Our Southern Virginia Inspired menu features many of the owners’ family recipes, while incorporating a distinct “Southern California” influence as well. An impressive bakery case of freshly baked croissants, danishes, cinnamon buns, southern bread pudding, cupcakes, cookies, French macarons and cake truffles offers guests a huge array of options. The welcoming rustic-industrial décor is a great place to sit an enjoy your selection alongside a “Mighty Fine Cup o’Joe” or loose-leaf tea… all organic of course! Outdoor dining under the pink umbrellas is also available, as well as “dog parking” for our 4-legged friends! And because we know it’s hard to get completely away from it all… we offer free WiFi and welcome you to mix business with pleasure.
