Bent Creek Bistro

We hand-prepare locally sourced, fresh & seasonal fare!

From hearty sandwiches and hand cut salads to homemade soups and small batch sweets, everything is made with as many local ingredients as possible.

Closed Until Further Notice

At this time, the Bistro is closed until further notice due to staffing issues. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to reopen soon! In the meantime, please feel free to bring your own picnic lunch to enjoy out in the beauty of the Arboretum’s 420-acre campus. We just ask that you please dispose of any waste in the proper receptacle. Thank you!
