The Herbivorous Butcher is Kosher!

January 21, 2016

They’ve been blowing up in the press and have created quite a fan-base…and now they can expand even wider with Kosher certification. Now open in their own storefront, as founder Aubry Walch says, “The world is evolving, what the world needs is less animal agriculture. The plant-based world is part of the future and we’re gonna take the word butcher with us.” Stop on over and sample some of their vegan Italian sausage, kielbasa, pepperoni, Korean ribs, porterhouse steak, deli “meats” like pastrami and bologna, and vegan cheeses including Pepper Jack, Mozzarella and cheddar. You’ll be surprised at the deliciousness and how wholesomeness.

Seven Stars Coffee House Now Closed

May 1, 2013

It certainly was great while it lasted.  Seven Stars…we will surely miss you!  From the owner:

“Dear friends and neighbors, Yesterday we closed our doors for the last time. I know I speak for everyone at our bakery when I say that we have thoroughly enjoyed our time with you over the last 3 years. This is not a sad day. We have all moved on to fulfill our next step in our lives. Whether we are going to other bakeries, culinary positions, barista jobs, nanny jobs, college, etc, we are moving on along life’s path and are excited at the opportunities. For me, I am returning to my first love. I am home with my family. Thank you all for the memories you have given all of us that will last a lifetime. May your lives be filled with the sweetness of honey and the fragrance of cinnamon. Kathy”
