our story

Brassica Kitchen + Café was founded by the Whisk pop-up team, bringing creative dining to a neighborhood we love! 

By day we are a cafe, serving espresso, coffee, scratch pastries, + sandwiches.

By night, we serve a dinner menu focusing on local ingredients prepared in a French/American style. Chef’s Tastings and a la carte plates are served alongside a thoughtful cocktail, beer, and wine program.

On Sundays, we serve Brunch from 10am to 2pm.

events + catering

We host events such as $1 Oysters every Wednesday night and regular pop-up dinners from local chefs + organizations. 

We can also host events at our restaurant and cater locally! For more information, inquire below.


3% Admin Fee

Like many restaurants struggling to balance wages for Front of House (FOH) and Back of House (BOH or Kitchen) staff, Brassica has adopted a 3% Hospitality Administration Fee to supplement BOH wages and benefits.  

We thank you for the opportunity to allow us to explain our goals, transparently and honestly. We believe in taking care of and sharing in our local community — and the first stop is within our own borders.
