Get The Scoop: January ’19

Bring it on 2019, we’re ready for our biggest year yet… starting with some menu updates this January!

It’s hard to believe January is already here; a month to look forward to the year ahead, set new goals, and create new habits. Whatever yours may be, we want to continue to challenge you to add more plants into your diet and live #ThatPlantLife.

As we head into the new year, we’re taking a minute to reflect on why and how we live this lifestyle. We do it for the animals, for the planet, and for our health. We do it through the food that we eat, the connections we make, and the collaborations we form.

In 2019, we’re excited to share more of that with you and encourage you to take a moment to reflect for yourself: what does #ThatPlantLife mean to you? How can you stay true to and bring this into your every day, even more so, in 2019?

We’d like to think we can help, by making your experience easy, enjoyable, and delicious. To kick off 2019, we’re making a few changes of our own at Virtuous Pie. From launching Virtuous Hour and brunch in Toronto, to adding some new items to Happy Hour in Vancouver and Portland, to rolling out a whole new brunch menu across all markets, we’re here to make living #ThatPlantLife something to look forward to.

On Saturday, January 26th, we’re rolling out a whole new brunch menu and introducing it in Toronto!

Our primary goal with this rollout was to update some of the pizzas we’ve had on the menu since our brunch launch about a year ago,” says Jim Vesal, Director of Culinary. “We wanted to incorporate both new flavours and exciting new products, including Beyond Meat’s amazing new Hot Italian Sausage. We are also happy to report that thanks to guest feedback we took the opportunity bring back the house made chorizo patty for the Sunny Side breakfast sandwich.”
