Our Story

Who Are We?

Sage Café is a welcoming and comfortable casual lunch café in the heart of historic downtown Carlisle. What first began as a dream in 2019 by Taryn Farhat is now a beautiful space for all to enjoy. We are thrilled to welcome locals and tourists alike to taste our delicious meals, gather with your favorite company, and relax for a few hours in a space that feels like home.

Located at 22 West Pomfret Street in Carlisle, PA, Sage Café is the freshly renovated former Piatto restaurant space. This clean and fresh building is now the home of a contemporary-style restaurant with a focus on amazing food and premier service.

In the spring, summer, and fall months, we welcome you to join us in our outdoor spaces and take in the beautiful scenery of the city. We offer patio dining and sidewalk seating, perfect for enjoying the fresh air and lovely afternoon sunshine.

Our Mission & Goal

Taryn has many years of experience in the restaurant industry and has teamed up with long-time, award-winning friend, Travis Mumma, to head the kitchen. The thought-filled menu features both revitalized classics and inventive, original dishes, all prepared with heart and care by our trusted staff.

Sage Café’s goal is to provide our community with cuisine and service rarely seen and often missed in restaurants today. We welcome all guests, from longtime friends who need a casual space to gather to large groups looking for a warm and inviting private dining experience.

We welcome you to join us for a visit. We would be honored to have you as our guests!
