on the days when i am too lazy to pack a lunch, i wander two doors down and indulge in a delicious lunch from pikanik. joanna, the owner, is always happy to see me and katrina, (whom i call the face of the operation) knows that i swear by their trader joe's earl grey. james, the amaaazing chef, is always there with a funny quip and an astonishing, bubbly personality for a chef, (anyone whose worked in a restaurant will know what i'm talking about) which can only be accounted for as a result of this most joyous and fun work place!
if you have not yet tried pikanik, it is time! their dinner rolls are so fluffy-soft, you can't even tell there's not a lick of gluten in 'em! and if you are ever so fortunate as to visit on a day when they offer their mac and cheese (features change daily) then you are in for a wild time. soups, sandwiches, muffins, cookies, loafs of bread and school lunches are a few of the other goodies they offer. i will leave you with a mouth watering picture of the aforementioned mac'n'cheese
chicken, pesto, green onions, and
tomatos on gluten-free flat bread
with spinach/raspberry balsamic
