Farmer + Baker
The gist: You would be hard-pressed to find a truer version of farm-to-table dining than Farmer x Baker, the small cafe that’s open at the waterfront at Aspinwall Riverfront Park. Owner Jennifer Urich also owns Root and Heart Farm in West Deer, and uses her plentiful, seasonal crops to create the cafe’s small, daily-changing menu.
The food: A daily menu of seasonal breakfast and lunch offerings, including crepes with local rye flour, bagel sandwiches, egg tarts, local greens salads, wood-fired pizzas, and baked goods.
The cost: Prices vary based on menu options, but typically range from $6-8 for appetizers and small bites, $12-13 for larger plates, and $16 for pizzas.
How to order: Farmer x Baker is takeout-only, open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Follow their social media for weekly menus.
