Callista's Vulpine Cuisine

A restaurant in Nanthalion Province dedicated to providing the greatest culinary delights of traditional vulpine culture

Brought to you by Callista Kayami ("Callie") Volopa, Owner and Head Chef

[Last updated 3/6/17]

An OOC word on prices: These prices are what Callie charges for her food if someone asks her what the totals are. ICly, the restaurant is a for-profit business. OOCly, however, it's merely designed to create unique RP opportunities here in the game, and if someone doesn't ask how much they owe, Callie doesn't charge them.

The exception is with meals that are delivered. They must be paid for, and the delivery driver is entitled to a minimum 50% tip (which they can negotiate downwards at their discretion).


⦁ Min'taba rolls
Everything you love about our signature min'taba, in a brand-new form! We cook a sausage patty, scrambled eggs and cheddar cheese, and serve them inside a split potato roll! A great breakfast sandwich.

⦁ Breakfast platters
Bacon or sausage with eggs how you like them, toast, and hash browns.

⦁ Country-fried steak

⦁ Omelets

Deli Section

⦁ Build Your Own Deli Sandwich (3 mhl)

⦁ Iloben [Macaroni & cheese]
We use only the freshest cheddar cheese, and the highest-quality macaroni noodles from Verlosi'ka, to make the best iloben you've ever tasted. Complete with a secret ingredient! Excellent as an appetizer or as a meal in its own right.

⦁ Lingori'Naan
A specialty of the Lingorian Tribe. A baguette loaf cut diagonal two ways, and stuffed with butter mixed with seasonings (ground up celery and onion) and Lingorian keeza [Swiss cheese]. It's baked wrapped in foil until lightly crispy, and the cheese oozes everywhere! Just tear a chunk off by hand and bite into it!

Callie's own personal recipe. Each batch of cranberries is checked for any blemished berries before they come to your plate. Orange marmalade is stirred into it to thicken and sweeten it. Perfect for any occasion!

Desserts (Everything 2 mhl)

{"tin-JAH-koe hocks"}
A legendary delicacy from the vulpine village of Rinaya on the continent's eastern shore. This pie, made with chocolate, caramel, strawberries and a special, thin layer of Tianopo honey, causes the person eating it to have an orgasm within minutes of their first bite. Besides that, it's delicious!

The classic dessert, made with fresh (never-frozen) blueberries from Callie's privately-owned blueberry shrubs.
Seasonal offering.

Hot tea served with a teaspoon of an herb called yatava, which has an invigorating effect on vulpines, wolvens and similar races. The yatava rapidly dissolves in the near-boiling liquid and infuses the tea with its energy. It's then allowed to rest for a few minutes, both for maximum effect and to allow the tea to cool sufficiently to drink.
Available in Callie's "Darn Good", peppermint, ginger, jasmine, raspberry, peach, orange, lemon, and chai flavors.

⦁ Velina's Tea
Hot tea brewed and then cooled with three slices of lemon in it. Once cooled, honey is added. Tianopo honey available on request.

A mix of cream and Blood Mead, which is pink in color and tastes sweet and creamy. One of the signature drinks of vulpine culture.

⦁ Cayazi [Ambrosia martini]
A martini made with vodka, apricot schnapps, peach juice and light cream. It's a popular drink with which to say "cayazar" to a vulpine-- meaning "congratulations on your new tail"-- hence the name. But it's a delightful drink for any occasion, or just to treat yourself.

A traditional drink of the Earth Tribe, our mint julep is made from bourbon whiskey brewed in the southern reaches of the continent, and mint sprigs grown locally. We use only whiskey that's at least ten years old.

On January 16, 2017, Callista's Vulpine Cuisine moved to a new building. Here is a description of it.


Callista's Vulpine Cuisine is a two-story brick house (with a basement) just south of the park in the city of Nanthalion, on plot ITW. Its address is 110 South Meridian Street, and its entrance faces north, towards the park. It has a greenhouse, bathhouse, and a ten-horse stone barn outside.

First Floor

One enters CVC through a set of double doors that are 15 feet high. There's also a "fae door" to the right of the double doors, that stands two feet high and four feet up from the ground. Inside the building, there is seating for 15 at the bar counter, and about that many at tables on the first floor. In the center of the counter is a small table with four chairs around it. They look like doll furniture, but are actually designed for faes and other smallish species. There's a shot glass full of sugar cubes near the fae furniture, which is for common use by any fae, pixie, or anyone else who wishes to avail herself of it. As another concession to customers who don't have human-normal heights, every chair and stool has a series of rungs along one side of it to help people like halflings and dwarves climb onto them.

There is a small area between the dining room and the living room that is completely open, to be used for a dance floor. The living room area has a couch, coffee table, fireplace, and two bookshelves. An 18-inch tall statuette of The Lady stands on the mantle, flanked by two large candlesticks. In front of The Lady's statuette is a set of seven colored quartz vulpine figurines. Red fire tribe, Orange Earth tribe, Yellow wind, Green of the forest, Blue of the waters tribe, with a clear and indigo rounding out the last of the tribes with void and celestial. Each was performing a dance of there particular tribe the seven figures intertwined in there dance, the quartz semi-translucent so the light behind it would form a prism effect.

Against the wall are two doors, one leading to a bedroom for customers, and the other to a bathroom. Inside the bedroom is a queen-sized bed, an end table with a lantern on it, a circular table with two chairs around it, and a dresser. The end table contains several sex toys. The dresser contains a change of sheets and comforter. There's a window inside the bedroom, facing west, with blinds and curtains surrounding it.

The bathroom has a tub big enough to fit two people snugly.

Second Floor

The second floor has five employee bedrooms which are not available to the general public, and a second bathroom. A set of double doors leads outside to a small, intimate balcony seating area with a 12' tall roof and four square tables that seat two people each. From there, patrons can use the Message spell or a fairy-mail to send their orders down to the kitchen. The balcony overlooks the park, and can be reserved in advance for small parties or dates.

OOC Notes:

CVC delivery specialists make their living solely on tips, hence my admonition on the first post that if you're going to avail yourself of a CVC delivery specialist, please be sure to tip them a minimum of 50% of the total cost of the meal (or what the meal would cost at regular price, for those who are getting the meal at a discount or free).

In roleplays in which the delivery specialist is online but the owner is not, the delivery specialist will start out already on the way to the customer's home, with the owner having received the order through fairy-mail or message spell.

Our asssistant chefs are authorized to open CVC by themselves. Our apprentice chefs are not.

Two Simple Rules for Eating at CVC

Postby CallieO on Thu Mar 23, 2017 11:25 pm

Callista's Vulpine Cuisine is intended to be a very different roleplaying experience from The Lonely Inn. To wit, there are two simple rules for going to CVC. If you visit the restaurant, you are giving your OOC consent to following these terms and conditions:

1. No violence.
2. No rape.

Banquets and Date Night Packages

Postby CallieO on Fri Jun 09, 2017 3:21 am

Callista's Vulpine Cuisine is proud to announce that we cater banquets and also do date night packages!

400 mhl will get you a banquet in which at least eight of Callie's signature dishes are available. Callie will be there for at least three hours, and whatever food isn't consumed by the end of the banquet still belongs to the person who bought the banquet.

We ask that you give us at least two weeks' notice for a banquet date so that we can plan it properly.

CVC also now hosts Date Night Packages! For 100 mhl plus the cost of the food, you and a date can have a romantic dinner on the balcony after-hours, use of the customer bedroom downstairs for the night, and a casual breakfast on the first floor in the morning.

Date Night Packages that have been won as prizes include the cost of the food.
