Dahlias and Espresso at Argus on Packard

Argus has expanded to a second location on Packard St (near the Zen Buddhist Temple and the Vacuum store, depending on what landmarks are important to you..!)  Zlatko and I got to stop by for the “soft opening” this morning and it was amazing. The space is huge, much larger than their Liberty location, beautifully remodeled and full of all your favorite local foods. We enjoyed pastries and espresso with friends and watched a parade of local food celebs pass through, including Farmer Alex from Seeley Farm, Dave Steinhauser, and Jon Goetz from Goetz Farm and

more.  We even got to say “hello” to sinks and shelves from Harvest Kitchen’s old location that we had sold to the Argus folks.  We can tell Argus 2.0 is off to a great start and wish them the best of success for many years to come.  Note that a fabulous selection of Harvest Kitchen products is available in their expansive prepared foods fridge, and we hope to offer the Packard location as a pick up for pre-orders starting sometime soon. Stop by sometime and check it out!
