On 9/8/21, The Columbia City Council passed an ordinance (#2021-078) once again requiring the use of masks in all indoor settings beginning Friday September 10th. This includes retail stores and restaurants (unless you are seated.) In accordance, we will require masks for entry and at all times while in the shop. If you are not wearing a mask, our staff will politely ask you to put one on. If you do not have a mask, you may purchase one for $1.
Fall for Fall

Featured Beer Introducing the new café beer feature – It’s Fall and that means it’s time for some malty brews. This season, we will be serving the Harmonic Hefeweizen from local Myrtle Beach brewery Tidal Creek Brewhouse. Pairing beautifully with our famous chicken salad and with our new fall cheeseboard selections, this “Weissbier” has a hazy pale straw color, a lacy white head, clove spice and a trace of banana on a sweet wheat malt base. Prost!

Wine of the Week
Failla Pinot Noir Seven Springs ’19
“The 2019 Pinot Noir Seven Springs Vineyard is a real head-turner. Deep, pliant and explosive, the 2019 possesses off the charts intensity and tons of pure character. Blue/purplish berry fruit, lavender, spice, licorice and mocha infuse the 2019 with so much dimension. This is one of the most extroverted Pinots I have tasted from Ehren Jordan’s Oregon range. Wow.”
97 Pts Antonio Galloni $63.99/btl
Saturday Tastings Cancelled
With rising COVID numbers and the new City of Columbia Mask Mandate in mind, we will be suspending Saturday Wine Tastings until further notice. It was fun while it lasted! Mask up!
