Filoli, the historic estate with meticulously maintained gardens in Woodside, has partnered with Epicurean Group, a women- and minority-owned business, to provide food service at the on-site Quail Café. The partnership is expected to bring fresh food made on-site, more grab-and-go snack and drink offerings in the garden and gourmet-focused special events.
The Los Altos-based food services management company says it focuses on providing sustainable foods and plans to use produce sourced directly from Filoli's recently renovated vegetable garden, according to a press statement.
The cafe's winter menu includes Caesar, southwestern and beet salads; caprese, black forest ham and tri tip sandwiches; a sesame tofu wrap; and fresh baked quiche and daily soups, in addition to pastries such as scones, muffins, brownies and cookies.
The dining area at Quail Café is currently undergoing renovations, and until those are complete, food will be offered out of the Visitor Center. The cafe is slated to reopen Feb. 8. Food offerings are expected to expand once renovations are complete, according to an Instagram post from Filoli.
After Feb. 8, the cafe is expected to be open daily from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Reservations are not accepted, nor are cash payments.
