We like to keep things light and fresh here at Pomona! For the perfect partner to your coffee, we offer grilled bread baked by our neighborhood bakery Sub Rosa where they mill whole grains in house and bake in a wood-fired oven. To accompany your bread, you can choose from our rotating list of seasonal and house made spreads, ranging from fruit chutneys to local cheese.
For those with a larger appetite, you will find seasonal salads, ouef cocottes (shirred eggs), open face sandwiches, and our signature “bean toast”.
We start with local and organic ingredients, highlighting healthy proteins such as legumes, pasture raised eggs, and cheese
You will also find freshly baked sweets, house made herbal sodas, nut-based milks, shrubs, and herbal teas.
Pomona proudly serves coffee roasted by Blanchard’s Coffee Roasting Co. We believe in their philosophy that when done right, the coffee trade can support and rebuild communities and ecosystems, based on solid relationships.
We feature a selection of their “single origin” beans sourced from Kenya to Colombia as well as a variety specialty blends.
You can also enjoy rotating beverage adaptations with our house made coffee, sodas and milks.
In addition to dining, Pomona operates as a retail space offering a wide variety of houseplants and objects for plant enthusiasts. Our shelves are filled with pots, plant care tools, greeting cards, and herbal based aromatherapy. Local artisans are often featured along with local herbalists, potters, and growers.
When the season permits, we use our patio to host native Virginia landscaping plants, herbs, and vegetable seedlings. Our team is here to guide you towards the best plant choice for your home and personality.
We also host rotating workshops to help expand your knowledge of plant life and personal wellness.
