Soups: All made here in our own kitchen, using basic ingredients and spices. We DO NOT add products containing gluten to our soups, the only exceptions being vegetable and chicken broth which both contain barley. We ALWAYS begin the serving with vegan options. Most of our soups are low fat, containing a trace of oil used in the initial sauteing of vegetables . Look at our soup labels as indication

At Sugarhouse we do things in the traditional way; our Artisan Panini’s and Focaccia are carefully toasted on the grill, not quickly heated in an oven   Sometimes it may take a little while to prepare your food, please be patient whilst we make it especially for you. All chicken is home roasted chicken breast.
