Garden Cafe

The Columbia Nursery and Florist now has a Garden Cafe at its business on Parrotts Ferry Road in Sonora.

The cafe has sandwiches, quiche, salads, desserts, smoothies and specialty coffee drinks. Indoor and outdoor seating is available, as well as a delivery service.

The business is owned and operated by Tricia Peller, a Tuolumne County native, and her husband Matt. The couple bought the business in 2006 and decided to open the Garden Cafe in May to diversify it.

For a second year in a row, the business has opened its farm stand where local gardeners can bring their extra harvest to sell.
