Fall Announcements!

Fall Specials, Cakes, and Delivery

Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

We have new Fall Specials! We've brought back some old faves including the very popular Jalapeño Poppers! Also returning are our Eggplant Involtini, Orange Chicken-style Stir-Fry, Chipotle Tofu Quesadillas, and the Jibarito Po’boy. And...we've created something new—Avocado Super Crunch Salad made with romaine and spinach tossed with red onions, white beans, corn, grape tomatoes, red bell peppers, and cilantro in Southwest dressing topped with lightly breaded avocado wedges, shoestring potatoes and lime wedge. An last, but certainly not least, it's time for our Pumpkin Pie Milkshake, vegan of course!

Do you want to take a whole dessert cake to go, rather than just a slice? You can now do that. We have begun offering whole cakes in the flavors that are available on our regular dessert menu at both locations, at all times, and with minimal notice. Get the menu details on our bakery and catering page.

And if you'd rather have delivery, Caviar is our new delivery partner. New Caviar users can get $5 off by using the CHIDINER code when ordering from us.

Mickey and JoAnd as always, thanks to all our fans for your continued support.
