The Cove

The Cove is locally owned & operated by Sam & Lisa Asvestas and a wonderful team.  Our passion is healthy, delicious food and live music.   The Cove restaurant was born in April 2001 as an after thought to a carwash and a coin laundry.  In the beginning we only served  ice cream and hot sandwiches.

As I discovered that I truly enjoyed the hospitality business and food; I continued to expand the restaurant.  We were now a smoky bar, that served bar food.  In 2003 I began studying Ayurveda.  Ayurveda is holistic medicine from India.  It teaches balance in life and most importantly that food is either  healing and nourishing or poisonous.  I began to change my eating habits, getting rid of processed food and fake food.  There was a contradicition about the food I was serving but would not [...]

A hop, skip, and stagger from the Blue Star Art Gallery is La Tuna Grill. Located just across the railroad tracks, this tin-clad eatery dishes up amazing food at great prices. Load up the arteries with the “Loaded Fries,” topped with bacon, sour cream, and cheddar – these spuds are worth it! The “La Tuna Trio” is another fave. Three mini burgers grilled to your preference, these would make Wimmpy whimper. And the freshly made bread pudding is supurb. Whether you want to hang out on the patioand people watch, or eat inside – it’s all good. TIP: Don’t make your first visit to La Tuna on the First Friday of each month – too loco!!!
