Hello! We’re Vanessa and Thomas Tilaka Kalb. Agnes restaurant & cheesery is a restaurant and cheese shop inspired by the timeless tradition of gathering with loved ones to share good food, good drinks, and excellent cheese. Agnes’s inspirations are influenced by classic american regional cooking that takes an honest and elevated approach towards comfort and sustainability, focusing on seasonal ingredients from local purveyors and cherished family recipes.
Executive chef Thomas Tilaka Kalb curates a menu that celebrates the nostalgia and warmth of grandma mary agnes’s kitchen for locals and visitors alike, while the cheesery showcases cut-to-order cheeses, an array of related provisions and takeaway wines that feature artisanal and local markers focused on sustainable, regenerative, biodynamic, organic and dry farming techniques by our head cheese Vanessa Tilaka Kalb.
Agnes is the first effort by chefs Vanessa and Thomas to present pasadena with a safe and intentional space that highlights talented makers, producers, artists, and hospitality professionals.
