Answers to our most frequently asked questions

Call 773-823-9335 during our Open hours: Tuesday through Sunday, 8:00 am – 2:00 pm.  Be sure you talk directly to one of the staff.

Calling ahead is recommended for more than four persons.  We have only one table that seats 5-6 people as is.  Arrangements for more than six persons should be made at least a day ahead.  Depending on the size of the group we may suggest a limited menu that allows us to serve larger groups in a timely manner.

We are prepared to accept cash and credit/debit cards through Mastercard, Visa, Discover and American Express.  We can accept Apple (and tap) payments on some of our devices.

Cooking/serving food is hard work!  It is important to us that our staff can work at their best possible energy levels.  Also, we want to respect their time, and so we want to avoid asking them to work extra beyond their scheduled hours. 

We prepare our food “to order” which means we don’t have warming areas where we keep food ready to serve.  Many of our featured menu items such as pancakes and eggs must be made on the spot for highest quality.  On weekends especially, food orders can back up and take longer to deliver.  Be sure though that you are welcome to enjoy your beverages in the meantime.

We don’t offer delivery at the current time, and have no plans to do so in the foreseeable future.  We really appreciate the direct person-to-person contact, whether you are dining here or coming in for a carryout order. 

We are working to create a catering menu (carryout meals for 7 or more persons).  We are still learning methods for keeping our food hot and fresh and of our high quality when serving larger groups away from our site, and are working to create a menu from which you can order in these cases.  If you have any questions in the meantime, be sure to call at least 48 hours in advance.  We have a small kitchen and small staff, and planning ahead is essential.

While we do like dogs personally, as a public business we are not able to accept any animals in our restaurant or garden seating areas.  The only exception is a certified service animal, for which you must be able to present official documentation.
