Farmer’s Kitchen located in the Starbuck’s plaza has a large variety of bakery goods along side its breakfast, lunch and dinner menu offerings.

Granby’s expanding restaurant options are a welcome addition to both the business and residential communities in town. The latest addition is another fine offering by James and Sandy Chen.  Farmers Kitchen emphasizes breakfast, lunch and dinner takeout. Vegetables, fruits and dairy products are locally sourced whenever possible. The menu features healthy and creative options not offered in most takeout restaurants. There is family-style seating inside and several tables available for outdoor dining. You are always welcome to bring your own alcohol. The restaurant is located at the former home of ABC Pizza and is open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Sunday.

In just a few months, Farmers Kitchen  has already become known for its high quality, reasonably priced breakfast options. The Benedicts, brisket hash and buttermilk waffles are already local favorites. You would be hard pressed to find a better breakfast selection for the cost in the Granby/Simsbury area. The lunch and dinner offerings center around a barbecue platform featuring brisket, ribs and chicken from the in-house smoker. Grilled cheese and baked macaroni and cheese are favorite menu items for local children. There are also family meal choices for four to five people featuring ribs, a smoked or fried chicken and a large selection of sides. The Reuben is also a local favorite.  Some say it’s the best Reuben they have ever had.  Another feature at the restaurant is a large selection of baked goods and desserts.  There is never a shortage of fresh baked goods available for takeout in the display case.  Creampuffs, scones, key lime pie, muffins, biscuits and cornbread—to name just a few of the baked offerings.

As with the other restaurants owned by James and Sandy, Farmers Kitchen offers excellent, full service catering. With the talented chefs and bakers chosen for this restaurant, Farmers Kitchen will certainly be a welcome addition to the expanding culinary options in Granby.
