The chicken, eggs, most of the produce, and some of the wines at Colab Kitchen are organic. Much of the produce is grown on their own farm where organic growing methods are practiced. Most of the remaining ingredients are from small local farms that use clean growing methods. The menu items labeled in green are grown or fermented themselves, including the sodas and kombucha. The pizza dough is house-made but is not organic. Most items are made in-house but their cheese and meats are outsourced locally and are not organic, ask for more specifics.
The menu changes often depending on the availability of ingredients and season. On a typical day, the menu offers appetizers, salads, toasted sandwiches, and pizza with a separate brunch menu serving the usual breakfast fare on the weekends. Beer, wine, and house-made beverages are served, as well as amazing signature cocktails.
What I Ordered
I sampled the house-made Ginger Fermented Soda which was tasty, along with a dish of Potato Salad. The potato salad had a smoked paprika dressing which was a refreshing flavor change. The dish itself was fresh and hearty.
The large cafe area is located past the grocery section and is equipped with many tables and a long bar in a barn-like atmosphere.
Colab Kitchen is the brainchild of the owners of Urban Farm, with an interesting setup in a sheet metal building. You’ll find a small market inside with a nice variety of desserts, produce, beverages, and other house or local made foods. Most of the food and drinks offered are of high quality and made with their own farm-grown produce or other local ingredients. The restaurant hours are limited, however, the market is open Wed-Sun 8am – 4pm.
