Not for birthday parties, this is a bookish, contemplative café ideal for quiet conversation. The menu changes regularly and touts local and artisanal producers with a big emphasis on seasonal greens, grains (wheat berries, quinoa) and sustainable meat products.

A market selling regionally made pickles, granola, preserves and such is incorporated into the homey space.
