About Us

Welcome to Bistro One Twelve, a culinary gem nestled in the heart of the vibrant Santa Cruz Tannery Arts Center. Our bistro is more than just a dining destination; it’s a place where the community comes together to celebrate the finest in local cuisine, inspired by the bounty of our surroundings.

At Bistro One Twelve, we are passionately committed to the Farm-to-Table movement, which is at the core of everything we do. Our menu is a testament to our philosophy: “Decidedly Local, Aggressively Seasonal.” This approach ensures that we spotlight the freshest, most flavorful ingredients available, with a special emphasis on vegetables. While our menu celebrates the plant-based bounty of our region, we also thoughtfully incorporate sustainably-raised animal proteins and dairy to create a harmonious balance of flavors.

Our culinary creations are simple yet sophisticated, offering a casual dining experience without compromising on the meticulous attention to detail and quality that you’d expect from fine dining. Our seasonal and regular salads, French-inspired baguette sandwiches, and gourmet flatbread pizzas are prepared with a deep respect for the ingredients. Each plate is a reflection of our distinct European influence, seamlessly blended with the cultural diversity of California. The Mediterranean climate and the seasonal produce it yields inspire us to constantly innovate and delight our guests with dishes that are as nourishing as they are delicious.

The atmosphere at Bistro One Twelve is designed to be warm and welcoming, making it the perfect gathering spot for friends, family, and art enthusiasts who populate the Tannery Arts Center. Whether you’re here to enjoy a leisurely meal, a quick bite, or a special occasion, our team is dedicated to providing you with an exceptional dining experience.
