about the restaurant - http://www.valleyadvocate.com/article.cfm?aid=6240
Circa Restaurant is a quaint neighborhood bistro in a quiet corner of Northampton, MA. At Circa you will find contemporary French cuisine using all the best the Pioneer Valley has to offer. We let the local farm stands and markets drive our inspiration. What's in season is what's freshest, and what's freshest is what's best.
a local joint at heart whose mission is to provide a comfortable and friendly place with a green ceiling for neighbors, kids and visitors to enjoy. The revamped café, outdoor patio and kick ass kitchen headed by chef Brigid Moore, have continued to make the place a local institution. Cushman is a great place to meet friends, have lunch meetings, work on WiFi, and save time by picking up great gift items, wine, beer or our mouth-watering rotisserie chickens. We also can provide beautiful platters for parties or other occasions.
At the Roadhouse Café only the freshest handpicked ingredients are used. And every breakfast is made from scratch only after it’s ordered. Organic fruits and vegetables are purchased from local farmers and are carefully prepared to maintain their natural vitamins and nutrition. Alternative sweeteners may be used to substitute sugar like, honey, maple syrup or molasses.
The coffee at the Roadhouse Cafe is fair trade, which ensures the best taste and is really good for the environment as well as the workers who grow it. Not to mention that it’s purchased in small amounts to ensure that it’s not sitting on a shelf for forever.
