Kitchen – Bakery – Cafe To-Go

Savor the taste and smells of hand crafted biscotti.  Good Eats Diva invites you to experience the flavor, texture and essence of our legendary, hand-crafted biscotti that you love & more.

We make small, unique batches of biscotti with high quality, fresh ingredients, natural flavorings, and no preservatives, creating an incredibly distinct and outstanding taste.  Good Eats Diva takes the time to make each biscotti loaf by hand, rolling, shaping and cutting to create a truly authentic product.

Good Eats Diva’s new home is a “Soho-style” location right here in Lansing, Michigan! Large paned windows in a 1940’s renovated building, which also houses the Allen Neighborhood Center, with beautiful morning sun pouring in. Enjoy lofty ceilings, open kitchen and a stand-up bar while savoring a quick breakfast or mid-morning snack.  Appreciate the heart of good food and the importance of quality natural ingredients.

In this boutique production kitchen, Good Eats Diva has select seasonal early morning hours (check our Website for a list of our hours) offering Italian brewed coffee with fresh muffins, scones, coffee cakes, breakfast bars or granola to-go. We also offer hours by appointment for on-line order pick-up and are open Wednesdays 3-6:30 during the Allen Farmers Market. Call Good Eats Diva to order a boardroom bakery box selection of fresh muffins, coffee cakes, tea breads, biscotti and/or scones.

Beginning in 2017, Diva will be offering brown bag lunches for corporate functions providing a fresh ingredient driven menu with many of them sourced from local farms and businesses. Fresh, distinctive, specialty items from our Italian influenced menu will change often to keep things lively and take advantage of the freshest ingredients available.

Check our Website for future announcements about small-group cooking classes being offered at the Diva kitchen in 2017!

Good Eats Diva opened October 2016. Located in Allen Neighborhood Center’s Allen Market Place facility.

Allen Neighborhood Center to receive $10,000 boost from Consumers Energy Foundation

Allen Neighborhood Center is excited to announce their award from the Consumers Energy Foundation in the amount of $10,000 which will support their Hunter Park GardenHouse’s urban growing initiatives. Since 1990, the Consumers Energy Foundation has touched countless lives and communities through its grants program, corporate giving and employee volunteer efforts. Allen Neighborhood Center is one of this year’s lucky grant recipients.

“The Consumers Energy Foundation is dedicated to planting the seeds for communities across Michigan to grow,” said Carolyn Bloodworth, secretary/treasurer of the Consumers Energy Foundation. “We are pleased to support Allen Neighborhood Center in its vital work to provide opportunities to Lansing residents.”

Since 2008, the Hunter Park GardenHouse, a project of Allen Neighborhood Center, has served as a site for innovative urban gardening/farming education. Inside their year-round greenhouse and on the acre of parkland surrounding it, high quality workshops on every aspect of small lot gardening draw Lansing neighbors and aspiring gardeners from throughout the region. A year-round Community Supported Agriculture Project (CSA) offers extraordinarily flexible payment options, including work-shares, SNAP and Double-Up Food Bucks, to low-moderate income neighbors interested in receiving a weekly box of “super-fresh and super-local, grown-in-the-neighborhood produce”.  Youth enroll in Take Root (6-10 years-olds) and Youth Service Corps (11-17 year-olds) for gardening, nutrition and fitness education. These young neighbors are drawn by compelling, age-appropriate skill-building projects such as creating an Edible Landscape in Hunter Park, constructing and distributing Garden-in-a-Box kits in the neighborhood, growing food used to create healthy snacks in our commercial kitchen to sell at their market stand at the Allen Farmers Market, and conducting a Fruit Tree Census on Lansing’s Eastside.

The Consumers Energy Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Consumers Energy, providing funds for education, community, civic and cultural development, social services, the environment, and emerging issues.
