Farm Station Café is the retail face of the well know local caterer À la Carte. Owner Karen Baker set out to enlarge her catering operations with a new kitchen at the old Vint Hill Army base, she wisely included a Café. Chef Matt Mize has created an excellent menu which their web page describes as “80% of our ingredients are local, pasture-raised, organic, free of GMOs, antibiotics, hormones, pesticides and chemicals. We’ve designed our menu to satisfy our broad base of customers to include vegetarians, vegans, gluten free and paleo options.”
Most of the meals are created in a smaller Café kitchen in front of the catering kitchen to to keep everyone out of each others way.
A wide variety of beverages are sold in bottles and cans along with self serve coffee and tea.
On my last visit I tried the awesome Phili Cheese Steak with house-made potato chips. It’s as good as any cheese steak sandwich you can get outside of Philadelphia.
I’m a sucker for cloth napkins. Somehow it makes the sandwich taste better.
They have a nice selection of desserts from which to choose. This is the best lunch spot I have found in the area since AKT Nourish closed their doors last year. They are open 7 days a week with brunch only on Sunday. The noise level is minimal and there is plenty of outdoor seating when the weather is nice.
