This is SOUL FOOD. 

Good for the soul and the body. But ignore any desire to label this Williamsburg outlet 'crunchy granola' - because while they do grow their own food http://www.pigandegg.com/hayloft/?page_id=22 and reach out to the community in pragmatic ways - their menu doesn't pay the price. http://www.pigandegg.com/hayloft/?page_id=152
