our food philosophy

All of our menu items are prepared from scratch in small batches. We take pride in the fact that are our food is of the highest quality and made with care by people, not machines.

our new approach to catering...

We have recently renovated the shop. We are responding to customer demand by streamlining our menu so that we can expand our in-store entertaining menu options, such as our party-sized entrees, brunch items and ready to bake hors d'oeuvres. Accordingly, we will no longer be offering "plattered catering" so that the store can be stocked at all times with our expanded line of products, which do not require advanced ordering.

By making these changes, our goal is to make life easier for our customers when they are entertaining (especially at the last minute!) as advanced ordering is not required.

We would be happy to help you put together a menu. Please come into the shop and any of our store associates would be pleased to assist you and offer suggestions.
