What's Cookin'

The Shammie, as we call it, is a beautiful green in color due to the prominence of spinach serving as the base of the smoothie. We also add mango & pineapple fruit, agave and coconut water for electrolytes. This healthy, pick-me-up, tropical delight has a full serving of spinach topped with sliced strawberries.

Our Pimiento Cheese is a delicious, unconventional cheese dish with a surprising twist! It’s chunky in nature and features vegan cream cheese, vegan shredded cheeses and Chef B’s choice to use sundried tomato in place of traditional pimiento. The result is a delicious, savory cheese spread, perfect with a bowl of soup, as a side salad or an awesome sandwich on your favorite bread.

These tempting treats are made from scratch and baked with nostalgic love. Sweet Dolley Marie’s baked goods deliver a homemade taste that reckons back to days gone by. Red Velvet brownies are rich, decadent and vegetarian.

    positive review  Now open for pick up and eat OUT in the garden patio where everything has been arranged for social distancing. Vegetarian—make it vegan without the cheese. Everything is Over The Moon.

    positive review  ESL is the cutest little hidden gem! Tucked away in an unassuming shopping center is a lovely, tiny, inclusive space with a small menu of vegan and gluten free meals and snacks, including the Impossible Burger and at least 3 varieties of avocado toast, almost everything locally and regionally sourced. The owner is super sweet and usually present, and she keeps the place spotless and charming. The patio is unexpectedly neat, set up along a corridor with a garden and lots of eccentric decoration. If you’re looking for an unpretentious, progressive spot to grab breakfast, lunch, or a smoothie, don’t miss this one!

  • negative review  The first bad experience we have had here. My mom’s tomato soup looked like marinara sauce. My daughter and I had the bean soup and the beans were not cooked but we had ordered the lentil soup. It seemed the staff was having hard time at lunch. We had ordered the curry lentil soup and all he could say it was labeled as that but it was the bean soup.
