#PAYITFORWARD: Eats & Sweet Serves Up Community Minded (& Sourced) Portions

This is the final guest blog for our our 30 day Pay-It-Forward Initiative is written by Nancy Young. We featured small businesses and non-profits nominated by our community throughout the month of December.Learn more about the initiative!

In this world of super-sized portions, it is such a treat to take my grandchildren to Eats & Sweets in downtown Lafayette Colorado where a “bambino” cone is available for ice cream lovers of all ages – and the price is right too.  Not only is the serving just enough (two inch cone topped by a single, small scoop) but the ice cream is all natural from local supplier Boulder Ice Cream.   This is true for most everything else offered on the menu – create your own sandwich from a variety of healthy breads plus choose your filling, your spreads, and your greens – thus get what YOU want. From the desserts to the sandwiches to the soups ‘n salads, everything at Eats & Sweets is fresh and sourced locally whenever possible.

If a kid-friendly restaurant is important to you, owners Bobby and Gretchen Pangilinan have created an environment where you AND your special little ones will feel welcome – tables and chairs both tiny and tall, serving sizes both large and small, price points to please, and outside tables overlooking a sweet pocket park.  Even if you don’t have children in tow, Eats & Sweets and its community-based approach is sure to please you.

Join me in bringing your business (and your favorite little person!) to Eats & Sweets. You won’t be disappointed!
