FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT ARE YOUR HOURS?
You can find them right here , friend!
WHERE CAN I FIND YOU?
Feel free to park in the parking lot next to our building.
ARE YOU HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE?
Absolutely! We have a ramp in the front and a ramp in the back to work around a small set of stairs between the market and café. Please call ahead with any questions or concerns and we will be happy to accommodate any way we can!
DO YOU SELL GIFT CARDS?
For sure! You can purchase them in person or over the phone, either digital or plastic.
DO YOU HAVE VEGETARIAN/VEGAN/GLUTEN-FREE OPTIONS?
We sure do! We have a rotating seasonal menu but we always strive to have something for everyone.
CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE MY ALLERGIES?
We will do our very best to avoid cross contamination for you, but we do have quite a small kitchen so we cannot make any guarantees especially pertaining to severe allergies. Feel free to call with any questions.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU CHANGE THE CAFE MENU?
We like to keep things interesting and tend to change an item or two or seven whenever we get fresh ingredients in. You can expect to see something new at least every month. And we always have a variety of daily specials!
CAN I BUY A BOTTLE OF WINE OR BEER FROM THE MARKET
AND DRINK IT WITH MY MEAL IN THE CAFE?
Absolutely! We just charge a small corkage fee but we wave that on Saturdays.
TALK TO ME ABOUT PIZZA...
Gladly! So here's the deal... We make pizzas the First Friday of every month. We make two different options, typically a meat and a veggie option. We post the two options on our social media pages at 1pm the Thursday before and you can start pre-ordering then. We'll take your order and payment then set up a time for you to come pick it up or dine-in. We take orders until we sell out, so the earlier you order the better!
AND HOW ABOUT THOSE WINE TAKEOVERS?
Wine Takeovers are the Third Thursday of every month. Like a tap takeover, all our wine will be from one place and we will have a representative from the company come to chat about the wines. Our chef prepares a dish to pair with each of the wines, featuring locally sourced meats and produce of course. Think of it as a more laid back, a la carte wine dinner. There are no tickets, each item can be purchased separately and in any combination you would like. Our regular menu is still available as well!
DO YOU TAKE RESERVATIONS?
Kind of, but not really. We do take reservations for parties of 6 - 10 but aren't able to accommodate anything larger at a single table. And on the First Friday of the month we do set up a dine-in time when you preorder your pizzas.
Otherwise our seating is first come, first serve.
DO YOU HAVE OUTDOOR SEATING?
Yep! Our patio out front right along the railroad tracks of historic downtown Ashland can seat about 17 people. And you're more than welcome to bring your well behaved pup along with you!
DO YOU HAVE A KIDS MENU?
Not officially. We do offer a kid's grilled cheese or a kid's basic burger, and depending on the kid you may be able to find some options they would like on our café menu, or piece some things together from our local fare selections in the market and deli case.
WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH THIS WINE CLUB I'VE BEEN HEARING ALL ABOUT?
You can find all the details right here, and if you have any other questions always feel free to ask!
DO YOU OFFER ONLINE ORDERING FOR THE CAFE?
We sure do just click right here for the deliciousness!
We don't currently offer delivery, but we'll keep you posted if we do!
DO YOU CATER?
Not necessarily. We have been known to make a cake or a big batch of something once in a blue moon for friends but it's not really our thing. If you give us a week's notice we can plan to prepare an order for up to 10 people.
CAN I RENT OUT THE PLACE?
Again, that's not really our thing. But there are a number of lovely local places that can hopefully help you out.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST FOR THE WEEKLY WINE TASTINGS?
Free! We love to educate the public on the wonderful world of wine so every Friday night from 5-7:30 in the market we have one of our local wine representatives come and give out tastings and knowledge of a handful of their favorites. There's new offerings from new representatives every week, and they bring plenty with them if you fall in love and want to take a bottle (or three) home!
HOW DO THE PAIRING DINNERS WORK?
One of our favorite things to do is host wine or beer pairing dinners that highlight the flavors of our local cuisine. It entails a 5 course meal, each course married with a different beverage to compliment each other. We try to host a wine dinner quarterly and beer dinners when possible, always on Monday nights. Tickets are priced per person and go on sale on pre-selected dates and are purchased in person, on the phone, or through our online ordering system. We announce plans for these events on our instagram and facebook so be sure to follow along so you can join us next time!
HOW ABOUT SOME MORE TAP TAKEOVERS?
We love a good tap takeover but don't do them as frequently as we used to. Any upcoming events will be announced on our social media and the bulletin board in our lobby. And if you are a brewery that wants to takeover, just give us a shout and let's work something out!
we are dedicated to providing the best to our community
and always appreciate your requests and comments.
we will get back to you during the next business hours,
and if you need to reach us any sooner just call.
