Sweet Water Music Hall
19 Corte Madera Avenue
Mill Valley, CA
(415) 388-1700 (cafe)
The Café at Sweetwater is a small space with a big job: it is the entrance to the Sweetwater Music Hall, the first introduction, as well as an oasis of calm (relatively speaking), offering a break from the excitement of the energy therein. Charmingly rustic, yet beautifully finished, it hints nicely at what is to come in the Hall itself. The mission of the Café is to serve beautifully made food and drink in a relaxed and convivial environment, with professionalism, warmth and cheer.
It is a walk-up window; sort of like a food truck without the wheels. You order and pay at the window, we bring the food to wherever you are sitting. Unless you hide the number you are given. The food at the Café is driven by the farmer’s market, with emphasis on all aspects of the F.L.O.S.S. philosophy: Fresh, Local, Organic, Seasonal and Sustainable. Sounds trite, but most certainly is not.
Our food is a variation on the theme of California cooking, with bright flavors drawn from many different ethnicities: delicious and varied, but never fusion-y. And pretty darned affordable, considering the quality. Beverages cover all the bases, with familiar names as well as some unexpected gems (many from Marin, including our own house-made kombucha, courtesy of Kombucha Mike)
