Spring is here!
The new spring menu debuts this month and features the fresh, sweet flavors of a warming earth. Fresh local asparagus, peas, ramps, baby carrots, turnips, beets and spring onions adorn and flavor many of the new selections. It’s time to raise the patio walls, enjoy the tastes and smells of spring and come out for some terrific live music.
Open 7 Days a Week Beginning May 1
Monday – Saturday
For years, customers and downtown businesses have lamented the limited dining options open to visitors between 3:00 and 5:00 PM. With limited space and a great deal of preparation involved in switching to the dinner menu, the logistics of remaining open all afternoon present a few challenges. In order to accommodate hungry visitors during that time but still insure quality service, we have adjusted our lunch menu options. Salads and sandwiches will be available 11:00 until 2:30. From 2:30 until 5:00 we will offer pizzas and beverages on the patio and then continue with the full dinner menu at 5:00 PM.
DINING OUT FOR LIFE

SUMMER SUNDAY CONCERTS
We are pleased to announce two upcoming Sunday concerts on June 7 and July 19. The Honeycutters, an original country roots band from Asheville, North Carolina return on June 7 @ 7:00 PM with a new cd, Me Oh My. Since 2007, when the group formed, they have been playing music that is consistently as catchy as it is heartfelt. In 2011, 2012, and 2013 they were voted WNC's favorite Americana band in the Mountain Xpress reader's poll. Organically grown around the songs of lead singer Amanda Anne Platt, the band has gained an audience that has stretched far beyond their mountain home to include all corners of the United States.
On Sunday, July 19 @ 7:00 PM, we are honored to welcome back Mac Arnold and Plate Full O’ Blues. Mac Arnold’s first band included James Brown on piano. Mac moved to Chicago and Muddy Waters hired him on the spot. He toured and recorded with the Muddy Waters Band and recorded LPs with Otis Spann and John Lee Hooker. Mac moved to Los Angeles and produced Soul Train with his friend Don Cornelius. He even played bass on the Sanford & Son television show when he wasn't playing bass for Otis Redding and B.B. King. He retired from show business to be an organic farmer. Mac is back with his own band and now a third CD, building a new foundation in blues, soul and funk.
Admission for both shows is $15 per person in advance, $20 at the door and seating will be limited. The performances starts at 7 PM. The doors open at 6 PM. A limited menu of pizzas and appetizers will be available from the time the doors open until the show starts with beverages and desserts available throughout the concerts. Come by the café at 16 Main Street in Saluda or call 828-749-1179 for reservations. We accept Visa, Discover, American Express or Master Card.
