Catty Day: Thursdays, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Whether you’re feeling catty or know someone who is the cat’s meow and want to tell them so, a special catty cake is the answer. Adorned with decorative mini-felines that are adorable, sassy and occasionally naughty, these sharing cakes ($8) come in a variety of flavor combos that will make recipients purr. These are always in demand so head on down early to grab yours or call ahead to reserve one. Just ask and we’ll recommend a bottle of bubbly to pair with it.

Vinca Minor 2016 Carignan
Red fruit meets earthiness and spice in this Mendocino County-grown varietal with Spanish roots. Aged in neutral French oak, this wine yields the best of its Old Vine pedigree and dry farm upbringing while proudly displaying winemaker Jason Edward Charles’ organic production methods. This small production winery boasts a large pairing portfolio tailor-made for summer meals. Have a bottle or two with anything off the grill from marinated skirt steak and barbecue pork tenderloin to heartily-seasoned Portobello mushroom caps and delicately-seasoned lamb chops kissed with a hint of rosemary-infused olive oil. It also enjoys the company of a cheese and charcuterie plate or even a savory blue cheese cheesecake. Buy a bottle, tell us you read about it here and get a free cookie of your choice as our way of saying “Merci!” for giving it a whirl… or swirl.
THE MORE, THE MERRIER
Buy six bottles of wine and you choose a dessert to take home. Buy 12, we’ll pay the tax and you’ll choose a dessert to take home. Just something to keep in mind for your summer party needs.
Stay tuned. Watch for updates about the following...
JUNE 2019 NEWS
June Swoon. Baseball fans know this refers to a team’s slump that comes just after the novelty of the new season has worn off, scouting reports on opposing teams are starting to have an impact on the field and minor injuries are starting to take a toll.
But in our world, June means that school’s out, the usual office grind slows down a tad and everyone takes more time to be in vacation mode – even if it’s for a few meditation minutes at their desks or on the lounger by their at-home pool. And this more relaxed vibe naturally leaves more time to swoon over everything soothingly sweet and delightfully decadent.
Fortunately, we have all of the above and then some. Sure, we’ve got your dessert needs covered. But come by for less sweet goodies like Noble Bread loaves and huge pretzels, beet chips, mint pistachio pesto, from-scratch English muffins, Arizona graham crackers and Lefese chips by our own chef Brad Ottesen. And of course we’re eager to assist you with selecting a wine, vermouth or cider that will have you swooning in the best way even more.
ALL ABOUT DAD
If he’s got a sweet tooth, we’re happy to indulge it. Tell us his favorite flavors and treats of choice and we’ll customize a cake to feed one or 100, procure a gift box of handmade cookies or craft a selection of vegan or gluten-free morsels. Give us some notice and we’ll put together a basket packed with his favorite sugary bites and a bottle of wine.
