Fodor's Review

Apple crumble French toast; roasted butternut squash and tofu hash; grilled Portobello sandwich with overnight-roasted tomato mayo served on ciabatta. Those are some of the favorites at this local gem, whose menu adjusts with the seasons to ensure the freshest ingredients possible, most of them locally sourced. Together with the cheerful repurposing of an auto parts building, shelves fashioned out of reclaimed wood, and a serious recycling effort, you get way more than just a meal here. You get the philosophy of owners Lori and Tom Hartz to live more lightly—and we say tastier too.
