Emily Z kicks off the new November schedule by taking over the Wednesday night slot, featuring her brand of hearty vegan comfort food with a punk-rock kick.
Working with great organic produce from our CSA partners Fresh City Farms & Kawartha CSA, as well as our local farmers’ markets, Emily’s got tasty & creative food on the go every week, plus decadent vegan desserts that will blow your mind.
Our Wednesday-night dinners are also about exploring ways to build community through food, so supper is Pay What You Can after 7:30. Feeling flush and want and simply way to help someone out? Throw a little extra in th pot. Feeling the pinch but could use a hearty, healthy, home-cooked meal? C’mon down.

Add some crispy-chewy pan-fried salt’n’pepper TVP for $2
For dessert: Chocolate coconut cake $4
Pay What You Can after 7:30
