opening hours and events

due to covid, indoor dining requires a negative lateral flow test from the same day.

we also do takeaway. masks are required.

see our coronavirus mitigation policies for more info.

regular opening times

sunday–wednesday
4pm–10pm

tuesday is our autism-focused day, where we play soft white noise instead of music and ask people to keep their conversations low.

wednesday which is our dog-free day (excepting service dogs). all dogs are welcome on all other days.

we will be closed from thursday november 25 – saturday december 4. we will be open during our regular hours through the remainder of december.

if a yom tov day falls on one of our opening days, we may close the café to observe. likewise we might open the café on an irregular day to celebrate certain holidays with the community. our calendar will have up-to-date information about when we’re open.

these times are subject to change: we need to see what regular hours work for us and meet the communities’ needs.
