Plenty of people ask about a plant they see's called Curry Plant.

Curry used in cooking is made up of many spices that vary depending on what part of the world that particular curry comes from.

The Curry Plant is an aromatic, ornamental plant that smells like curry. It is not a culinary plant, however its silver branching foliage is beautiful, and it smells great.

Pain D'Avignon Breads
Pain D'Avignon breads, bagels and croissants are available now. Croissants are brought in on Fridays and Saturdays, while bagels and bread are available Wednesday through Saturday.

Get a bagel toasted (add cream cheese or salmon, too) at the lunch counter, or have a breakfast sandwich, freshly made with eggs and your choice of bacon, ham and cheeses!
