The Garlic Clove Kitchen

A healthy, convenient dining spot in Huntingdon

By EMMA HANNAN

The Garlic Clove Grab-n-Go Kitchen proves that fast and convenient does not have to come at a cost to either our wallets or our waistlines. Huntingdon’s newest restaurant, which opened in May 2018, combines the convenience and affordability of fast food with the taste and nutritional quality of a home-cooked meal.

The Garlic Clove, located in downtown Huntingdon, is on a mission to see a change in the community and nutritional landscape in the borough. “The [staff] of Garlic Clove Kitchen are driven to see Huntingdon resurrect itself and become a thriving little town again.”, the Kitchen employees wrote on a Facebook post. By providing a grab-and-go option for healthy, fresh, and innovative food, the Garlic Clove staff hopes to eliminate any excuses Huntingdon residents have to not eat quality food.

Corby and Dawnne are excited for people to try the Garlic Clove Kitchen.

“There’s something for everyone, whether you’re a vegan or a meat-lover,” says chef Dawnne Rigsby. The Kitchen is one of the few restaurants in Huntingdon that consistently offers vegetarian and vegan options, which is exciting for several Huntingdon residents that are making changes to their diet. “It’s great to have some healthier options in Huntingdon,” writes Erica Lee in a Facebook review of the Kitchen. Her sentiment is echoed in the other reviews, all of which give the restaurant a five-star rating.

The reviews also note the friendliness of the team at Garlic Clove Kitchen, and I can attest that the enthusiasm for a healthy eating location in Huntingdon is evident. Lifelong Huntingdon resident Dawnne Rigsby serves as the head chef and uses her own health journey to inspire the menu at the Garlic Clove Kitchen. Corby Hess, a Juniata alum, is the Kitchen’s manager.

The Garlic Clove Kitchen currently has a full lunch menu that includes hearty salads and sandwiches. Retail snacks, fresh baked goods, and hot tea and coffee are also available to complete any meal. According to its website, the Kitchen will be offering a dinner menu shortly to complement the lunchtime offerings.
