“LUNCH + DINNER | This is where we usually order our pizza. Artisan/hippie-style pizza, with local, super-fresh ingredients, lovingly put together. The salads are my favorite—every vegetable tastes fresh. They have a few small tables where you can sit and eat in, but it’s mostly take out. Makes for a good picnic! ”
