On Safari Foods opens a "hidden gem" of a cafe

When On Safari Foods moved from their location on 35th S.W. in 2011 they did so because they had become so successful at their catering business they simply needed more room.

The company regular provides catering services to companies like Google and also provides the food for private events such as weddings or corporate meetings.

Now, they've taken the next step. Owner Teresa Carew said they have opened up a cafe. "On Safari Café right in the heart of our commissary space at 3317 3rd Ave. S. This hidden gem has already had many repeat customers. The On Safari Café provides a vehicle for Maria Lofgren and her team to showcase delicious homemade soups, glorious ever-changing eclectic entrees, and a meatball and boerewors roll, the likes you might not have seen anywhere else, made with bread baked daily in our pizza oven."

The café is open Mon-Fri. from 11.00 a.m. – 4.00 p.m. serving hot food from 11.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m.

On Thursday Jan. 23 they are hosting their Open House. Carew said, "Our friend from Three Howls Distillery will be making cocktails and we will be doing beer, wine and a specialty cocktail. The party is from 5.00 – 8.00 p.m."
