If you’ve walked into one of our markets, chances are you’ve passed by the Cafe. Behind the glass, you can find some of the healthiest and most delicious dishes in Los Angeles. Everything that you see is cooked fresh by our amazing culinary team.

But our Cafe dishes are more than mouth-watering. From our proteins & produce to our sauces and seasonings, almost everything in our kitchen is organic. Our Cafes are meant to show our customers what food can be when you prioritize nutrition, freshness, and organics. All it takes is the right ingredients!

The Organic Difference

The term ‘organic’ gets thrown around quite a bit, but what does it really mean?

At its core, organic products promote a natural approach to food. Whether it’s a synthetic growth hormone or an artificial nutrient, any human-made substance is not permitted in the organic process. Organics also prohibit GMOs altered to be larger, faster-growing, and less quick to spoil. As for weed and pest control, organic products steer clear of pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, or any other “cides” whatsoever. For fertilizers, organic farmers rely on composted manure whereas many conventional growers use processed sewage to feed their crops!

An organic lifestyle has proven health benefits that allow us to feel how they should. It’s even been linked to measurable boosts in mental and physical health. Beyond our bodies, going organic has a critical impact on the environment. Organic farming reduces pollution, conserves water, and boosts soil health. When it comes to agriculture, it even guards against the spread of bacterial infections. As stewards of the environment, we believe in supporting organic growers and food providers who never compromise on quality.

The next time you find yourself browsing our menu, remember that your taste buds aren’t the only part of you that benefits from our organic Cafes.

A Revolving Door of Freshness

When you look at all of the benefits, going organic seems like the obvious choice. But in practice, it can be quite challenging to find products that meet these standards. That’s because organic foods are more expensive to cultivate and cannot be treated with chemicals that extend shelf life. Our Cafes are well-equipped to handle these challenges. We believe in following nature’s lead and serving dishes with only one thing in mind: What’s fresh, available and in season?


We’re engaged in a never-ending process of receiving fresh ingredients and experimenting with new dishes. Our organic identity means that our menu changes based on what’s in season. Since all of our ingredients are focused on freshness and locality, we’re constantly working with exciting ingredients that can expand the palate and support a healthy lifestyle.

So if you find your eye stopping on a new menu item like the

Nourishing Our Community

We believe that everyone should have access to healthy, organic food. That’s why we’ve partnered with the Midnight Mission, a nonprofit that offers shelter, recovery, and life development services to Los Angeles’ homeless population. Once our markets close for the day, we transport the leftover food from our Cafes to the Midnight Mission’s headquarters in Downtown Los Angeles.

So, if you miss the chance to pick up a serving of our delicious organic food, rest assured that it will be enjoyed by someone in need.
