We are in the process of shutting down our operation and closing the bookstore & bistro, after not-quite-twenty years. Time for retirement and new challenges. Please check with us as to the day’s status regarding the kitchen.

Since every lunch is made-to-order, you can have it prepared your way. Leave off the bacon, or – add more! Each menu sandwich is available as a full sandwich with chips, or as a half-sandwich with chips and a choice of soup or stew.
