Meet the Treehuggers

Fresh dishes from just-picked, organic ingredients

Following a “think global, act local” credo, Treehugger's Café chefs work with sustainable foods sourced mainly from local farms and vendors. Whichever eating philosophy you follow—organic, vegetarian, vegan, raw, gluten-free, oil-free, GMO-free, carnivore—there are delectable delights awaiting you.
