To-go ordering & delivery dinner meals may be called in throughout the day up to 3:30 pm and messages are checked randomly throughout the day. Residents may also stop by the café and place orders but we do ask that orders not be placed during busy meal periods so as not to negatively affect the service of diners and cause congestion in the bar service area.  Dinner to-go orders should be picked up from 4:30-5:00 pm. If you prefer to order for the entire week, week long orders may be selected from the seasonal or weekly menu sheet handout with your name, address and contact phone number and clearly written notations on special orders. These may then be given to Linda Ann. Delivery orders of regular menu items are not available on Sunday afternoon brunch.  (i.e. burgers, salmon, appetizers and sandwiches).

Excessive large to-go and delivery order items are at the discretion of management and alternate menu items might be suggested to maintain adequate quantities for the nightly in-house meal service.
