Our Food

At the opening of our restaurant, in early 2013, we hope to be

95% California ingredients, 85% ingredients within 250 miles, 50% organic and 100% clean for all food we serve.

Our seasonal soups change all the time... whatever we feel like making for the day! No matter what we make, they are always topped with specially chosen ingredients specific to that soup and served fresh to you.
