Connecting with the Garden: Isaac’s Café Specials, August 22-26

If art, music and fun are synonymous with CONNECT at Bernheim, then fresh, sustainable, and healthy are synonymous with Isaac’s Café.  The Edible Garden is providing the palate for some incredibly fresh soups, salads and sandwiches.  It should be music to your ears to hear that we grow the bulk of our ingredients just 200 steps […]

Tomatoes, At the Heart of Summer Eating: Isaac’s Café Specials, August 15-19

When I think of August, I think of tomatoes. Gardens are heavy with a tangle of fruit laden vines of possibilities. I can’t think of a more versatile summer crop.

Olympics Fever at Isaac’s Café: Specials August 8-12

I always find the summer Olympics exciting. Possibly because both of my children participated and competed in sports that are at the center of the Summer Games: swimming and gymnastics.  I have wonderful memories of cheering them both on from the sidelines with such pride.  In watching these athletes, I recognize that they all possess […]

A Forest Oasis: Isaac’s Café Specials July 11-15, 2016

I have more than once referred to Bernheim and Isaac’s Café as a forest oasis.  This past week made me realize that many of you also see it in that light: whether it’s a weary traveler needing to break up a long trip on I-65 and stumbles upon our little slice of heaven, an employee […]

Summer Magic at Isaac’s Café: Specials June 27 – July 1

Summer evenings at Bernheim are truly magical. If you have ever sat in the shade near the sunset amphitheater, watched the setting sun dance across the water, or stood under the “Let there be Light” statue overlooking the Big Prairie then you know what I’m talking about. This past Friday and Saturday at Bernheim brought […]
