We are excited to be part of Ecofest 2013 again this year. The festival runs September 27-29 at Heritage Park in Barrie, ON. We’ll be set up at the Market Cafe along with our friends at Rawlicious and Unity Cafe. It’s going to be a fun weekend!
This year we will be serving dinner for the Fashion Show on Friday night starting at 5pm. On the menu we have a Coconut Squash curried crepe with a Jicama Slaw. For dessert we’ve got Pumpkin Cheesecake and Apple Crumble. All our veggies & fruit will be locally sourced!
For Saturday and Sunday we have Avocado Wraps, Soy-Marinated Tofu Wraps, Moroccan Squash Soup, Grilled Mozzarella/Tomato/Basil Paninis and Apple Pie Crepes along with loads of great baked goods ranging from vegan & gluten-free to totally sinful.
See you there!!
This weekend we are proud to be launching our new coffee from a small micro roaster from Guelph, ON called Planet Bean.
And with this change will evolve our passion for coffee. The Planet Bean team will be sending in their barista for a full on training session at the Tulip. We’re really looking forward to this as we are in desperate need of help in the latte art department! We will also be hosting a coffee tasting event featuring our new line of coffee! Please stay tuned for dates on that!

About Planet Bean
Planet Bean began roasting coffee in downtown Guelph in 1997. From the beginning their focus was on certified fair trade and organic gourmet arabica coffee. They roast to order in small batches, therefore, they don’t warehouse any of our roasted coffee so it is always fresh roasted when shipped. And they are passionate about their work!
