A Letter From The Chef

A Letter From The Chef

by Mattias Kriemelmeyer, Executive Chef

Here at the Water Street Café we are determined to make 2011 the best year yet. I want to thank you, our patrons, for your continued support. You are the driving force behind what we do and we are working very hard to accommodate all types of dietary needs and personal tastes. I sincerely hope we have made strides to satisfying your needs.

Last year’s member and customer survey, along with your input via customer comment cards, have given us insight into the wants and needs of our members and customers. We hear your voices and we are responding. If we do not always reply verbally to your comments, as we receive many, be assured that your voice is being heard and we take them all very seriously. Please share your thoughts with us. You may be surprised by what a polite critique can accomplish.

We are excited to add new items to our ever growing selection at the Café.  You can now enjoy an expanded breakfast offering with our “New Morning” Breakfast Bar every Monday through Saturday from 8:30 – 10:30 am; including organic and local, as well as vegan, options to start your day.  We have new panino specials that change weekly, along with drink specials from our espresso and Italian soda bar.

We continue to offer a wide variety of hot lunch themes that allow you to taste the flavor of the world right here in Decorah. Our commitment to local and organic ingredients continues with our use of produce, meats and breads from within our 100-mile local radius. We take our responsibility as leaders in the sustainable food movement very seriously and we strive to offer quality food at a reasonable price. Voting with your food dollars makes it all possible.

Again, we welcome your comments and look forward to serving you in the future.  I sincerely thank you for supporting the OCC and The Water Street Café in our community building mission.

See you at the Co-op!
