The same products you taste in our store you can take home, to upgrade and make food preparation easy. By purchasing from D.O.A., you know you are supporting small scale producers and their families, and acquiring quality products.
As artisan as possible is in our DNA. We are passionate for craftsmanship. That's why we make a great part of what we offer, and know personally our partner small scale producers.
Our menu aims at responsible and sustainable consumption of quality products. We search for craft and local materials such as out own organic and 100% national flour for sourdough bread, charcuterie, tartines, pies, quiches, cakes, jams, sodas, all made in-house. As for the coffee, it is selected from small batches and freshly ground.
Other than our own production, we select craft products from partner artisans, with the highest quality.
Based on our idea of as artisan as possible, we do not use a large scale food storage. Our products are limited and may run out at any time of the day. That means that everything you eat is always fresh, with no food preservatives, honest and connected to the hard work of craft producers.
Every drink has its moment, but all, when made with special care and passion that only craft producers can give, elevate taste to something without equal.
Tartines are our specialty. Forget the toasts you know. Ours are a true healthy, joyful and honest meal. Made with sour dough natural fermentation bread made in-house, with natural, organic and 100% national flour, combined to proteins, nuts, fruits and vegetables from small scale producers, our tartines are an excellent option of meal for any time of the day.
If you want a break from tradicional standards for meals, you can also choose our cheese and charcuterie, quiches, pies or salad bowls.
