Safety Precautions

Seating and Physical Distancing

We have arranged our seating plan so there is 6 feet between tables.

There is a Face Covering Mandate in Dane County. Every individual (5 years of age or older) must wear a face covering over their nose and mouth while inside our cafe except while they are seated at their table. We request that customers wear face coverings until they receive their first drink or food item. Outdoor dining and carryout are available if you cannot wear a mask. Thank you for respecting the safety of other guests and our employees!


Our Employees

All employees will be screened for illness upon arrival to work each day, including a fever screening with a temporal thermometer. Our employees sign off on a Health Reporting agreement, which requires them to self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms before coming to work, and to stay home if they have COVID-19 symptoms or if they’ve had contact with a person with a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19.

Employees are always required to wear masks while working.

Employees wear gloves while working in the kitchen and when touching ready to eat food, but will not wear gloves while providing table service. This protocol is based on the recommendation from Public Health Madison & Dane County. Employees will wash their hands regularly, for 20 seconds or longer, which is more effective and efficient than having to change gloves repeatedly.

Work shifts are staggered for employees and we limit the number of workers present to no more than is necessary to operate our cafe safely.

Employees are trained and sign off on our new physical distancing, hygiene, cleaning, and illness screening policies, and retrained on proper handwashing and sanitation procedures.


Facility Cleaning & Disinfection

We regularly clean high touch surfaces throughout the day, including tables, chairs, door knobs, handles, keypads, registers, touch screens, credit card readers, and pens.

Our cafe has established a cleaning schedule and increased the frequency of facility cleaning and disinfection.

We have a plan in place for cleaning and disinfecting in the event of a positive COVID-19 case in our cafe and will follow all guidance/requirements by Public Health Madison & Dane County and CDC.

There will be hand sanitizer available for customers and at all employee work stations.

We are using chemicals on the EPA list (N) of antimicrobial agents that meet their criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2. We use broad-spectrum Quaternary-based hospital grade disinfectant cleaner to clean all seating, tables, dining room, and restroom surfaces. We use Steramine Quaternary Ammonium in our kitchen, and on and around food contact surfaces.


Our Customers

Do not visit our cafe if you are currently experiencing a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, or if you have been in contact with a person who is COVID-19 positive. Please use proper sneeze and cough etiquette.

We request that you wear a mask upon entering our cafe and anytime you are not sitting at a dining table.

We ask that you do not wear gloves into our cafe. Read more about the risks associated with glove use in public places here. Hand sanitizer and kleenex is available for customers in our dining room. Our restrooms will be fully stocked with hand washing supplies.
