As one of FareStart’s businesses, revenue from lunch service goes back into the program, helping to fund the important services and training we offer our students. Lunch also serves as an excellent training opportunity for our students, to experience a working retail kitchen and to gain the job skills that are required for such an environment. 

Reservations are strongly suggested. Parties of eight or more are required to pay for the bill with one form of payment with an automatic 18% gratuity.

We accept Visa, MasterCard, AmEx, personal checks, cash, and FareStart Gift Cards.
