, and an extensive rotating dessert menu, not to mention coffee and tea drinks and maybe gelatto? Let me know what you think!
