Made to order Omelets, personalized Sandwiches from the Deli Bar, fresh Salad Bar, Homemade Soups and Freshly made Desserts…there’s something for everyone.

Our focus is always on sourcing fresh, local produce and meats whenever possible. We offer a wide variety of menu options that should suit your dietary needs and hope you will share some of your own family’s recipes with us. Need a special diet? Let us know.
