Ben’s Homemade Goetta 4.95
Griddled to a crispy golden brown and made with pork and beef, steel-cut oats, butter-braised onions, and love!
Fried Green Tomatoes with Chow-chow 8.95
Sliced, coated in breadcrumbs and fried till crisp and golden brown, green tomatoes soften and sweeten with cooking and are many people’s favorite treat. The hot tomatoes are dolloped with a lively remoulade and served with homemade chow-chow, a chopped, mustardy relish full of cabbage, peppers, onions, and chopped green tomato that goes with every summer thing in the world.
We make this just a few weeks a year, when Ohio is brimming with homegrown tomatoes and peppers in all their glorious varieties. Shakshuka is an Israeli dish of poached eggs in a spicy tomato sauce, and we blanch and crush ripe tomatoes and simmer them with sweet peppers and mild chiles for a bright, fresh, only-in-the-summertime taste. Two organic eggs are nestled into the tomatoes and peppers and served with hand-cut toast spread with goat cheese and sprinkled with olive oil and za’atar, the addictive Israeli herb-sesame seed-coarse salt seasoning. This mildly spicy dish is eaten all over the world, and we’re throwing our version into the mix.
Italian Sausage Scramble 13.95
House made Italian sausage along with organic eggs creates a great brunch dish, the two being scrambled lightly together with sauteed peppers and onions, fresh spinach, sauteed zucchini and fontina cheese. Sprinkled with Parmesan and served with buttered toast and hand-grated hashbrowns.
Loose Meat Sandwich with Sunny-side Egg 12.95
Why did I suddenly get a hankering for this Midwestern classic? Maybe it’s because I just got back from Iowa, the birthplace of a loose meat sandwich called the Maid-Rite. There are even a couple of old Maid-Rite Sandwich Shops in this area, both opened in the 30s. A mixture of pork and beef is cooked up loose and crumbly, seasoned liberally with salt and pepper, browned onion and yellow mustard for that old-fashioned burger taste. Plenty of the meat is piled onto a toasted kaiser bun and crowned with a sunny-side egg. Who says the Midwest doesn’t have its own cuisine? Served with fries, hash browns or a mound of vinaigrette-dressed salad greens.
French Toast with Belletoile Cheese, Seasonal Fruit and Walnuts
Thick-sliced baguette is dipped in a creamy egg custard and browned and puffed on the griddle, topped with a shmear of Belletoile triple crème cheese, then plated and topped with fruit sauteed with walnuts and a little butter straight from the skillet.

Mushroom Migas 13.95
This is a Texas/Upstate Louisiana classic–cut-up corn tortillas and shiitake mushrooms are sauteed until softened, then scrambled with three organic eggs and shredded sharp cheddar. Garnished with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, cilantro and avocado, the tortilla melds with the egg and cheese in an indescribable way, and with all that fresh stuff piled on top it’s light and appealingly salad-ish and very savory.
Japanese Sesame Omelette with Bulldog Sauce and Fresh Vegetable Fried Rice 13.95
