What's in your picnic basket?

Maybe it's the summer breeze
Maybe it's my love of food on the go
Maybe it's all the train people coming through needing something quick and fantastic.
My Question for you is....

What's in your ideal picnic basket?

On the day that Brandon proposed he made a picnic for us of mangos, hummus, akmak crackers, baby bell cheese, an avocado, and a coconut.

That combo is always dear to me both because I'm obsessed with food and memories (especially the mushy ones).

So, what would you like to eat?

happy summer

Here we are, just past summer solstice, the days are long and warm and kind.

We took one of our normally productive Mondays back in May and had a bbq in the backyard with friends and family.

It truly is beautiful to see employees loving each other outside of the cafe.


and like all the Sally Loo's potlucks, the food was to die for

apricot honey tart

toasty kale chips with pine nuts
and plenty of bbq madness a la brandonio

and his magic hat ;)

a cute commercial

So we had the honor of being part of something quite amazing.
A talented group of Cal Poly students decided to use us for their senior project. They made a commercial about us!
It turned out so great. I've watched it more than a couple times in a row. They captured what we want Sally Loo's to feel like to a tee!
Great job Becky, Gordon and crew!!
We love it!
