Top ten things to know...

1. WE ARE A NEIGHBORHOOD BAKERY, CAFE, AND RESTAURANT

2. OPEN FOR BREAKFAST   LUNCH, Wednesday through Saturday, 8 am to 2 pm (lunch starts at 11 am)

3. OPEN FOR DINNER specializing in house made pasta, Friday  &  Saturday starting at 5pm - Be here by 7:30pm!

4. NO RESERVATIONS - Just walk in when you’re hungry, or maybe a little before then

5. ORDER AT THE COUNTER, pay up front, grab a table and chill - We’ll bring your food and drinks

 

6. GIFT CARDS can be purchased online HERE

7. WE DO NOT ACCEPT OR PROMPT YOU FOR TIPS

 

8. WE DO APPLY A  FAIR WAGE CHARGE on sales (the same 20% you’d probably leave anywhere else) which makes it economically possible to pay ALL our employees a living wage - This is a very complex issue that I can’t get into here, but I believe in this model

9. PRETTY PICTURES can be found on our Instagram page

10. WE RARELY ANSWER OUR PHONE and don't encourage to-go orders. Though, if you happen to time it just right or eat here a lot, we'll probably do it
