An offshoot of the Surfas Restaurant Supply & Gourmet Food shop, this casual café serves breakfast and lunch dishes that incorporate artisan ingredients from the adjacent store. A whimsical walkway decorated with imprints of kitchen tools leads to the entrance of the restaurant, which contains chalkboard menus, a handful of wooden tables, and glass display cases filled with freshly baked cookies and lavender-lemon bars. During the warmer months, a shaded outdoor patio provides additional seating. Menu options range from homemade breakfast biscuits to signature sandwiches like the “ultimate grilled cheese”: white cheddar, fontina, and blue-cheese mayo on pecan-raisin bread.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
