Our Cosmic Commitment
FRESH LOCAL FOODS, MADE FROM SCRATCH ON SITE BY CHEF PEG BOTTO.
We are serious about your health, our community, and the well-being of our planet:
Our produce is from local farms who use sustainable farming practices. Our meat is only from local farms who treat their animals humanely and use sustainable farming practices. Our breads are from local bakeries of the highest quality. If local products are not available, such as coffee (not grown in the Continental U.S.), we support Fair Trade principles. We purchase organic products whenever possible. We keep our prices fair and reasonable, so that as many people as possible can enjoy healthful, tasty food. 10% of the cafe’s rent also goes to support Philadelphia Parks & Rec.
