This café lies at a fork in the road. Four people, two retired, one looking for a career change and one looking for a lifeline, all met at the fork at the same time, and a café was born.
That was in the Fall of 2012 and on March 22, 2013, we welcomed everyone to the table of the Mustard Seed Café at the Depot. In October 0f 2015, the café became solely owned by the original chef. However, partnerships, collaborations, and general “leaning on” of others continues as the café continues to evolve. Many hands with dedicated hearts have built this place….
The concept of this small gathering place comes from the small kitchens we come from. Food was started and finished in the same room, simply and plentifully. Care was taken in preparation, because care was felt for those sharing the meal. We ate a lot and laughed a lot in those rooms, and left craving a lot more of the same. Those kitchens have become this restaurant, those tables have become the one you are sharing with us, and it is our mission to have you leave every bit as satisfied with food and memory as we did way back then.
We are glad you are here. Eat, laugh, and enjoy with us.
About the Chef:
Executive Chef/ Owner
I am your hostess, and I am your cook. I was brought into this late career change by way of a lemonade stand, my youngest sons’ lemonade stand at our local Farmer’s Market to be exact. To help their sales, I baked for them. That led to people asking me to cook for them from what they tasted on Saturday mornings, and that led to this place, and the opportunity to serve you. Who would have guessed we would meet here? Never, ever, say never…..
I watched my grandmother cook and that is how I got my start. I cooked for my own four sons who have been my best teachers about creating a meal for people, as well as my best teachers for just about everything else. I work to create a menu that is based on a simple formula; unique and delicious. I work to create an experience that is simple also; good food in a welcoming place. I hope you find both these things here.
From a purple lemonade stand manned by two little boys, to a small restaurant, to meeting you now. What a journey this has been…thank you for joining me on it.
