Soy is absent in most of our creations​, and we offer a special selection of sugar-free and paleo delicacies.
If you happen to be gluten-free or Celiac - you have found a home here - you can eat everything on the menu, and all the specials!​

Finally - if you're a regular ol' dude with no special ingredient restrictions or preferences, then you'll find that while we seem to characterize ourselves by our sensitivity to food sensitivities, our greatest attention is on the QUALITY and TASTE of everything we put on the table. 
Either way we're convinced you will experience the difference it makes when the food you eat is made with a deliberate care and conscience for the natural qualities of the ingredients used to make it. ​
