of hot fresh art, amazing live music, comedy, handcrafted jewelry and 
pottery, storytelling, author nights and more. 

Some of our creative comfort food is vegan, organic, dairy- 
and gluten-free, and some of it is just plain naughty delicious, like jalepeño 
bacon, Godiva Chocolate cheesecake~ or the Funk-O-Potamus.

We offer craft beer & fine wine,  excellent fair trade organic coffee, 
teas galore, 100% fruit smoothies, baked goods and some wicked desserts.
Enjoy some of Connecticut's finest artists as you listen to award-winning CT,
regional and national touring musicians~ inside when it's cold out, outside
as often as we can on our gorgeous, secluded red-brick courtyard.
