CHARLESTOWN – Looking for tasty, reasonably priced meals in a quiet, mellow location? Head to the Small Axe Cafe.
The Small Axe Cafe opened on the rural grounds of the Umbrella Factory in December after the previous management shut it down more than three years ago. Current owners Mark Pendola and Gino Turano saw that the space was available and used their connections to open the Small Axe Cafe.
While working on cooking some fresh food for two local patrons, Pendola said, “We are looking to turn the place into its own farm, putting out high quality food.” He also mentioned that the rustic seating was bought from the original owners.
Pendola said that they are in collaboration with Small Axe, who supplies pottery for all the dishes and mugs that are hand crafted by Dave Turano and the owners of the Small Axe Productions.
“It provides a uniqueness with our plates and our own produce,” Pendola explained.
He then served the two patrons, who have made this their second trip to the Small Axe since its reopening. They were clearly enjoying their food and exclaimed that the cafe provides “Good food for good prices.”
More information is available in this week's The Chariho Times. Small Axe is located at 4820 Old Post Road in Charlestown.
