Nature’s Example: Isaac’s Café Specials, May 16-20

Nature sets a great example. This morning I watched a mother robin teaching a fledgling how to feed himself.  She had a fat, juicy worm in her beak and would dangle it just out of reach, then drop it onto the ground just a short distance away and repeat this action over and over until […]

Say hello to freshness at Isaac’s Café: Café Specials May 9-13, 2016

There are few things more rewarding than planting, harvesting, and then eating fresh vegetables that you grew yourself.  Unfortunately, many people don’t have the time, the space, or the know-how to do that.  The Edible Garden at Bernheim, just 200 steps away from Isaac’s Café, is already producing an abundant harvest.  Our garden steward, Cole […]

It’s Derby Week! Isaac’s Café Specials: May 2-6, 2016

Hold on to your hats, it’s Derby week! Ever wonder how wearing an outrageous hat became a thing at the Derby? As it turns out, it all started when horse racing wanted to give the track a much needed  face-lift, so to speak.  The track was typically a place where “proper” women would not be […]

This week marks a very special milestone for the environmental movement.  April 22 is, as many of you know, Earth Day.  Senator Gaylord Nelson, the founder of Earth Day, knew the importance of protecting and preserving our environment for future generations.  The grassroots movement that he began as a teach-in, became a groundswell of activism […]

Winds of Change: Isaac’s Café Specials, April 11-15, 2016

As I was listening to the wind howl outside my window last night, it made me think about the phrase, “Winds of Change”. Change can sometimes be scary. The fear of the unknown, the uncertainty of what might be blowing our way can often have us hiding from the very thing that will take us […]

The Thinking Tree: Isaac’s Café Specials April 4 – April 8, 2016

I hope everyone is ready for a Tree-rific spring break!   This is the perfect time to fall in love with trees.  The red buds are in full color, the dogwoods are just about to pop, and the colorful fabric of the landscape is changing every day. As a parent, there is no better time to […]

Spring Cleaning: Isaac’s Café Specials March 28 – April 1, 2016

It’s spring cleaning time at Isaac’s Café and time to make room in our freezer.  We are using the bounty of our well stocked garden freezer to create mouthwatering soups and specials.  It won’t be long before the Edible Garden is in full swing and our dedicated volunteers  will be filling up the freezer once […]

It’s Spring Harvest Time: Isaac’s Café Specials March 21-25, 2016

Many celebrations of modern times are built on the foundation of ancient rituals, followed religiously by some cultures and given a modern flair.   At Isaac’s Café, we are celebrating the Edible Garden’s First Harvest!   Cole Alexander and I have just harvested tender Asian greens that will be the foundation for this week’s special. The perfect […]
