COVID-19 statement

Hi everyone! We'd like to ask a favor.

We realize stress levels are high but we'd like to ask that we all please make an effort to be kind. Our staff and drivers are leaving the safety of their homes daily to provide a service. And customers are leaving the safety of their homes to pick up orders and run errands. Please be aware of social distancing when encountering other people. Everyone is just trying to get what they need and get home.

We love our staff and customers and want everyone to be as safe as possible. It's an imperfect and completely abnormal time right now. As a small, locally owned business, we're doing our very best to continue providing the comforting foods you love while abiding by the safety orders coming from our local government.

Please be aware of local safety orders.

no mask, no service graphicWe support our local government orders including requiring masks for anyone picking up orders at either of our locations.

Please also abide by the pick up time for your order so we may ensure customers are spaced apart safely. If you arrive early, please wait outside until your pickup time and please be aware of the distance guidelines when entering.

Our staff will not be exiting our restaurant to hand off orders outside. They will not be interacting with individuals outside our restaurants. They are safely located on the kitchen-side of the interior tables set up for handing off orders.

Contact-free Pickup and Delivery 12pm to 8pm.

We are open for pickup and delivery orders 12PM to 8PM daily, brunch until 3pm. Orders may be placed up to 30 minutes prior to closing times.

Please read our safety FAQs so that we may all be as safe as possible under the circumstances.

Starting April 13, we re-opened our Lakeview location for limited dine-in reservations. As you probably know, restaurants are still facing capacity restrictions so we’re using Resy to manage our open seats and keep everyone socially distanced. Please read the safety guidelines on our booking page before making your reservation. It’s been over a year since we’ve had dine-in service so we’re taking things slowly by only opening Lakeview at this time. We’re very excited to see you guys again! Virtual hugs!

Thank you so much for your support,
Mickey, Jo, Michael, and the crew.
