From the An family, the folks behind Crustacean, there is now Tiato Market Garden Café. It’s a wonderful little café, and a great indoor/outdoor space, says flowergirl.

Shrimp Caesar roll—think a shrimp Caesar salad in rice paper—is flavorful and light. flowergirl could eat the sausage-pesto flatbread pizza for every meal. And their antioxidant spinach salad is a treat, with blueberries, beets, craisins, chèvre, shallots, and perfect dressing. Pepper-encrusted Valdeon cheese hanger steak is cooked perfectly, flavorful and tender.

Tiato does breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday, brunch on Sundays, and a tapas dinner Tuesday through Friday, with a few substantial items on the menu, too. There’s a special focus on takeout, much needed in the area, says flowergirl.
