To the chefs at Sage Cafe, every recipe is only as good as the ingredients put into it. With that in mind, they pick organic peppers, tomatoes, avocados, and romaine. Their coffee drinks are brewed with organic, fair-trade-certified Counter Culture coffee. They even mill their own whole-wheat flour. The menu uses simple forms to highlight rich, fresh flavors: sandwiches, quiche, and salads. Gluten-free and vegan options are also available. While enjoying lunch or a snack, diners chat with friends at petite bistro tables indoors or out, or they can take advantage of free WiFi to update their blogs with time-lapse photos of a sandwich being eaten.
