MARCH 2016 | DINING
Farley’s East serves the best quality coffee and tea because it’s the only way to treat our neighbors! Our baristas take great pride in welcoming you with a cup of that special something you crave – we want you to feel like you belong here. We proudly serve De La Paz Coffee, who roast exclusive, seasonal house coffee and espresso blends for us. Based in San Francisco, De La Paz puts an emphasis on transparent sourcing methods and paying honest prices for the best coffee beans, which they hand-roast in small batches. Our tea is provided by another San Francisco company, Five Mountains Tea. Specializing in heirloom organic cultivars, their tea is sustainably harvested from gardens of their native origin. The people that live and work in our community are and always will be our priority – and giving you the best coffee and tea is the only way to treat you right. So come on in and get yourself a little community in a cup!
While Farley’s East’s roots are in coffee, our food can stand alone and is what makes the Farley’s experience just that much more special. All of our food is made from scratch or sourced from local purveyors who share the same food values as we do: simple, sustainable, inspired and never pretentious.
