Warmest greetings, Friends!

The new year has been frigid and inhospitable thus far — lucky for you, our bistro-boutique hybrid is the perfect cozy spot for breakfast on your day off, an out-of office lunch, or a mid-afternoon pick-me up! Come in and defrost with a creamy maple sage latte and browse through the boutique for a much needed break from the arctic draft.




Huge east-facing windows that overlook Main Street provide views of serene sunrises and fill the dining space and lounge with light.

The effect is energizing - our staff can testify to feeling rosy and buoyant, eager to encounter the day’s potential. Who wouldn’t want to start their day with a burst of natural energy, accompanied of course by that extra shot of espresso?!


Salt and Light and This Beautiful Dust opened a little over two years ago, a labor of love that has become a unique coupling of modern-eclectic food and small-batch ethical fashion.




The boutique, literally “shop” in French, is stocked with handmade pieces of clothing, jewelry and other accessories. Curated with a discerning eye, This Beautiful Dust is located on the lounge side of S+L and includes designers from all across the United States as well as Europe. Treat yourself or find a thoughtful gift for someone special, all while supporting a growing industry that is both humane and environmentally conscious.

Staffed by S+L’s front of house crew, there is always someone available to answer questions, point out changing areas and wrap up sales.

Merriam-Webster defines bistro as: “a small or unpretentious restaurant.” A term of French origin, it has referred to a restaurant that serves french homestyle cooking or other “slow-cuisine”.  Our meaning has evolved to pair a scratch kitchen that serves up artfully prepared dishes and Fair Trade organic handcrafted beverages, with an inviting, neighborhood space.


There are diverse dining options for both breakfast and lunch that will satisfy omnivores and vegans alike. If you’re an on the go teacher or businesswoman and need a quick snack, we’ve got you covered with an array of muffins, scones and other pastries always made by our in-house baking staff. Our burritos wrap up nicely for a long commute.




Time to spare between meetings or errands? Sit down for a delectable plate of vegetable hash or an ALT - Avocado, Lettuce and Tomato.  


Both can be made to order for vegan diners.





A constantly evolving menu spotlights our executive chef’s creativity - some items like the Kimchi Reuben and the Avocado Toast have won the hearts and bellies of the masses and will stick around. Others come and go as produce and meats are seasonably available. No chance of running into a proverbial “what to eat” rut!




We are on a journey as a small business, and  since the day we started, have been dedicated to making each encounter meaningful. You’re not just potential diners or buyers when you walk through our door, but potential friends.  


Come with us as we keep growing, and see what this new year has in store!
