Our Philosophy & Vendors



Our Philosophy


The Cellar Bistro came to be in August, 2007 out of a desire by Nick and Kathleen Lewis to provide people with a place to go for fresh, preservative-free foods and beverages.


Fresh, preservative-free products are important to us and we believe it’s the best way to feed your body. Our meats are antibiotic and hormone free. You will taste the difference in our pork sandwich, chicken skewers and sirloin.


We’ve chosen vendors right here in our own community or who are an integral part of their own community. And, doing business with these vendors not only provides you delicious, healthy food to eat, it also generates business for other small businesses like us. From our paper straws to bio-degradable to-go containers, we feel our restaurant has a positive impact on the environment.


Without a deep fryer or microwave, our chefs are able to prepare fresh, healthy food that will leave you feeling satisfied and not gorged. We are confident that once you try The Cellar Bistro, it will become your favorite lunch and dinner spot.
