Acorn Cafe has something new & exciting happening on Tuesday’s!
We started asking on our Instagram page what folks were wanting to see on the menu, and it was from that feedback that we did some tweaking to the menu!
First our cafe manager Lily set out to find a way to jam pack some nourishment in a lunch item & voila!… may we present you our “Nourish Bowls”!!
These sustenance filled bowls will alternate weekly so be sure to try them all! We’ve already started with the first two (pictured) and all I can say is wow!! So yummy, so loaded with goodness and food fuel to help you get the most of your day!
In additional to the “Nourish Bowls” on Tuesdays, we are also making pizza buns! These are great for grab & go lunches, or an afternoon snack and can be eaten warm or cold. We are making our pizza buns using the newly stocked vegan pizza dough from Diana Cline of Diana’s Cucina , a 5 time International Canadian Pizza Award Winner! This Moosehead beer based dough is for sale and can be found in our freezer section. Adding to the deliciousness is DeLuca’s pizza sauce and topping it off with Vegan Fromagerie’s mozzarella! yummmmm!
Wednesdays have also become our baking day, so expect some drool worth scents when you walk in the door as savory scones, muffins and coffee cakes (all vegan of course) are being taken out of the oven!
We’re here for you so keep those comments, suggestions and feedback coming!
It’s December!!! (Cue bells ringing and Little Drummer Boy doing his thing!)
