And the results are in…

About 3 months ago, we asked our customers and friends to cast their votes for the Best of the Best here in Colfax, and for the second year running, you’ve all showed your love for our cafe  by voting us best in Casual Dining, Catering, Ethnic Food, Lunch AND Restaurant. Best of the best 2016Well, just like the picture says!  LOL!

Our overall philosophy is it’s one thing to have a “business”, it’s another to have a cozy place to eat great food, chat and return to again and again.  We like to think we’ve created that cozy place.  We love our small community and want to give our best!  I mean, isn’t Colfax a great place to live?!

So, thank you, thank you!  We look forward to serving you in the coming year!


The Poll

Earlier this month, I had posted that we would be putting a poll out there, trying to find out what you like.  Taking into consideration which specials have been consistently popular, and expanding our breakfast menu, Mario and I came up with some ideas.  It’s just a few options, but if you have a specific item in mind, note it in the comments, and if we get enough requests or responses for it, we will definitely give it serious consideration.  There are no wrong answers and you can choose all or one, but be certain because there are no repeat votes allowed!  Thank you for your ideas, everyone!



One Step Forward, One Step Back!

The back part of our restaurant has been temporarily closed because the heater we purchased wasn’t enough for the space we have.  The door that separated the back dining area from the front was allowing drafts of cold air to blow through the rest of the building.  With a little ingenuity, we were able to correct this with a simple king-sized quilt and the difference is amazing.  We still have to access supplies from the back on occasion, but now we’re toasty warm!

We’re still working on creating a poll to find out what YOU want!  We’ll most likely get that posted early next week.

In the meantime, we’re cooking and grooving, listening to your suggestions and making it work!

A New Year

We’re at the close of 2015 and look forward to another wonderful year.

For starters, we will be open regular hours on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, and we’ll be serving a special black-eyed pea chili.  Mmmm.  What a great way to start 2016.  We’ll also be creating a monthly special that requires your help!  We’ll still working on that right now, but we’re playing with the idea of a poll, and that’s when you’ll come in.  Mario wants to hear from you to mix up the specials and possibly shake up the regular menu – it’s all good.

I leave you with a picture of some humble, delicious chicken soup.
