Because the name may imply it is heavy on vegetarian food, I can assure you it has a well-balanced menu. But, when you are in the land of fresh-from-the-garden produce, even this meat-eater had a hard time resisting the vegetable choices.
This place is quite a drive from Corvallis, but so unique, it was worth it. We visited on a warm summer day and sat in the covered veranda area out front. They have a great wood-burning pizza oven that produced some of the best looking pies I've seen this side of Naples. My husband ordered the margarita and loved its slightly charred, crisp, but airy crust and a fresh-squeezed lemonade.
I started with the soup of the day, a light and flavorful mushroom bisque served with a slice of toasted artisan bread. Earthy and delicious. But, I wanted something other than pizza from that great oven. At the top of their daily menu, they list all the in-season produce, and even though it wasn't on the menu, I asked if they could roast some of those veggies for my second course. No problem. I am so glad I asked. I was served this delightful blend of tiny whole carrots, zucchini, red peppers, marble-sized potatoes, and tomatoes in a lightly seasoned broth, drizzled with fresh pesto. So, so well prepared and tasty.
After dining, we munched on two of their giant cookies- chocolate chip and molasses while meandering through the flower garden with, among many other things, had 12 foot high sunflowers. Just a nice relaxing outing and a great place to take guests for a special experience.
