The Kids in The Hall

Stay tuned as The Kids in The Hall explore European cuisine and develop exciting new menu items as part of their training.
Get a taste of what foodies call “irrationally delicious pizza” from 515 Pi. Using hand pressed dough and the freshest ingredients, each inspired pizza is fired fast to order and served bubbling hot. Pizza Meister Brad Bormann was the first in the nation to put an 850 degree Woodstone oven in a truck. Why you ask - cuz they said it couldn't be done.
Charlotte’s Belgian Waffle Cookies
Charlotte’s Belgian Waffle Cookies is named after our Grandma Charlotte Noble who taught us how to bake, to live life to the fullest, and most importantly to extend love to each person we meet. The recipe is authentically Belgian, and in every waffle we extend a little bit of Grandma Charlotte’s love to you. Each favorite on our menu is dedicated to a Noble--Grandma Charlotte, Grandpa Jim and all of their kids --- so pick your favorite and taste the love!
