Our Ingredients

Eggs:  Our brown eggs come via Sweda Farms, located in Blackstock, just east of Port Perry, and run by Marianne and Svante Lind. These cage-free eggs are not certified organic, but are fed GMO-free grains that are grown organically on nearby farms, even though all the farms haven’t gone through certification. Read about them here or meet the chickens yourself here.

Bacon & Sausage: After nearly 2 years of searching for a great, local, ethically-raised bacon supplier we’ve struck gold, thanks to the great new West-end butcher shop Custodio’s Meats and Eats on Roncesvalles. This double-smoked bacon comes from Perth Pork in Sebringville, ON from pastured Yorkshire pigs, on a farm that grows most of their own feed. As always, we finish our bacon with smoked black pepper and real Ontario maple syrup – we just got a lovely batch of dark amber syrup from Ian Roth in New Hamburg, ON (and have some extra bottles for sale too!).

Potatoes & Onions: Our spuds are being supplied by Henry Bakker of Field Sparrow Farms as part of a CSA program bringing local, organically grown vegetables and meats from the Amish and Mennonite farmers of the Kawartha region to Toronto

Bread: Our amazing homemade sourdough bread is made by Sara Lapel of Nice Buns Bakery, using organic Canadian flour.

Greens: A mix of organic baby lettuces (red romaine, green oak, red oak, green leaf, lolla rossa, red leaf, new red fire, little gem, tango, green romaine), organic baby greens (tat soi, spinach, red chard, green chard, red mustard, arugula, beet tops, mizuna), organic chicories (radicchio, frisée). Exact mix may vary. Imported.

Coffee: We use the fair-trade dark organic blend from Toronto’s iDeal coffee. It’s a rich chocolatey Nicaraguan Segovia, mixed with a crisp and clear Guatemalan Huehuetenago and the smooth long finish of a slightly lighter roasted Sumatran Gayoland. Well balanced and rich with a heavy body.

Dairy: Our milk, cream and butter (for toast, not necessarily for cooking/baking) are organic – either Organic Meadow, PC Organics or L’Ancetre, depending on availability.
