A funky little farm-to-table restaurant that has the right idea but falls short on execution. For Sunday brunch, the daily special frittata sounded wonderful but was dry and lifeless. The curried chicken sandwich, which was flavorful and served on great crunchy artisan bread, was a...More

I appreciate the feedback, the frittata should be light and fluffy and the chicken salad should not be salty. I appreciate the feedback, it’s important so that I can make these corrections.

Hi, thanks for the feedback, I love French Press coffee, and it gets expensive if you’re going to order multiple presses. Especially on a breakfast early morning scenario. Let me think about that one. I may offer a second press for free? I’m a coffee...More

When you buy fresh organic ingredients at home, it’s important and so appreciated when dining out. After all that is why we like to dine out for the treat of someone else cooking. The chef gives great attention to fresh seasonal ingredients.

Our Mission Statement By partnering with local growers, our mission is to secure the best, freshest, local, organic-when-possible, ingredients to cook for our customers. Our menu will change regularly to reflect what's best in each season. We have a simple menu for a reason. Instead of purchasing dried pasta, we start with flour and eggs to make our pasta from scratch. Instead of purchasing frozen gnocchi, we peel the potatoes to make our own, fresh, light-and-fluffy, gnocchi. Our chefs create beautiful dishes with flavor that can only come from a recent harvest. When we are unable to secure a local ingredient, we will communicate that to our customers. With the umbrella heading of a farm-to-table restaurant, our chefs are free to create dishes that cross into different ethnic cuisines. However, the majority of our meals are influenced by Italian and American tastes. To celebrate the local community, we also host live music, art exhibitions and meet-the-farmer events. Stop in and say hello!
