Found this hidden gem while art shopping in the front part of the building. I believe this may be the only organic restaurant in Fallbrook. I had a organic wild salmon sandwich with lemonade. Even the lemonade was fresh squeezed without a ton of sugar. My wife had the tomato and red bell pepper soup. Smallish portions but reasonably priced... More

Good and healthy food with a congenial host/owner and interesting clientele, including a particularly intelligent former professor who seems to hang out there a lot. Go there frequently.

Cute restaurant and art gallery. Organic foods, local suppliers, a gem of a find. Can't wait to return!

What a relaxed and fun place to go have lunch or dinner ... or sit and enjoy a glass of wine. Wonderful fresh homemade selection of deserts, enjoy the fresh soups and salads, sandwiches are delicious! Nice selection of wine. All located in the Fallbrook Art Gallery ... love the place! Not too expensive either!

My husband and I enjoy stopping in for house made soups and sandwiches at lunch time. We've attended a couple of theme dinners with wine tastings and free range meats (wild boar, elk, wild caught salmon, etc). Michael is a terrific host who makes a mean espresso. Fresh, whole foods ingredients...nothing processed.

I had lunch here with a girlfriend last Thursday. Michael is only open for lunch and then for drinks from 3-4 but be sure to stop by when you're in Fallbrook. The restaurant is tucked in behind the Fallbrook Art Center (in the same building) and shares a parking lot with the Fallbrook Public Library, so it is conveniently located... More

Riding on a name's coat tails doesn't quite do it ... this is a nice sandwich and soup shop, grafted onto the back of a local ... very local ...

This place is cute, has salads, desserts and sandwiches. Sort of a deli that is a part of a gallery. I regret not checking out the art, but there's always next time. Great iced tea, salad was good, nothing spectacular, but the person I went with insisted I give a great review because of their "amazing" salmon sandwich and desserts.... More

Our lunch was so good we had to find room for a cake. We had sandwiches with soups - both excellent. The tuna melt had walnuts in which was a nice twist. We shared a scone - delightfully cinnamon free. The owner, Michael, was really friendly and helped us out with great directions. Adjoining the café is a small art... More
