About Us

The Good Food Co. was conceived in 1997 as a Cafe, Catering Kitchen, and Gourmet Food Store. Owner Petra Graber started selling sweet and savoury baked goods at the local Farmers' Market and has incorporated local, seasonal ingredients into her menus ever since in order to prepare good-tasting, real food while supporting local producers.

Our cafe space includes an indoor seating area with small bistro tables as well as a lovely covered seasonal alley patio. We operate on a first-come, first-served counter service basis, so we DO NOT take reservations. We serve made-to-order breakfasts and lunches for eat-in or take-out Tuesday through Sunday. Please note that our kitchen closes at 2:30 pm daily.

We also sell take-home meals from our self-serve freezer full of internationally-inspired main dishes, appetizers, sauces, side dishes, soups, and baking, all made in house. Our pastry fridge showcases our from-scratch desserts, and we have an extensive menu of hot and cold beverages.

Our pantry shelves are stocked with eclectic beverage mixes, sustainably-sourced teas, coffee, local chocolate, chutneys, and mustards, and beer, wine, and liquor.
