Sample Menu

This is the menu from our inaugural dinner, held on the 23rd of September – the very first day of Fall!  The dinner selections will always change but this should give you an idea of the types of meals we will offer.

The Next Phase

July 21st of this year we celebrated our 5th anniversary!  We have had amazing support from the neighborhood, neighboring businesses, and our loyal customer base.  Our growth has been almost exclusively from word of mouth, and for that we Thank You.


As we’ve settled into our identity as a “lunch spot,” we’ve made the decision to expand into dinner.  We’ll do it gradually though, starting with roughly twice a month.  The schedule will be posted, and reservations are required (though walk-ins will be taken if possible).  As interest and demand increases we will consider adding dates as needed.


The menu will always be different, set only the week of the event so that we may utilize the freshest ingredients.  We will however maintain a (gluten free) Fried Chicken option with Mashed Potatoes and Gravy.  A seasonally appropriate meat and vegetarian option will also be available.  Please see our Dinner page for slightly more detailed information regarding the menu, beverages, and reservations.


You can expect the same level of quality you’ve come to expect from us, and there’s no question that every item will be house-made.  We will utilize local and/or organic whenever possible, and be sure to highlight our grower/vendor partners when appropriate.


If you would like to be added to our contact list to receive emails about upcoming events, please send your contact information to  We look forward to hearing from you!
