Why go? A great way to promote “edible education” and introduce your little ones to farm-to-table dining. The Café at Chez Panisse, located upstairs, opened in 1980 offering an alternative to the set menu served in the Restaurant downstairs. The Café provides a moderately priced à la carte menu for both lunch and dinner. It has an open kitchen along one side with a charcoal grill and wood burning oven. The menu is inspired by the market and changes twice a day.

What to order? The menu changes daily but is always inspired by vegetables just out of the garden, fruit right off the branch, and fish straight from the sea. The food always comes from farms, orchards, ranches, and fisheries guided by principles of sustainability.

Pipsqueak tip The space is small and you need to go up a flight of stairs to get to cafe so better to leave the bulky strollers at home. Heads up – they only have booster seats.
