CAFE & BAKERY!


ABOUT OUR BAKED GOODS…

We love food!  Especially food made with fresh, high-quality ingredients.  In our café/bakery, we strive to hand-make our products with fresh, natural ingredients, and organic raw cane sugar wherever possible.  We never use high fructose corn syrup, artificial ingredients, or preservatives and most everything is made in-house, from scratch.  Our way of baking is labour intensive and takes a good deal of time – but we believe it’s worth it!  That said, we approach our daily bakes carefully to avoid excessive end-of-day waste.  That means, come early for the best selection!  Some of our popular early morning favourites include handmade croissant, pain au chocolate, scones, muffins…

We also have some great breakfast and  lunch selections!  Breakfast selections include our Breakfast Platter (a hearty plate of cheesy scrambled eggs, peameal bacon, spicy fried potatoes and croissant), Belgian Waffles, and our “handy traveller,” the Breakfast Panini Wrap!   Throughout the winter, Craig is busy whipping up daily hot dishes for lunch like Chorizo Mac & Cheese, Lasagna, Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowls, Shepherd’s Pie, Chicken Tikka, and Rockin’ Morrocan Stew to name a few – as well as a scrumptious Soup of the Day.  And all year round the menu sports gourmet sandwiches and salads.  In 2016, we introduced  a new selection of fresh lunch items, including Panini’s, Smoothies, and exciting Summer Salad selections.  Be sure to check them out!  And remember, we “freshen” our menus regularly – there’s almost always something new being served!

 

FOR THE GLUTEN-CONSCIOUS…

Our customers have asked us to create gluten-conscious treats that everyone can enjoy.  So we’ve worked hard to develop beautiful and delicious items without the use of wheat as an ingredient.  While we do this  to accommodate those with sensitivities, it’s important to know that all of our baking and cooking occurs in a kitchen where wheat is used in our other traditional recipes.  While we do our level best to keep ingredients separate, cross-contamination is bound to occur.  If you suffer from a serious gluten-related sensitivity such as Celiac Disease, or are someone who, say, can’t share a toaster with someone who eats wheat bread, then you may want to steer clear!  Be sure to ask our staff what’s available.
