We like to say that everything you need to live is in this shop. And we're only partly kidding. We know the names of most of the makers whose products we sell. Artisanal cheese & meats, handmade crackers, local bread, jams and spreads on the list of 100 best foods in the nation, the best pasta we've ever eaten, an olive bar, housemade pickled veggies, local wines & craft beers. We select each item like we're going to serve it to our own family. Because we do.
We're located at the Mercado San Agustin, the first stop of the Modern Streetcar, just west of downtown. The Mercado is full of life...kids, couples on dates, people with their four-legged friends, cyclists just off the Santa Cruz bike path. There is seating inside, out in the courtyard and on our front porch. It's a great place for a quick lunch or a romantic evening. And the food? Organic, artisanal ingredients make all the difference.
