This locally owned vegetarian restaurant is a true gem. The menu has a variety of delicious options and the owners use locally grown products. We would recomment the Four Bean chili, Yinzer Salad and BBQ Lunaburger.

This is a vegetarian restaurant, but I'm not a vegetarian (my wife is). I don't remember the names of the meals we ordered yesterday, and the menu is now different. This is because the chef apparently bases the menu on the freshest food she can...More

I have seen this place before but wasn't really sure if it was something I wanted to try. Homestead has a lot of run down/vacant buildings and I never got the feeling that this was a place I wanted to be. Curiosity got the best...More

After the launch for my book about the Homestead Strike of 1892, family and friends came to the cafe for a celebratory dinner. Even though more people came than I had made reservations for, the staff was unflappable as they set up seating on the...More
