Where can I park?
We do not have our own parking lot, so all parking is street parking. None of the nearby surrounding area is metered.
For other transportation options: We have bike racks along Selby Avenue, and the Metro Transit Bus 21 stops right in front of our storefront.
Do you take reservations?
Since we are a counter-service restaurant without a hostess or traditional wait staff, we operate on a first come first served basis.
If you have a large party planning to come in: We ask that you give us a call 15-20 minutes before your group arrives so we can do our best to accommodate you.
Do you do carry out orders?
Yes, however we do not take orders over the phone. You can place an order to-go at the counter, or order online (and skip the line!) here.
How do I order food?
Our menus are located along the black half wall as you walk in the door. You’ll place your order at our front register.
We’ll give you a number to display in the caddy at your table, which helps us find you when you’re food is ready to be brought out to you.
A tip!: You can always order drinks or a dessert at the far left end of the bar.
What items are gluten/nut/soy-free?
Our cashier has several allergy-friendly menus with them at the register. Feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Do you take tips?
J. Selby's is a no-tipping establishment.
What is the Community Bowl?
The community bowl is a pay-what-you-can option. We want everyone to have access to a hearty and delicious plant-based meal, with no worry about the cost.
Our suggested price is $5-11. Or - there are Community Bowl Tokens at our front register that have already been “paid-forward.” These may be redeemed for a free bowl.
Do you allow dogs inside?
We allow service animals with proper identification, but no other dogs or animals.
Do you have a patio?
We do not.
Can I sit down before I order food?
If there is no line and we are not busy - absolutely! However, once we reach a certain capacity, our ability to serve you well really depends on you ordering before you sit down.
If you are not able-bodied, have children or a baby, or there is any other reason standing in line is not an option for you, let any of us know and we will gladly facilitate an easier ordering process.
Why is your kitchen closed from 2 to 3 Sunday?
Our kitchen is small, so this hour is what’s needed to nd we have to change over from our brunch ingredients to our dinner items.
Can I purchase gift cards?
Yes! You can buy a digital one here or come into the restaurant for a physical one.
