    Get a mimosa carafe, country poutine the beignets for brunch! Sit at the bar and you can see your meal being freshly prepared. Nice to take a look around the market afterwards

    "Society Fair is both an old-world concept and something very modern. It's where to find fresh breads, cheeses, desserts, butchered meats, stocks, cocktail mixers... but also where to find dinner."

    A bit pricey for a small lunch. Pope's Lunch was great - prosciutto, basil, arugula, red onion, balsamic vinaigrette on a crusty baguette. Small but quality beer selection.

    At the self-described "epicurean emporium" you'll be able to pick up freshly baked bread and pastries, homemade charcuterie, hand-made drink mixers. Read more

    "Society Fair is not a restaurant. It’s a bakery and a butcher, a cheese shop with desserts, a sandwich counter, a wine bar, and once a week, live theater." - November 2012 Issue

    The Wild Card coffee is great! Typically it's some type of mocha with a seasonal spin. Right now it's gingerbread, awesome!

    My Turkish Cousin: Thinly sliced rosy lamb shoulder, wrapped with garlicky sauteed spinach and sweet nuggets of preserved grapes smashed together within a doughy flatbread. —Stefanie Gans

    The sandwiches were great - but the service was horrific... Everything that could go wrong, did. The 'barley 18' pompous staff at the front counter couldn't have cared less.

    There are some amazing gems in the refrigerated section like fresh beef broth and veal demi glace. Save yourself time in the kitchen without sacrificing flavor or quality!

    The buttermilk biscuits are like homemade. The service process needs work, though. If your guests need a sign or employees to remind them, it’s not intuitive, and can be improved.

    They're known for their coconut cake. Lots of coconutty flavor and serves 10 people. Needs 24 hours notice.
