As the COVID 19 situation evolves in our community, we here at Cornell Farm are evolving right along with it. Our on-site cafe has been examining various ways to continue to offer high-quality dining to our customers. With the shelter-in-place order from Oregon Governor, Kate Brown, we understand that many locals are looking for new, exciting pick-up and to-go food options in the Portland area. Our goal is to continue to provide the finest quality of fresh, local ingredients through a variety of pick-up options with our cafe.
Our Cafe is near and dear to all in our community. We transformed our Grandparent’s 1920’s farmhouse into a charming farm-to-table cafe back in 2016. We believe that fresh and local food has power and meaning. We will always serve our community amazingly fresh, flavorful options that are as good for your soul as your body.
With the restrictions enacted to protect our community from the spread of the Coronavirus, we have made some important changes to the services we are offering at our cafe. While we have closed dine-in services at our cafe until further notice, we are offering a delicious selection of take out options for coffee, pastries, brunch, and lunch items. This fantastic, fresh to-go menu is available to order online: https://cornellfarm.square.site/ or via phone: (503) 292-9895 for immediate pickup, and will continue to be offered from 8am-5pm each day.
In addition, we are very excited to announce that Chef Daniel Escalle has crafted a menu of Easy-Breezy, heat-at-home dinners now available for pick-up. Complete the meal with assorted packs of our scratch-made cookies and our wine and beer selections. In keeping with our cafe’s mission, these meals will feature the best of our farm fresh ingredients, now hot out of your oven. They will come in foil, with instructions for oven reheating, and ready to be popped into your oven or stored in your freezer for later! Customers can call (503) 292-9895 or order online: https://cornellfarm.square.site/ . Orders placed by noon will be ready for pick-up by 4pm on the same day.
Our focus has been and will continue to be on our customer’s well-being. Our cafe will continue to provide customers with exceptional food and service through both our take-out brunch and easy-breezy, dinners. In light of the current situation, we have instituted a continual sanitization regiment of high touch surfaces all around the Nursery and Cafe, expanded our staff cleanliness policy to include more frequent hand-washing and no face-touching, implemented strict social 6-foot distancing rules that are enforced by employees, and adjusted our checkout process to eliminate congestion near the registers.
Our hope is that we will be able to continue to be a staple in our community during this difficult time. We appreciate our loyal patrons, and those working hard to keep our business alive and thriving during this pandemic. We are thankful for those keeping our local economy moving by purchasing gift cards to support local Portland restaurants like ours. We will continue to offer cafe gift cards though our website: https://cornellfarms.com/collections/gift-cards
Moving forward, we encourage our supporters to keep up on our latest information through our social media, newsletter, blog, and website.
