When the Inn Season Café opened its doors in 1981,
we made a commitment to serve the community fresh, wholesome food. We continue to honor that commitment
by serving a vegetarian-vegan plant based diet using the best products we can procure. All of our food is prepared in-house with love and careful attention to detail.

Since opening, we have supported our local farming community through direct contact with farmers and through farmers markets. Every incoming order is inspected to ensure it conforms to our standard of quality.

Also, as part of our commitment to sustainability, we have transitioned from non-renewable carryout materials to compostable and recyclable products. All of our packaging materials—bottles, can and plastics—are recycled and most of our vegetable trimmings are composted.

We look forward to continuing our service to the community and thank our customers for their loyal support.

Please Note: All of our food is prepared without animal products except where noted. Our food is prepared to order to maintain its freshness and integrity. Please be patient. Nuts and soy products are used in many of our dishes, if you have allergies, please advise your server.

Our menu reflects the best of classic, as well as inventive world cuisine. We believe good food is intrinsically healthy and is meant to be hearty and satisfying. Though we are dedicated to serving the vegetarian and vegan community, we hope everyone will enjoy the home-cooked flavors of the Inn Season Cafe!

We at the Inn Season Cafe are dedicated to your health through our commitment to excellent vegetarian cuisine. Our inspired creations are comprised of a seasonal array of organic ingredients, grown without the use of pesticides and other chemicals which have debilitating consequences for both our farmlands and our health. Supporting local organic farming acknowledges the interconnectedness of our environmental, spiritual and physical well-being. We are delighted to nourish your body with delicious meals served in a vibrant and friendly atmosphere. We invite you to enjoy the good food that comes fresh from the farm to your table.
