“World Of Tastes in Lake City” Returns

Pick Up Your “Passport” Starting June 8th And Start Enjoying Lake City

This program to support local establishments will run until September 22nd 2017. Passports with enough stamps to qualify for a prize should be returned to the Kaffeeklatsch by close of business on September 22nd.

Simply make a purchase at any of the participating establishments, present your passport and receive a stamp. Don’t forget to thank the business for taking part.

Passports will be available at the Kaffeeklatsch as well as other of the participating businesses. You can always pick one up at the Lake City Farmers Market and they will be made available at various public events throughout the program.

Please take part in this program to support some of our most treasured Lake City Businesses. You can partner with friends, family and neighbors to qualify for the drawing on whatever level is comfortable. We are hopeful that this  program helps to  demonstrate our community’s ability to support our local small businesses.

We are hopeful that you find a new favorite spot and have fun visiting the ones you already have come to love. These businesses provide Lake City with its “flavor” and it is up to us as a community to help keep them here.

We have three levels of prizes indicated on the passport so that more people can take part in the fun. Winners will be chosen at random and one winner from each of the three tiers of prizes will be awarded. Winners will be contacted via the contact information on the passport within 30 days of the closing of the program.

The First 20 participants to turn in a passport with 7 or more stamps will automatically receive a $10 Gift Card to the Farmers Market

A big thank you goes out to all the businesses taking part as well as our sponsoring businesses – Two Dog Yoga, Kaffeeklatsch, Manila Manila, Elliott Bay Brewery and the Lake City Farmers Market.

What Happened to Romios?

Still Here with Same Owners, New Name and New Vision

LCFF had a chance to catch up with Petya Kaneva, owner of Villa Verdi, formally Romios Pizza. Petya has been doing business in Lake City for about seven years now and oversaw the recent move from their previous location on LCW  to the new spot at 12360 NE.

How many of you remember Claire’s Pantry?

Petya said that many people had been calling and concerned that they would be loosing their favorite dishes from the Romios menu. She assured me that, while the name has changed, they are retaining the items from the Romios menu. The name change comes with the addition of a wood fired oven and that comes with wood fired pizza. Petya also let me know that the community could expect daily specials and a bit more concentration on Italian style food. They are waiting for the new logo on the menus and a new sign on the front of the building. Check em out when you are out Enjoying Lake City.

“Would you like affordable and great tasting Filipino food within Lake City? Then Manila Manila would be your first choice!

Manila Manila also doubles as a store selling products that can help you create your own dishes with products found only in the Philippines. Every dish that she makes is homemade.
