Advice: Counter service. No reservations.
It’s a community eatery in the heart of the Strathcona neighborhood that’s owned by Brett Turner and Dax Droski. Both are passionate on creating a place for people to enjoy fine eats throughout the day. I love the large open kitchen, the stainless steel serving trays, the brick lined walls and the windows that on look to bustling roadways.
I visited for lunch having the slightly spicy and delicious Chicken Banh Mi along with a very good Kale & Soba Salad filled with veggies. I also had the gluten free Raspberry Tart with almond which was the perfect after lunch treat, along with the Corn Flake Cookie and an Espresso Macchiato which is made with locally roasted Matchstick Coffee.
You’ll find a menu filled with sandwiches, salads and soups as well as a daily lunch feature which is announced each morning on Instagram. You will also find a full-line up coffee beverages along with desserts and snacks. Looking forward to many return visits to this spot in the heart of the community.
