Here at Emma's, we strive to serve only the freshest food made from local ingredients. We take pride in the quality of the food we serve to you. Our beef products come from grass-fed cattle, our pork products are from pasture-raised pigs and nitrate-free, and our poultry and eggs are free-range whenever possible. We buy organic ingredients whenever they are available to us, and many of our local providers are committed to natural, sustainable practices even if they cannot afford the certified organic stamp. We support local ingredients because we hope to serve our community in a sustainable manner. Eating local food also connects us to our community and helps us eat seasonally, the way nature intended. As time passes, we will not only buy locally, we will also obtain more and more of our products from Sunnyside Farm, the farm run by Emma's. This farm, which provides our restaurant with beef, pork, chicken, eggs, produce, and more, is run in a seasonable, sustainable, humane manner. This direct farm-to-restaurant connection provides you with food fresher and more delicious than you can find anywhere else.

My husband , daughter and I just had a delicious meal at Emma's Food For Life. My 15 yr old daughter is vegetarian and was pleased with the variety of selections on menu. Would definitely come back.

We are staying at the Hampton Inn and Emma's was nearby. The menu choices offered fresh produce and organic meats cooked into delicious meals. We tried both of the special soups, a falafel wrap, and a chicken taco salad. Their homemade bread was wonderful and their homemade dressings are very tasty. Highly recommend it, especially for vegetarians or vegans.

Stopped in with my wife for a quick bite. Was expecting a different vibe. Not sure what, but the name Emma's Food For Life seem to inspire a more laid back feel. Emma's was more like a basic diner with a few nick-nacks. The menu had a wide variety and we had the falafel and santa fe chicken salad. My... More

We have been going to Emma's since she opened and have NEVER been disappointed. Excellent choices, local foods, creative preparation and great staff (we mean you Alison). Deserts are a must and the bread great.

My sister and I went there, based on the recommendation of a family member and we were not disappointed. The menu was excellent and well thought out. Service was superb. Food is well-prepared, from scratch. Everything is organic, and is highly recommended for those who eat vegetarian , vegan, or who are on a gluten free or lactose intolerant diet.... More

What a terrific find! We were camping in the area and decided to randomly check out local restaurants in the area after a week of same ol' Perkins/Denny's/BBQ places. I have to admit, I was suspicious, being from NJ, that an organic restaurant would have tiny portions and strange flavors that my kids would not like (majorly fussy eaters in... More

My family ate at Emma's this past week and if I lived closer this would be a place I would go to regularly. If your travel range includes 30 minute radius, make the trip if you are into farm to table experiences. Our meal started with terrific hot homemade wheat bread with house made jelly from Emma's garden. My daughter... More
