    Dave Clark and Lisa Piper (the owners) have been serving people for over 7 years starting with a cafe in Minneapolis.  They place a priority on making people feel welcome and comfortable.  They moved to Pittsboro to start this cafe and B&B after researching the abundant natural and organic farming resources and the arts and culture found in the community.
