Our Work Of Art We use high quality, organic and local ingredients as much as possible. The milk and cream for the coffee bar and butter (the heart and soul of our pastries) come from Cloverleaf creamery in Buhl, ID.
Our coffee beans are roasted weekly by Lizzy's fresh coffee in Ketchum, ID.
We use Valrhona chocolate in all of our pastries, desserts and drinks.
Every dessert and pastry are meticulously hand crafted daily by Moshit and her team of bakers who have a great passion for quality and detail.
