I went for a preview of their new fall fare last week and enjoyed every bite.
I ordered a couple appetizers, entrees and desserts to get a good taste of the menu. We sampled the following dishes:
ROASTED SEASONAL VEGETABLE BOARD: Avocado Green Goddess Dip & Pimento Cashew Cheese Spread
BUTTERNUT SQUASH PIZZA: Walnut, Smoked Mozzarella, Sweet Onion & Arugula
KALE CRUNCH: Avocado, Grapefruit, Kale, Cabbage, Watercress, Radish, Almond & Chili Garlic Dressing
GRASS-FED BISON BURGER: Umami, Mushroom, Onion, Mayo, Watercress, Parmesan & Flax Seed Bun
FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE CAKE: Cocoa, Vanilla Ice Cream, Almond Butter & Caramel
SQUASH PIE: Coconut Whipped Cream, Graham Sesame Crust
SPARKLING APPLE SODA: Apple, Lemon, Cinnamon, Vanilla & Cane Sugar
AUTUMN SPICED SPARKLING TEA: Cranberry, Lime & Cane Sugar
HONEY BEE GINGER BEER: Ginger Honey, Chai Spice, Lime & Sparkling Water
Everything we tried was delicious. Their attention to detail in every item was on point. This place is seriously a must try. Their food tastes so whole, fresh and vibrant. They really focus on the flavors. My absolute favorites were the butternut squash pizza, the bison burger and the chocolate cake. My favorite soda was the sparkling apple. We also had a tasty latte with our desserts.
I am not even really that big on burgers but I would go back just for the bison burger. The combination of umami with the parmesan flakes on top of bison was mouth watering. I also would have never thought to order a butternut squash pizza but it has a great balance of salty sweet. That chocolate cake was almost a brownie like consistency and layered with caramel sauce and ice cream. Mmm.
