Special Notes:

  • Nut Allergies: No Thyme to Cook is NOT a nut-free facility. Any nuts that are on site are stored in enclosed containers. All pans, pots, bowls, etc are run through our dishwasher which reaches sanitizing temperatures during the cycle. For the birthday parties NONE of the recipes include nuts.

  • Other food allergies or dietary restrictions: We always try to accommodate children with other allergies like gluten, dairy, sesame, soy, etc. As long as you let our staff know when you register your child we always try to find a substitution for the student. 

  • Parents booking a birthday party should ask parents of the guest children about allergies BEFORE the party so no surprises come up during the party when a child lets the staff know he or she is allergic to an item being used. We can work around most allergies if we know in advance.

  • Parents are welcome to stay and watch. But we ask that just the children do all of the cooking. You’re always welcome to enjoy a drink from our beautiful first floor covered decking overlooking Solomons harbor.
