“Love is space and time measured by the heart.” – Proust
Here is what we have going on this week, Monday, February 8 – Saturday, February 13:
On Saturday, February 13, we’ll be serving a special brunch from 10am – 2pm. Grab your sweetheart and treat them to a meal made with local, organic ingredients—no reservations needed. Our special menu will feature heart-shaped biscuits with honey, and a Blood Orange Prosecco Cocktail made with Jack Rudy Grenadine.
Join us on Monday morning from 8:30am – 11:30am for Third Mondays. Spend your morning working on your latest sewing project in the company of fellow sewers. While you’re here, stay awhile for lunch and a free guided tour.
Tickets are available for our Film Screening on February 25. We will be showing a selection of SFA documentaries directed by Joe York. Reserve your seat here, and learn more about the event here.
We are preparing for our next round of café dinners, so mark your calendars and purchase your tickets. You’ll want to be here – we promise.
We’re serving up savory dishes paired with fresh salads and seasonal vegetables every day. (View our Daily Menuhere.) Stay after lunch for a free, guided tour each weekday at 2:00pm. Here you’ll learn about the history of the company and our sustainable manufacturing practices.
