A surprising number of our corporate clients have shared horror stories about bad sandwich experiences. In fact, bosses are literally banning bread from their boardroom lunches. Meanwhile, lunch is supposed to be the part of the office meeting you look forward to the most! On the contrary, picture soggy, stale, uninspired, and boring heaps of […]
Sometimes even a bad break can deliver life-changing good luck. That was the case for young Chris Canham when he broke his foot in the summer of 1985. With mobility limited, he took his first job at a restaurant in his native St. Catharine’s, Ont., and watched cooks ply their trade. When a few of […]
It’s been hard to find words these past couple years. However, it’s never hard to find inspiration. Here is one of my favorite poems, paying homage to the season. It’s been coupled with photos from our delicious Fall / Winter Seasonal menu. Hope you enjoy! TO AUTUMN BY JOHN KEATS Season of mists and mellow […]

There is a lot to look forward to – even if that means sacrificing wearing your pajamas past noon. It’s pretty safe to assume that we’re all going back […]
Zoom meeting after zoom meeting, feels a lot less like being in a social and collaborative office environment and more like a never-ending string of boardroom meetings. There are clearly some advantages to working at home. Perhaps you are saving on a lengthy commute, not to mention the expense. However, there are also a few […]
Let’s face it, stay at home orders are starting to drive us all a little “cray-cray”. Will it ever end?! It’s a bit like that famous movie called Groundhog Day, starring Bill Murray. Each day is a hauntingly similar version of the last and we’re all running out of patience and missing our freedom (a […]
