Very Sad News
We are heartbroken to share that Susan passed away after a sudden illness on June 22nd, 2015,. A private celebration of her life was held out of state by her immediate family.
We know that many people cared about Susan and that she will be deeply missed. We appreciate that her loss will be widely felt, but ask that we be allowed to grieve as privately as possible. We ask for your understanding at this time, knowing that our request will be difficult for many. Thank you so much for your good wishes, your prayers, and your friendship. Your affection for Susan is truly appreciated and we are honored to be surrounded by such loyal friends.
We have established a memorial website, and kindly ask that you leave your condolences, memories, and stories there, rather than approach the family at the restaurant, or on Facebook.
A little about what you can expect if you're visiting to us for the first time:
Fresh food, made to order, with as much personal service as we can muster on any particular day. We’re not fine dining. But we are really good dining. And we have to hope that most of the people who find us for the first time will be looking for just that. And be happy they found us.
We've recently had a huge, bright, public light trained on our little, family business. And while it’s exciting and we’re confident that we will navigate the attention with as much grace as possible, we've been thinking a bit about the other side of the coin. Hmmmm. Not every person who walks in the door is going to fall in love. (Ooooo, yeah, well, we knew that, I guess). We’re going to get some bad reviews, most likely, not just lukewarm. (Who said that? What’s his damage?) Some people will judge us by standards that don’t really apply to a 14 table ice cream parlor / luncheonette / confectionery. (It was too noisy? Really?) And, some people just won’t like us. (Per Mrs. Seinfeld: Who doesn’t like you?! Don’t even think it!?!) So our challenge is not to take it all too personally. It’s not show-friends, right?, it's show-business. While most of this will be wonderful and fun, (for all of us, we hope), we imagine there will be some stumbles. Regardless, as usual, we promise to do our best and we truly hope you like what we have to offer.
In any case, please feel free to speak with Bryan or Susan while you're at the store, give us a call at
