Get it & Go … or Eat it Here
Stone Creek Kitchen offers fresh, wholesome and delicious food, for lunch and dinner, Monday through Saturday. The food from our kitchen is made from the best seasonal ingredients we can find and prepared with love and care. Although you can probably count on the availability of our bestseller list, our offerings change with the seasons, the availability of perfectly fresh ingredients, and what might be inspiring our cooks. If our produce folk deliver a flat of juicy fruit then something sweet will be added to the menu without warning!
To see spur of the moment specials check our Facebook feed on our homepage every day.
Our kitchen crew is busy creating dishes from scratch so you don’t have to! We now have an indoor seating area.
Truly a party in a pan, we make paella fresh every Friday afternoon so that you can start your weekend off in the most festive way possible. Stop by and pick some up on your way home! We sell our paella by the pound and it can be packaged into a To Go box for you. Simply reheat it when you are ready to serve it.
We specialize in traditional Spanish paella which is typically made with poultry, dry Spanish chorizo, seafood, chicken, bomba rice, smoked piquillo peppers, wine, and seasonal vegetables.
Our 15″ pan of paella contains only 3 cups of rice so it is a very rich and abundant dish. Our paella costs $16.99 a pound.
Need a Pan for a Party?
Call us on Wednesday to arrange to take an entire pan of paella home (or to the beach!) on Friday. It is offered in 15″ pans which will feed between 8 to 10 people generously. We charge for the weight of the paella in the pan. This will vary from pan to pan since each is individually crafted. Generally a pan of paella weighs between 8 and 10 pounds. The weight of the pan itself if deducted from the total.
Pan Deposit: If you arrange to take your paella home in a pan, we ask for a deposit equal to the pan’s retail price. If you bring the pan back we will refund your deposit. Or, you may keep the pan so that you can make paella at home.
What do I serve with paella?
Starters might include Spanish cheeses, marinated olives. And don’t forget the Marcona almonds! Look in our Fresh Pack department for ideas and supplies.
Consider serving a crisp green salad with the paella. And, of course, some sangria or Spanish wine. Ask us for wine recommendations. We carry lots of reasonably priced, ready to drink wine that pairs perfectly with paella.
We offer an array of fresh, wholesome and delicious dishes. In addition to sandwiches and salads, a number of main dishes are available for lunch and dinner. The menu is always changing and is very seasonal. Below find the current menu.

Olive Oils & Vinegars
Come in and taste various olive oils, vinegars we offer.
We carry a wide variety of olive oil from Italy, Spain, Greece and California. We can offer you a taste of each so that you can determine which type and style you prefer.
We also offer two “house” olive oils because we think every kitchen should have both a “lubricant” grade and a “condiment” quality oil for various uses. Although both our house oils are high quality extra virgin olive oil, our lubricant oil is especially good for sautéing, roasting and frying. And our condiment oil is recommended for dressing, dipping, drizzling.
We also feature premium quality house balsamic vinegar with a robust fruity flavor.
