Thank you for your review. We are currently for sale, BUT ARE NOT CLOSING. When we do find a buyer, they may continue Calico or make a change. Until we find a buyer it is business as usual!

Their baked goods are of the highest quality. The place is spotless and the people behind the counter are always lovely.

This is a lovely small restaurant attached to an all-too-good bakery. The food is gourmet quality -- great ingredients: interesting preparations splendidly cooked. All of that and reasonably priced. The host and hostess are delightful.

Order the rack of lamb if they have it that night or you can call a few days in advance and tell them you want a rack of lamb. They will get it for you. If you like lamb, it's fabulous!
