The chefs finesse everything from grown-on-site herbs and local vegetables to hormone-free beef and fresh fish. Special emphasis is placed on offering gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian-friendly menu selections. Founder and proprietor Arthur Gordon also knows other patrons enjoy chicken and beef as well.

The absolute must-try menu item is venerable staple Morgan Street Chicken. The dish comprises a tender breast filet marinated in a too-good-to-be-legal lemon tahini dressing and then coated with crushed roasted cashews and cracker crumbs. Salivating yet?
Although I’ve yet to experience the weekend brunch, tempting selections like frittatas, crepes and omelets are worthy of exploration.
Except Mondays, when the café is closed, talented local musicians perform nightly and during brunch on Sundays. Genres range from jazz and folk to bluegrass and classical guitar, and the dance floor fills up each Saturday evening.
