Happy Birthday Shaky Leaf Café


Last Friday the Shaky Leaf Café at celebrated its 2nd birthday! We decorated the café for the day with balloons and streamers, and Tiffani made some beautiful birthday cakes for dessert. Alex also made sure to coordinate the frozen yogurt flavors with birthday cake as one of the options.

It has been an exciting year, most recently with our beginning the new style service of à la carte choices. Thank you to our team who work hard every day to make things better and for the Ancestry team who work with us to make it happen.

Independent Restaurants

This video highlights many of the things that we love about local, independent restaurants — these kinds of establishments bring personality to downtown areas and neighborhoods, draw business and traffic to these areas, and they become an integral part of their communities. We are proud to be a part of the vibrant communities in our area with the other independent restaurants, boutiques, shops, and businesses that are located next-door and around the corner.
