Yesterday I took my mum out to lunch! We stopped in at Heartwood Bakery and Cafe, a cute little spot at 6250 Quinpool Road. Now open 10-10 seven days a week! It was taken over this year by new owners and the entire place has a fresh new look and a yummy revamped menu!!! (now licensed too)
Cosy and welcoming, Heartwood serves up fresh organic, local (as much as possible) vegetarian food. They also sell their delicious bread (wheat free varieties too) baked daily in their wee kitchen AND cookies and sweets.
I had a hard time choosing what to order for my lunch because everything sounded so good and refreshingly for me, there were a TON of choices for this new Vegan. Every day they also have different meal specials, one of which is their “wild card”. Yummy creations that the chef whips up daily depending on what is fresh, tasty and seasonal in the kitchen! Gluten free options available too.
I finally decided on a lentil roasted squash burger with a spicy cashew mayo served on their fresh foccacia bread.YUM! Steamed greens on the side too…..BONUS!
Mum had a tomato avocado sandwich with some pesto on top!
The walls are covered with amazing metal creations by Joel Sullivan, so it is also a place to come and enjoy the art as well as the food…… It was busy when we were there, a good sign on a Monday:)
I was really full after my meal but saw this……..and wanted to have a closer look…….
Whoa! AND cookies of all kinds too! Heaven. Means I have to come back
My mum loved her meal too and said she plans on making this healthy place one of her regular hangouts:)
Yes, I would agree. Pop by for a visit! This restaurant has been given new life!
We finished off with a pot of tea…….ah…..
