FAQ

All meal experiences are prix-fixe. We offer two distinct experiences for your evening meal, a 3-course early session and the later 5-course second session, and a Saturday brunch station experience. Any experience is available for either table seating or the more limited seating Chef’s Counter. Wednesday and Thursday session pricing is meant to widen and strengthen our local community’s connections. It is important to note that the price you see on the reservation/ticket page is the price you pay, except for PA sales tax. All food, non-alcoholic beverages and service fees are included.

In REspect for the living wage, meal prices include a service fee which allows us to fairly compensate our staff. Tipping is not expected, do not feel obligated to leave anything extra unless you feel the service was truly exceptional and should be rewarded.

No, we are BYOB. Wine may be more appropriate because we do not offer ice or mixer service for liquor. There is no corkage fee. We do age check all diners at any table where alcohol is to be served and abide by all other PA liquor regulations. For our REmembers and frequent visitors, we offer secure wine storage.

We will do our best to accommodate guests who inform us of unexpected delays. Especially for the first session, if arriving late for your reservation time your evening’s experience may be shortened because of guests arriving for the later session.

As all our reservations require tickets purchased in advance, we don’t want anyone to leave a request on voicemail and then show up only to be disappointed. If you are experiencing trouble with the system, please call and speak directly with a manager (814-321-5097) who will assist you with your reservation.

We want to create an intimate environment for our guests at the best price possible. Advance reservation/ticket sales allow us to anticipate who is coming in and prepare food to accommodate those guests only, thereby reducing food waste.

No. Just like a sporting event, concert or theatre ticket all sales are final. Tickets may be rescheduled with at least five days’ notice prior to the reserved experience date. Should you not use a ticket, rest assured that you are “paying it forward” because it will fund tickets given to local social agencies for distribution to clients as they deem appropriate.

We do not offer a gift card for meal experiences, however, you are always able to purchase a ticket (Tock) and then transfer it to anyone. Gift certificates for RE Farm Café products, classes or workshops are available online at refarmcafe.com or at the Café.

Tickets are fully transferable to others at any time. To transfer a ticket go to the Tock site, “My Account” area and using the upper right navigation pane select “Your Bookings”. Each ticket has a transfer button next to it.

We decided not to "pave paradise and put up a parking lot". We have limited parking on the farm, and in our quest to be mindful of our transportation impact, guests will have one parking place per reservation for up to 4 people. We encourage carpooling and/or using ride-sharing services.

Yes, in fact, we offer an incentive if you bike or hike! Just inform your service team and as a thank you, each rider/walker will receive a $5 REpay gift certificate for any RE goods and services other than meals. You might also consider a first seating reservation, it is more casual and family oriented. A bike rack is adjacent to the Cafe entrance.

Our menu changes daily based on seasonality. We try to post each day's offering on our website (refarmcafe.com) by noon. Sample menus from recent meals are on the website as well. Fresh and most often local but always responsibly sourced meat, poultry, fish and vegetarian options are always available.

The overwhelming majority of foods on your plate, other than some fish, spices, and oils come from less than 50 miles away, much of it from our own Windswept or other neighbor farms.

We invite families to tour the gardens, weather permitting, at 4p each evening before the early session. Tickets for both the early dinner sessions and brunch for children 3 to 10 years of age are $20. We encourage children to explore and expand their culinary acuity by enjoying the flavors of the day’s regular menu offerings, just in smaller portions.

We offer many wheat-free options, but because of possible cross-contamination, we are not totally gluten-free. Will we always adjust seasonings and ingredients to your taste, dietary restriction or food allergy.

No. Everyone is required to purchase a reservation/ticket in advance. Tickets for any experience are available online until all are sold.

RE Farm Cafe has a casually elegant feel and our guests seem most comfortable in casual business attire. Since we offer a guided tour of the gardens before the first session, this earlier time is more family oriented and casual. Later in the evening, the second session attire can be dressier.

Our intimate REfectory perfectly accommodates up to 25 dinner guests. Please contact us at manager@refarmcafe.com for availability. RE Farm Café is available for larger private functions up to 75 guests, and we also can accommodate up to 180 guests in our outside tented venue. Please contact us at events@refarmcafe.com
