“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

We stopped on our way out of town and I wish we would have stopped on our first day. My husband had the salmon fish and chips and I had the chicken gyro - both excellent choices! We will definiately stop and eat again at Farrago's;)

“Good food in a casual atmosphere.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

We dined here in the outdoor area right at sunset. Very pleasant atmosphere outside and superb paninis on the menu. Owned by the same family that operates the excellent Alley Grille across the street, this cafe has equally good food at family dining prices.

“Comfy casual evening outside”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012 via mobile

It is so different at night. The lights made it fun and the pizza was thick and yummy. Spray yourself with Off before you go..the mosquitoes are as big as the pizza. They did try to keep them away with candle fans. We didn't care..the service was great and the wine and beer choices good.

“Quick work saves the day!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

We had emailed Farrago requesting a table for 10 adults and 6 kids -- they replied back that they'd be happy to seat us. But when we arrived, they had NO reservations for us. The staff quickly put together enough tables to seat us all, but the service was a little slow due to our large number(the only drawback). Then it started to rain! Again, the staff hurriedly got together enough tables inside to seat us all. The food was excellent, and the staff were excellent as well. When I got home, I had an email from Farrago's sister restaurant (Alley House Grill) that they saved our table for an hour. Apparently, their email goes to the same place, so if you need special accomodations like we did, make sure they know which restaurant you're requesting!!

sweetchef59, Owner at Farrago Market Cafe, responded to this review, July 31, 2012
Thank you very much for the Kind words in your review of Farrago market Cafe'.
We must say in 71/2 years of business this is a first for us and please except our apologies for the mis-understanding.
We do not take reservations at Farrago, but sometimes we will set up space for large parties like yours with a request ahead of time through a phone call to the restaurant directly. Inturn Alley House does take them and we almost stictly work off of mostly reservations.So you can see our mistake not knowing that you meant Farrago. Again we appricaite your good review of us, and we have made changes to fix this situation so that it never happens again.
Sincerely,
Kellie Stevens
Owner

“Food was OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

Service was confusing. You order at the bar but the menu is not clear. I had a salad plate but it was too much of the same thing.. no green salads except for predone.
