Description

The hyperseasonal menu at Mindy Segal’s inviting storefront refuses to take a back seat to the James Beard award winner’s illustrious desserts. Begin with the exceptionally fresh soup and follow it up with a salad, chock-full of Werp Farms field greens, and the well-seasoned crab cake sandwich. Some dishes fall flat (we had an overcooked burger and greasy pasta), but who are you trying to kid? You’re there for the sweet stuff. On that front, housemade ice creams and flavored hot chocolates are the ticket. An impressive craft beer list is an unexpected bonus.
