Fork & Spoon opens on Madrone Lane

A new restaurant called Fork & Spoon opened last week in a small space on Madrone Lane.

Blackbird Bakery owners Jeff Shepard and Heidi Umphenour opened the small café just around the corner from the bakery. It features soups, sandwiches and salads for lunch, with appetizers, beer and wine served at night.

Manager Lena Davidson said they expected a slow start, “but it’s been much busier than we expected. We’ve been slammed, and it probably won’t slow down with the warmer weather coming soon.”

Kit Hutchin and John Koval, owners and operators of Churchmouse Yarns & Teas on Madrone Lane, have been named 2011 Business Couple of the Year by the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce.
