June - dine outdoors with dad!

Pick up your BBQ and picnic particulars from us. Choose from these tasty choices:
  • Fresh breads and buns - including our big buns to stuff with anything that suits your fancy, including  hamburgers and hot dogs.
  • Adventurous salads - black bean and quinoa, classic bean, or wild rice citrus.
  • Gourmet salsas - hot, medium, or mild.
  • Crunchy pickles - including classic dill with garlic, and bread-and-butter style.
  • Creative spreads - including hummus made with sweet potato, our lentil dip, and pesto chèvre.
  • Local lettuce - straight from the garden.
  • Fresh from the farm produce - watch our counters as our selection of fresh veggies changes through the season.
  • Treats and sweets - "What's for dessert?" Try our yummy cookies, squares, fruit loaves, cakes, and pies.
  • Queen Elizabeth cake - a buttery cake rich with dates and walnuts, finished with a toasted coconut topping. Our customers go wild for this one! First introduced to the public as a Commonwealth tribute to the 1953 coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, her majesty requested that this recipe be shared far and wide. Sure to become a favourite of  the newest royal, Archie!
