The Little Kitchen that Could: Isaac’s Café Specials, July 25-29

Isaac’s Café has been referred to as the “Little Kitchen that could,” and I have to agree.   Every day, the staff of Isaac’s takes our little corner of the Visitor Center and transforms it into a symphony of taste and tempting smells.  When Isaac Bernheim envisioned a place for people to connect with nature, I […]

New Summer Menu at Isaac’s Café

It’s time for our summer menu at Isaac’s Café, and it has a brand new kids menu that is sure to please the most selective of young tastes.  The Bee’s Knees is a peanut butter and banana sandwich with a drizzle of Bernheim honey – it will knock  your socks off.  The ECO cheesy quesadilla and […]

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 […]

Following Your Nose: Isaac’s Café Specials, June 20-24

I love it when I hear someone who just stepped into the Visitor Center exclaim, “Wow, something smells amazing!” Usually this occurs in the hours just before Isaac’s Café opens at 11 a.m. while we are turning the day’s harvest into that day’s lunch, but often it lingers throughout the day. Any time onions, mushrooms, […]

Isaac’s Café Brings New Opportunities to Expand Your Taste Buds: Specials June 13-17

Yesterday, I went to support my son at Tough Mudder KY (a grueling, 12.5 mile obstacle course held at the Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, KY). This is not a race or a competition, but a challenge. If you throw in temperatures over 90, high humidity and add lots of Kentucky hills, it becomes insanity, but thousands […]

Making History at Isaac’s Café: Specials June 6-9.

If you were here for the Big Tree Hug Challenge on Saturday, you helped us make history (the unoffical number is 1,416, pending Guinness verification). Thank you! In our own small way, we became part of something bigger than ourselves. The world will know that something special happened at Bernheim on Saturday, June 4th, 2016 […]

Isaac’s Café, home of the Big Hug! Specials May 31 – June 3

In honor of our Big Tree Hug Challenge, the special at Isaac’s café this week will be what we are calling, the BIG HUG! It is a forest of fresh greens from our Edible Garden, piled high with our homemade chicken salad all rolled together with other fresh veggies and given a big hug in […]
