Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to some more common questions we get here at J. Selby's. If you have a question you'd like answered, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
What are your hours?
Monday 4 pm – 10 pm
Tuesday - Thursday 11 am – 10 pm
Friday 11 am – 11 pm
Saturday 8 am – 11 pm
Sunday 8 am – 8 pm
Please keep in mind, on Saturdays and Sundays we only serve brunch until 2PM. When brunch ends at 2PM, our kitchen is closed until 3PM while we transition over to the regular menu. You are able to order drinks and dessert during this time. At 3PM we start taking orders for food!
We will NOT be open on Memorial Day, Monday, May 29th, Tuesday, July 4 or Labor Day, Monday September 4.
Where can I park?
Right now it's mostly street parking. We do not have a parking lot. We also are working on getting bike racks for our cycling friends!
Do you take reservations?
Since we are not a restaurant with a hostess or traditional wait staff, we do not do reservations. Unfortunately, due to an increase in volume, we have decided to suspend reservations of the community table. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
Do you do carry out orders?
We do not take orders over the phone, but we do offer a To-Go option when you order at the counter. Because we only use compostable to-go containers, we have a small surcharge on to-go orders. Please let us know first, before you tell our cashier what you want as that will make it easier and your food will be prepared in the order it was received.
How do I order food?
We ask that you first select a menu and decide what you want before approaching the counter. When ready, please go to the counter (look for the Order Here on the chalkboard). We give you a number to place on the stand where you sit once you've paid and later bring the food out to you. We ask that you do not sit until you've ordered when there is a long line.
What items are gluten free?
We use the phrase gluten sensitive (gs) instead as we can't guarantee anything is gluten free due to cross contamination, but the items that are gluten sensitive are marked with a gs. You may also ask to see one of our Gluten Sensitive menus.
Do you take tips?
No. Our employees make a living wage. Instead of that we ask that you purchase a Community Bowl Token. This can be redeemed for our Community Bowl on the menu. You may either keep the token to pass along to someone or Pay it Forward and we do that for you.
What is the Community Bowl?
The community bowl is a pay what you can option. It's our way of helping others have access to a delicious, hearty plant-based meal without worrying about the cost. The suggested price is $2 to $9.
Are you kosher?
We are! Learn more about that here. That means we do NOT allow outside food or drink.
