Let’s start with the rotating baked yumminess Stocks is whipping up to get your tummy growling. For sweets, order the blueberry turnover with a lavender/lemon glaze. Breakfast or lunch, check out the cranberry walnut chick’n pockets that “taste like Thanksgiving dinner” and conjure up all the deliciousness without the tired after. They’ve also got chick’n fajita pocked filled with peppers, onions, sun dried tomatoes, cheese, chick’n, and a house-made sour cream wrapped in a beautiful, flaky crust.
Items that are always on the menu include a garden veggie sandwich with cream cheese, avocado, sun dried tomatoes, cucumber, spinach and lemon pepper salt served on a toasted bagel; a big bagel burger packed with a Gardein patty, cheese, mayo, spinach and avo; and the cranberry walnut chick’n salad with house-made cranberry lemon aioli, cucumbers, toasted walnuts, ayo, cucumbers and spinach (wrap it, wheat bread or salad).
And then, there are the drinks. Order up your coffee with soy, coconut or almond milk.
