WHO WE ARE
An award-winning industry leader with 25 years of hospitality and entertaining experience bringing inspiration and commitment to our clients, our community and to each other.
We opened our doors in 1991 with a business plan, two refrigerators, an oven & three dedicated individuals with a dream to bring exceptional food and service to homes, businesses, and special events throughout Canada’s capital region.
More than 25 years later we’re still doing what we love.
Our staff is a wonderful community of people with a common goal. Trust, collaboration and the freedom to be creative shape the cornerstone of our team. We’re committed to leading by example and getting to the heart of what matters- contributing to our community by supporting local producers and creating a progressive working environment for our team.
We are passionate and committed to mitigating our environmental impact. We continue to challenge ourselves (and our customers) to come up with solutions to allow us to be as eco friendly as possible! Here are some of the commitments we’ve made so far:
- We believe in reducing our usage of single use plastics – and every little bit helps! Like banning plastic straws at both our locations.
- We ensure proper recycling of products from both locations, as well as out on caterings.
- Promoting our jar and bottle recycle program (bring back your used glass jars or bottles from pates and vinaigrettes for a discount on your purchase!)
- We encourage you to participate in Bring Your Own Mug- bring in your reusables for coffee or tea – for a discount – and to help us cut back on waste!
We believe in respecting the ingredient – from start to finish – so we like to partner with institutions that have the same philosophy and commitment to food security.
Partnerships with both the Parkdale Food Centre and the Ottawa Mission allow us to do this through commitments to the donation of food, but also through supporting programs that invest in food security on a larger scale – like the Growing Futures Program or the Food Services Training Program at the Mission.
Our Eco Team is always looking for suggestions! Please don’t hesitate to reach out and share with us your eco solutions – we love hearing from you!
Based in the heart of Ottawa’s thriving Wellington West Village, our second floor functions as a beautiful gallery space for special events and meetings as well as a community gathering place. Ask us about how we can help you realize your creative vision in this space.
