NEW SUMMER 2019 MENU
Summer is coming, and so is our new menu!
As it heats up, we naturally crave lighter and more refreshing flavours. With this in mind, our culinary team has designed a new summer menu to satisfy those cravings – coming Wednesday, June 26th!
“Summer is always exciting as it means seasonal change, and a change in what is fresh and available,” says Jim Vesal, Director of Culinary. “This year we are headlining one of our biggest menu rollouts by launching three new pizzas, a new and updated Margherita and the return of a classic.
“Our Street Corn pizza is a smoky and fresh combination of charred corn, fresh lime and cilantro, while our spicy Sausage and Pepper pizza, brings together savory house made Italian sausage and our signature hot honey,” says Jim. “We went eastwards with our Saffron Rose Water ice cream, combining the floral flavours with pistachios for a great treat on hot summer days.”
You asked, we listened.
If you’ve been with us since last year, you may remember the popular Pesto CBR pizza. We were sad to remove it last fall due to sourcing issues, but we are stoked to announce – it’s BACK, BABY! Now made with Tofurkey chicken, the Pesto CBR will be making its comeback in Vancouver and being introduced in Portland and Toronto.

ICE CREAM FLAVOURS
SAFFRON Rose Water
A plant-based take on the Persian ‘Bastani sannoti,’ saffron lends this ice cream its vibrant yellow hue. With a creamy coconut and cashew base, pistachios folded throughout, and a subtle hint of rose water, this one’s as flavourful as it is colourful.
Salted Caramel + Chocolate Pretzel
A vanilla base swirled with salted caramel and chunks of pretzels and dark chocolate, it’s sweet, salty, crunchy, and creamy.
No nuts, no problem! Inspired by the refreshing Thai iced drink, our Thai Tea ice cream has a coconut milk base and is completely nut free.
Simple, classic, and requested by many – our creamy and decadent chocolate ice cream is made from a coconut and cashew base.
To make room for these new menu items, we’re also saying goodbye to a few. Click here to see what’s coming off the menu after Tuesday, June 25th, and come get your fix before it’s gone!

From day one, we decided that we would take a hand-crafted approach to our menu. We are proud to say that we craft much of what we serve in-house, including our exclusive nut cheeses, three-day dough, and creamy plant-based ice cream.
We are invested in building relationships with local growers and suppliers, establishing partnerships with local craft beer brewers, kombucha and wine producers, and the purveyors of key ingredients featured on our menu. Whether you need a quick bite for lunch or are looking to linger over dinner, we want you to eat well and feel good about what you eat.
