Cuisine: Contemporary

CAVU: An acronym used in aviation circles meaning “Ceiling and Visibility Unlimited.” Commonly used by pilots as slang to describe anything that is desirable or sought after.

From the moment you walk in you’re greeted by our always smiling hostesses, to the minute you sink into the seats for a chat with our friendly servers and bartenders, you feel yourself starting to…chill out…unwind. Whether it’s a burger dripping with wine roasted onions and applewood smoked cheddar, or our tender charred skin wild salmon…we offer the best of the West…with a twist. Believe it or not, cooking was something our Executive Chef Alex was always drawn to; more by an unseeable force than a guidance counselor or career aptitude test (though he did take one and it said he’d be an excellent basket weaver). In fact, get him chatting and Alex can pinpoint inspirational experiences, moments and people that drew him to where he is now.

Papparoti

Cuisine: Café

PappaRoti – the buttery, coffee-caramel coated “father of all buns” that first took Malaysia by storm in 2003 and has since opened over 400 café locations worldwide – and is now developing throughout Canada.

Our coffee buns are freshly baked every 20 minutes in our stores, which attract people of all nationalities and age groups. Light enough to pass off as a snack rather than a meal, these delicious coffee-caramel buns are soft and fluffy, with a crispy top layering of coffee caramel, served alone or in combination with our various signature hot and cold beverages.

In addition to the coffee buns Papparoti is also proud to pronounce its new product offering the Pappa Rollie a soft and flaky croissant-like texture pastry with Kaya (young coconut filling jam) inside – this item is a sure win amongst all our customers!
