So I had this recipe for a BLUEBERRY-ANCHO Sauce. It is designed for venison, but I don’t know any Deer Hunters. Wanting to use lots of blueberries, I made the sauce and it is De-licious! More savory than sweet (there is chicken stock in it, so it’s not vegetarian) and what a kick!! It’ll go perfectly with this tangy Basque cheese I found, grilled on our Grain Bread. $6.45. Add turkey for $2. By the way, our grain bread is now 100% sourdough, which means no commercial yeast, making it easier to digest and, we think, tastier!
A Monday favorite is back today! CARMELLA’S TUNA SALAD is a fresh, bright alternative to the may-o-naise-based norm. It’s Genoa tuna tossed in a lemon juice and olive oil dressing, along with blanched fresh green beans, grape tomatoes, red onions, egg and fresh basil. Get it on a wrap $8.45, or over greens $9.95.
THAI STEAK BAHN-MI, is a Flank Steak Sandwich on a baguette with homemade peanut sauce, shredded carrots, cucumbers and fresh basil. $9.75
THE IRONIC PULLED PORK SANDWICH, got its name because we now make our own buns for the sandwich (as well as all of our other breads). We’ve determined that the best roll for the sandwich is made with Challah dough. Challah is the traditional bread of the Jewish Sabbath, hence the irony. Served with Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ SAUCE $6.95.
SHE’S BACK! The spicy, Vegan, complex and, we think, very delicious HELLO DHALLY is back again. This dish combines three elements, a coconut milk lentil dhal, a spicy and sweet rice pilaf with lots of fresh ginger, Serrano peppers, currants and peas, and a homemade apple chutney. Those who love it really love it and it’s incredibly healthy! $7.95.
CHOPPED SALAD, with apples, walnuts, carrots, cucumber & basil, tossed in Romaine with our homemade Bleu Cheese dressing $8.25. Add grilled chicken for $3
STACKED TORTE is probably our original special, It’s roasted red & yellow peppers, blanched spinach and artichoke hearts, provolone cheese and kalamata olives, all wrapped in a homemade, brioche-style dough $5.25/veg, $7.25/meat.
The SPICE-RUBBED GRILLED ASIAN CHICKEN WRAPS are a special that goes way back. The charcoal-grilled chicken breasts are rubbed with a homemade spice mix, and the Sesame-Ginger Dressing is a symphony for your taste buds. $7.95/Wrap, $9.95/Salad.
It’s one of the specials that burst out of the crowd. It’s the SIRACHA FOCACCIA CLUB. We start with our homemade, baked this morning, focaccia bread, add turkey, bacon and avocado, plus lettuce & tomato and then the piece de resistance, the homemade, sunflower oil-based Siracha aioli. $8.25
Chilled soups are so 80’s, but we have a lot of Farmer Ted’s local, organic cucumbers, some homemade yogurt, and homegrown mint. Put ‘em all together and you’ve got a remarkably healthy and tasty CHILLED CUCUMBER SOUP. Regular Soups are Creamy Chicken with Wild Rice and Tomato Basil.
Michigan Blueberries are in season! We’re celebrating with BLUEBERRY LIMEADE. We also have MANGO LEMONADE as well as our very popular PINEAPPLE-CUCUMBER MOJITO LIMEADE $3.25.
Someone who should know said that our CHOCOLATE BABKA was the best she’d ever had! It’s a rich brioche-type dough stuffed with chunks of chocolate and then twisted to distribute those chunks $2.50.

KITCHEN SINK COOKIES & CASHEW-ALMOND ENERGY BARS ARE BACK. Plus Pie!
