Nose to Tail – A New Feature

While we’ve always used local ingredients in all of our dishes, we think we’re ready to take it to the next level. We got in touch with the good folks at Blue Haven Farms and ordered ourselves an entire pig and today we’re happily introducing our Nose to Tail Feature.

Nose to Tail FB Timeline

What is Nose to Tail? In a nutshell it’s the concept of making food go further. We’re aiming to feed more people with one animal, using everything we can. This is a feature we aim to stick with and just this one pig, will run contribute to features over the next year.  Every part that can be cooked and made into something delicious will be.

Here’s a rough guide of how we plan to do this:

  • All cuts that can be sold immediately will dot our menu and be offered right away- pork loin, pork belly, ham hock & trotters among other pork based dishes.
  • We’ll aslo be making salami which will be available on our menu in two to three weeks.
  • Our culinary team will also be making prosciutto that will be ready in about a year from now.

If you’re interested in locally sourced products, and in the concept of food conservation, look no further, we’ve got you covered.

Big Changes! Menu + Music!

With the changing of the leaves, we’re rolling out a whole new style at 39 Carden Street.  We’ve changed our entire approach to our menu which will allow our kitchen to be more dynamic in creating awesome food around what is available locally.  Gone are our menus and in their place, we have an easy to update chalkboard! Have a look.  Our Brunch and Snack menus will continue to be available as they always have been, but dinner will be a constant carousel of amazing dishes that our kitchen will come up with daily.


As well, we had so much fun with the Guelph Jazz Festival, that we decided music should be part of our weekends. Starting this Sunday, September 29th, we’ll feature a DJ spinning chilled out tunes every other Sunday from 9pm to 12pm. Check out the Facebook event page here. The perfect way to end your weekend. As well, we’ll be bringing back other local musical acts for the alternating Saturday evening. October 5th will feature Dee Archer on October 5th! Check out our Facebook events for more info on each of these shows. We’ll be sure to blog about them as well.
