We need your support!

Like all of our partners in the food and beverage industry we have been greatly effected by our current “new normal.”  We want you to know that we are taking every precaution to keep our staff and our customers safe during this unprecedented time. We continue to follow the events closely and will modify as needed.  For now, we are open from 7-1pm, Monday-Sunday, serving our damn good coffee, pastries, and nibbles all “to-go.” 

If you can’t make it in, we totally understand, and hope that you will continue to support us by purchasing gift cards for your favorite people who might need a little pick-me-up and a smile!

We thank our amazing community of customers, vendors, and staff….we appreciate you and are here for you!

First Avenue Foods; The Savory Biscuit

The savory biscuit we make for 1st Ave customers comes right from my  kitchen.  This delicious and satisfying cheesy biscuit checks off all the boxes as the perfect snack with my coffee or wine or salad. Just ask my friends who Iโ€™ve abused with every rendition when invited to dinner – mushroom/onion, broccoli/swiss cheese, gruyere/green onion, pancetta/belicino….


Organic foods have always been a priority without any food group restrictions.  I ate everything except for liver – awful, gross stuff (use to stash in my pockets and shoes when served at our family dinners). Though as Iโ€™m writing this Iโ€™m scratching my head wondering why I didn’t remove grains from my diet years earlier.  


Diabetes and arthritis runs in my family.  Yet it was breast cancer that made me sit back and take a serious look at the foods I was eating and how they supported my immune system or fed the cancer.  Treatment for cancer is horrific. So I wanted to do whatever I could to beat the crap out of it and for me that meant, in part, removing high glycemic index foods and drink.  So goodbye wheat, corn, rice and a slew of my favorite foods.  
Having grown up in an immigrant Italian family, where every meal was an important social occasion and celebration, I was desperate to create those experiences sans grain.  Itโ€™s been 5 years.  I continually experiment with new ideas, new ingredients to make myself, friends and family happy and content – cause lets be real – most happy moments include or evolve around food or drink. 


1st Ave features many of the low glycemic, gluten free, keto and vegan foods I eat and want to share with others who choose to change their diets for a healthier life.
