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 eat myself.  So I took the leap-and made The Cove my platform for Eat Well! Live Well!  The Cove will always be a work in progress.  Always striving to do things better. The Cove has been the hardest thing we have ever done, but also the most rewarding.
