Oroblanco grapefruit will blow your mind. They are sweet, juicy and not nearly as acidic as most ‘ruby’ grapefruits you see at the grocery store. We’re running them under the broiler with a little brown sugar and candied ginger to give them a bit of a brulee’d top. The heat brings out the juice in the fruit and it’s like spooning into the best grapefruit you’ve ever wished for! Add some homemade granola and Greek yogurt to make the perfect spring breakfast!
We also are bringing back the always popular Strawberry Mint Lemonade with strawberries from Valdivia Farms and mint from Jaime Farms.
Some other updates from our old friends…
Our blood oranges went to Laura Ann’s Jams – She’s gonna bust out a custom batch for us! Will keep you posted when it comes in.
Enough of you have asked if we sell our coffee and guess what? Now we do! 12 oz bags of whole bean Blue Bottle Blend coffee roasted fresh for us by City Bean coffee are now ready for you to take home and enjoy!

Dan Chak is the founder of Small Farm Fresh and he has come up with the brilliant idea of connecting local, small scale farmers to restaurants and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of this new adventure. To have a service that connects local farmers markets directly is not only a time saver but also a great way for the farmers to expand their clientele so we all can get healthier, fresher, and sustainable products. Here’s a link to his site:
This Sunday we will be getting our first order delivered! Blood oranges, oroblanco grapefruits and beautiful organic blueberries and strawberries are all coming straight from the farmers market to our door Sunday morning. Still thinking through the possibilities…maybe just a great bowl of fresh fruit and some yogurt? Oroblanco with a caramelized top of a little honey and brown sugar? Blood orange, beet and Brie salad? Organic blueberry pancakes with maple syrup? Macerated strawberries with a little fresh mint on top of your French toast?
Guess you’ll just have to show up and see what we come up with!
See you Sunday!

Laura Ann’s Jams are back!
Maple Pumpkin Butter
Peachy Queen (peach, gran marnier & vanilla)
We’ve added pumpkin oatmeal to the specials this week – topping it with some of the maple pumpkin butter and dried cranberries and spiced with cloves, cinnamon and ginger. (I would show you a picture of said oatmeal, but taking an appetizing photo of oatmeal is harder than you’d think. If I can find a way to make it look spectacular I will most certainly post it, but my food porn photography skills are limited :)
