Today's Specials/Veteran's Day

We will be open earlier due to the scheduled Veteran's Day Parade. Visit us between 9 a.m. -5 p.m. Along with our daily specials and normal menu, we will also have two new items on the menu just for a few days, we may decide to keep it on the menu at a future time.
Nowadays it's hard to find much without soy in it (I am intolerant to soy), so I was happy to find a rice-based yogurt. Sweet creaminess with that slight yogurt "bite", due to the live active cultures like in real yogurt (yay! good probiotics!). Ricera is wheat-free, gluten-free, soy-free and casein-free. It's made with organic brown rice. You've just got to know you're getting something good!
Or you might want to try the Onion and Dill Almond Creme Cheese slathered on a whole grain toasted bagel. Simple ingredients make up the creme cheese. Blanched almonds are blended fine and creamy with a little H2O, lemon juice, and sea salt. I add granulated onion and dried or fresh dill for flavor. The result is so much like the "real thing." But even better 'cause it's good for you.

Onion & Dill Almond Creme Cheese on Toasted Bagel $ 2.25
