Why aren't you open more hours? Why do you sometimes run out of items?

All foods at Grandma's Kitchen are made from scratch by Mike and Casey using as many local organic ingredients as possible. If you eat a breakfast potato, for example, it was hand peeled and cooked just for you that morning! For this reason, our hours are limited and we may run out of some things. We also have two small kids and other commitments. We hope you will understand the challenges as well as the magic of a tiny, family-owned and operated, scratch made, all vegan, farm-to-table cafe and bakery!

Why do I see chicken salad on your menu if you are vegan? 

At Grandma's Kitchen, we want our menu to be approachable to everyone, whether you have been vegan for years or if this is your first time trying vegan food. We do not use altered food names as some places might choose to. We also do not put the word "vegan" in front of all non-vegan-sounding ingredients. This is our choice for our cafe since we want everything to be just like how Grandma would make it, only vegan! But rest assured, all items are vegan!

I forgot about an event that I purchased tickets to! What can I do?

We try very hard to work with all of our wonderful customers! A reminder will be sent out before any event that you have purchased tickets to. If you get that reminder and need to reschedule or cancel, please contact us and we should be able to help you out. Once we get to the day before the event, we are no longer able to offer refunds because we will be busy cooking and preparing for you. If there is availability, we may be able to switch you to a different seating at the same event. Otherwise, we can offer your meal To Go.
