Food, both lunch and desert

“…an eclectic mix of contemporary American fare with a gourmet twist…healthy, all natural soups, salads and sandwiches are hearty and filling… bread, meat, cheese and produce from local suppliers and all of our spreads, condiments and dressings are carefully made by hand with no additives or preservatives. Our truck is a rolling piece of art created by “post visionary” artist, Gabe Felice…”
