Located in downtown Fairfax, Taste is an eat-in or take-out full-service bakery & cafe. Their terrific food is made from organic, seasonal, fresh-from-the-farm ingredients. Rochelle and Lorenzo, the owners, have been donating their delicious savory and sweet pastries and salads to us whenever they have extras. The seniors at nearby Bennett House look forward to these tasty treats!
