Description: 40 years ago and decades before it became popular, Jesse Cool led a movement of preparing and serving only fresh, in-season, organic and local...ingredient-driven meals. The flagship of that movement, Late for the Train (1979-2004) and Flea St. Cafe. Today we know sustainability works. When Jesse set out to open her first organic restaurants, critics said it couldn't be done. Yet, along with a dedicated staff and host local farmers, vintners, fishermen and ranchers, Jesse has proven that Sustainable Cuisine is not only viable but even a preferable business model too. To this day, Flea St. Cafe continues to garner recognition and awards for environmental achievement, business sustainability, and community service. Flea St. Cafe's kitchen is led by chef Charlie Parker. With a deep respect for its own unique culinary traditions as well as those of global trends in cuisine and diversity, Flea St Cafe has aged into one of the nations truly iconic sustainable dining locations.

We had dinner here last week for our 30th anniversary, the food was outstanding and the service was excellent, perfectly timed. Portions are very generous, almost too large.

My only complaint: it was very cold inside, this did take a bit away from the night.

I Love this restaurant. The food is creative, fresh, and delicious. High points of our last visit were the vegetarian tasting and halibut. We sat outside on the patio on a perfect night. I have two very minor complaints. 1) the biscuits are so delicious that I always overindulge before our dishes arrive and 2) the peach or nectarine cobbler was overpriced for what it was (lacked any real cobbler). For the most part, the restaurant is a bit pricey but you are getting great quality.

Great food and mochas. Outdoor seating nice to relax after a workout or errand running. On the weekend head to farmer market take the train home.

A great place for a romantic dinner or a business meeting where you can hear each other. The homemade breads in the bread basket were high quality. We enjoyed the ahi tuna and the lamb chops. Both amazing. Excellent choices of wines by the glass.

I have been in this restaurant a few times over the last two years and the food, although a bit pricey, is very good. The cocktails are very nice too, the one I tried i think is called Lavander Lemno Drop and it is really nice. The last time I went in March '15 the bill was quite high, nearly 100 dollars for one person but to be honest I had two drinks, oyster as a starter and scallops (35$) as a main.

This said the food is very nice and I will definitely go back, maybe i will try to order less expensive items
