“Food should be flavorful and uninhibited” Isador’s Organics mission is to work with local farmers & support New England’s agriculture and local artisans. Bon Appetit!
Isador’s Organics is a chef-driven cafe that specializes in quick serve slow food. We have fun with food and believe that food should be fresh, flavorful, and uninhibited. We have been in business for 11 years and enjoy working with local farmers while supporting New England agriculture and local artisans. Our cafe serves sandwiches, homemade soup and salads, freshly pressed juice and smoothies, vegetarian dishes, and a variety of fun and creative daily specials. Isador’s also offers catering for corporate or private events. Additionally, Isador’s delivers organic produce boxes to homes and businesses all around Central Massachusetts.
After many years working as a cook, Justin liked the idea of being his own boss and creating his own restaurant. He has always loved the conversations that germinate around food and has built his life around that. Justin is inspired by the ingredients of the seasons and his ideas come from that excitement. Isador’s Organics has been and continues to be a built-in lifelong learning experience.
When Isador’s first opened, we were in a barn behind another building on Main Street so for the first five years in operation, it was a challenge to get exposure. Since then, being directly on Main Street has helped, but there is always the challenge of letting people know who we are and all that we have to offer. The key is also to find the right people – to curate a team that is inspired by food and whose values align with the mission of the company. It can be challenging to find the right group but when it happens, it’s priceless. The days are long and there are always dishes to wash, but it’s worth it to have our place on Main Street, Oxford.
