“Geez, well you don’t have to dump it on us.” – Romance Removal Crew



And when we think of romance we immediately think of roses and treats and chocolates, right?  But why?

A tea by any other name…

According to the Greeks, the rose is the “king of flowers” and it first appearred with the birth of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty.

The Reuben: A Classic

No one loves a classic sandwich more than we do here at Ula Cafe.


"Make it again, Sam.  For old times’ sake.” 



One such example is the Reuben Sandwich.  In looking to put our own spin on it, we did a little research into the invention of such a delicious creation.  Apparently there is somewhat of a dispute concerning the origin of the Reuben.  Little did we know that it would come down to the ol’ Omaha/Manhattan feud.

Pumpkin Possibilities - BLFF 2012

Thank you to every one who came to the demo and stopped by our table at the Boston Local Food Festival last Sunday! We were so happy to share all of our macarons with you.  We had so much fun talking to new and familiar faces. A couple of us even got away from the tent to talk to some of the other great businesses at the festival. 

A real highlight for me was giving a demo I affectionately named “Pumpkin Possibilities”. Fall is our power season at the café because we love taking advantage of the warm cozy feeling we get when baking with all of the available local fall produce.
