Like the name suggests, the owners are believers of the story of Jesus and the multiplying of five loaves of bread and 2 fish resounded with them. “We want to share our food and His word with everyone who walks through our doors.” In every corner, you’ll find a mixture of bible verses, motivational posters and words of encouragement for weary souls who might be passing through.
It seems like the divine passed through not just the owners but the food they offer as well. 5 Loaves & 2 Fish has an expansive comfort food menu—from ebi tempura to callos—that will make you believe in miracles.
