Everything here is delicious- biscuits, coffee, organic local fare, however the chicken pot pie is hands down the best ever. They don't always have it on hand, if they do, don't miss out!

Watch for Russian Rive historian John Schubert who hangs out here, hooked on the home made soups! Great deli, superb staff, fun vibe, paninis, salads, wine and beer. Great spot for lunch!
