Seasonal Secrets

pick a menu



local food

What we mean by local food is utilizing the local farmers markets and produce sellers to bring the freshest ingredients to your plate. This idea is rather revolutionary at the moment and we hope other establishments follow our lead in the future.


We are lucky to be in a very welcoming area filled with local customers. Our neighbors understand our seasonal menus as well as the necessity to change our menus on a weekly basis to create meals around the local produce available at the time. We love you guys,

clean food movement

The clean food movement is an idea to keep food as fresh and unprocessed as its natural state. This includes buying all organic fruits, meat that is is free range, and products that are not packed with the pesticides, preservatives, and dangerous chemicals that have been plaguing our food system since the mid 1900's
