Can't believe I was lucky enough to spy this place while I was running errands Sat. They've only been open a short time and I hope they will be in business for a long time. 

It's great to find a restaurant, especially in my area, that serves local, organic food. 



I ordered the cheese pizza, made with their homemade mozzarella cheese. 

Come check the place out. 



It's not very often I get pizza, much less one of my favorites, just plain ol' cheese. 



Look at that thin crust, just how I like it.

The cheese was outstanding, homemade really makes all the difference. 

Notice the lack of grease on the pizza pan, wonderful. 



mmm, a nice cold beer.

They are very proud of their sources, they are mentioned on the board and menu. 




In a display case was something that looked like a dessert and stuffed squash blossoms. 

The interior is very stark, nice, but stark. 

The place is clean, clean, clean. Probably the cleanest restaurant I've been in, in a while. 


I can't wait to go back and check out some of the other great items on the menu. If you find yourself out in the East County, be sure and give them a try, deeelicious food.
