Yay, warm weather has arrived.
The cafe garden is digging it ...

As mentioned last week, we are honing our beer menu down to a select few that go with our eclectic menus and we have completed that this week.


Also, I was able to score 10 pounds of Spaghetti Nero ... black squid ink spaghetti. It will be featured this weekend on two nights with Sundays jacked-up with stuffed squid.
There will also be some new dishes and some cafe favorites with a little tweaking.


Friday night features a Thai-Mex dish with fresh Corvina with savory flavor notes from the two countries. A Vietnamese inspired pork dish with rice noodles is also in the mix, along with tamarind chicken served with chilled noodles with spicy peanut sauce.

Saturday night, a cafe favorite of Spaghetti al Nero with shrimp and house made Nduja. Another favorite served is wild Sockeye salmon cakes with fresh Kaffir lime with Kimchi pancakes. Last, but, not least ... our pork back ribs with Bangkok flavor notes.

Sunday night, another squid ink pasta dish with squid stuffed with shrimp and pork. Following that is a new pasta dish with artichoke pasta with spice lamb meatballs and finishing the night, our house shrimp Pad Thai with wild Mexican white shrimp.

We strongly request you call and reserve your choice with your reservation or before reservation day if booked in advance. Since each night is a different menu, we don't prepare mass quantities and hope it sells ... food is not rolled over into the next days menus. I shop daily and prep for that night's reservations only. 
For vegetarian/vegan or dietary restrictions, we need advance ( 24 hours ) notice.
Just a helpful insider tip!
