Irving Farm coffee and Harney & Sons tea help to round out our offerings. We pride ourselves on keeping the fun in our food.


Although the doors opened in February 2016, the seeds were planted long before. Food has always been an integral part of the Palmer family. The eldest of four, Joan (aka Momma Palmer) took over the family cooking and baking responsibilities at an early age. Her pineapple upside down cake was killer! It was inevitable that her love for food made its way down to the next generation. However, it took a departure from a career in advertising and a 2 year stint at the CIA before Kia (the daughter) officially entered into the food world. Fast forward a few years and a couple of great kitchens later (Eleven Madison Park, Ninety Acres, Splashlight Studios), and it was time to venture out and create something personal and special. After one amazing sweet talk, Kia convinced Joan to come out of retirement and join her as a business partner. This Mother - Daughter duo had one goal….to open a space that created moments of joy through food. It is their hope that you find a little piece of happiness when you visit.
