Atilla the Hen (Fried Chicken Sandwich). Gluten-free and dairy-free. This is a “buttermilk” fried chicken breast (made with local chicken), Cocoabeans special sauce, lettuce, tomato, and house-made bread and butter pickles (onion and cucumber), all on our amaranth bun. Gluten-free and dairy-free. It can be made egg-free by subbing our Red Mill vegan bun for the amaranth bun. The feature comes with a choice of side: soup of the day, fries, or house salad (or upgrade your side to a vegan caesar salad or sweet potato fries).
