Tim Lipman of Coolinary Cafe: Serve Food That Is Honest, Fresh, Simple, and Refined

Tastemaker #14, Tim Lipman, and his wife Jenny, are the cool kids behind Coolinary Cafe, Jupiter's 47-seat eatery that is so often so packed, reservations are recommended for the nightly seatings. What's most impressive, however, is that Lipman changes his specials menu twice daily.

Such frequent menu changes is a habit Lipman learned as the original executive chef for well-known Jupiter establishments Little Moir's Leftovers Cafe and Little Moir's Food Shack, where he was known for putting out 10 to 15 new dishes, two times a day.

A Florida native, Limpan is steadfast about product sourcing, buying as much as he can close to home: produce from The Peddler in Juno Beach, milk from Daikin Dairy in Myakka, honey from McCoy's in Loxahatchee, and eggs from Lake Meadow in Ocoee. And what he can't buy local, he grows himself in community gardens his team has established nearby.
