Sign on the door says 'closed today', other sign says a cheese shop is going in soon, so... so much for that.

Dammit.

Tomato braised beef short rib. Black olive, fennel, caper and peppers served on rigatoni and parmesan.

Was absolutely amazing!

Farm BoyMay 1
Big fan of the downtown Farm Boy. Good pizza made fast on a thin crust. The pepperoni is a thick small-diameter disk, taste and texture of salami, the cheese is very tasty (more like a brick or cheddar than a mozza in flavour), as is the rich sauce. Nice soft crust with some crisp. $8.99 I think for 10" pepperoni, not sure how much for more toppings.

The burgers are delicious too, I wonder if they use medium fat ground beef, because it's nice and buttery, juicy. $7.99 for the combo which includes chips and cole slaw, no charge for cheese. $8.99 for a double. I'm thinking 1/4lb patties.

Super friendly staff, very clean store, uber-organized. Easy parking downstairs, you pay $1, but get refunded at the cash if you buy over $20 of goods.

Best apocalypse grocery experience so far.

We ordered a pizza from here last night and were very pleased with it. Generous toppings, and a good crust, fairly light.

Having had their business wiped out by Covid 19 Chef Jason and Tanya have pivoted and are now doing an upscale takeout / delivery service. They have a weekly menu for Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and you sign up for one by 4pm the previous day.

We are signed up for Saturday this week - can't wait! Visit this site for details

Hmmm looks like you’re right. His LinkedIn says he stopped working there August 2019. Which is odd because all the media leading up to Top Chef didn’t say “ex of Stofa” or “Stofa alumnus” etc. Well, that’s cleared up. Thanks.

I don't think the Top Chef guy is there anymore. The sous chef is a lady now

Maybe they just wanted you to know that the chicken was wood fired. (On their free Traeger grill😀)

Sourdough: “Promotional consideration provided by..........”

After watching Top Chef Canada I am less-inclined to dine at Stofa. That guy (their sous-chef I think) is not a good ambassador for the restaurant at all. But that menu looks good and the guy on TV is not in charge so may have to try out that menu sometime...

Sorry, just can help notice, "traeger grill chicken", why don't they advertise their stove top and oven manufacturers as well? Anyway sounds like a great meal!

So, after watching Top Chef Canada, and also wanting to support local business, we ordered this delightful Stofa on the Sofa meal, and by goodness we were glad we did.

The rolls were rich and buttery.

I am not usually a fan of wedge salad, but the dressing was amazing, and they served it with a delicious tapenade, and some great feta cheese.

The Tortilla soup was refreshing. It has big chunks of vegetables, and was incredibly well seasoned.

The chicken piece were large, well seasoned, and juicy. The Piri Piri sauce was so good, I am sure nando's is trying to steal it.

The Rice really really was a surprising star. We didn't taste teh apple as much, but the cinnamon gave it a nice heat, flavourful without being spicy.

The coleslaw was unfortunately not great. It was ok, but it was the one dish we all agreed we didn't care for.

The Tres Leche cake was our unaminous favourite of all the dishes. It was so moist, but yet somehow kept it's shape. It was sweet and complex, and I could eat an entire meal of just that.

All in all, we're gonna order again Next Sunday

ChilaquilesApr 26
I started going here when they moved to Beechwood, just before Xmas, and been getting take out from Chilaquiles since the lockdown started. It is the best Mexican food I’ve had since I left Chiapas almost 20 years ago, and there’s some not bad comida, here, no doubt. Friendly, cheap and fast.

Take out dinner from Les Fougères: ricotta cheese and olives with fresh buns, ham, grilled zucchini and cranberries, and carrot cake with cream cheese icing as dessert.


Was very happy with my kale salad (almond granola & parsley dressing) and my cheese pizza with basil, shaved ham and mushrooms take out the other night.

Crust can compete with the best of them! I will be back.

Their pizza kits are available from The Burrow Shop (burrowshop.buchipop.com/).

We got a ham dinner take-out meal on Sunday. There was maple glazed ham with an apple and Dijon mustard chutney, rosemary focaccia dressing, peas and snow peas with pancetta, scalloped sweet and regular potatoes and orange and honey glazed carrots. To start there was a salad with balsamic dressing and for dessert, tiramisu. Everything was really good and in my opinion, a bargain for $45.00. The meal was enough for two adults with ham leftovers.

Really, really good pizza! Fresh basil is appreciated. Give them a try!

They seem to be 10" pies. My wife and I split one (2 slices each) but I could easily have a third slice.

Are these individual pizzas? Or will one pizza feed two people? Their web site gives no indication of size.

Excellent pizza at a good price. I found the crust perfect in char, chew, moistness and airiness. It reminded me a lot of Libretto in Toronto. Much better than Fiazza, ingredients and execution.

They put toppings on generously, lots of basil leaves on the margarita. Both fior di latte and mozzarella cheeses I tried were great. They have two tomato sauces, both good but one of them is thicker and richer. I think you can only get the thin one on the margarita.

Margarita is $10, craft make your own up to 6 toppings is $14. I've been there 3 times, once for their Pi day, $3.14 pizzas, march 14. Pepperoni, mushrooms, chorizo, roasted garlic, sundried tomatoes, red peppers, the cheeses and sauces mentioned above, all top notch in taste and freshness.

Nice, clean store, friendly efficient staff, quick assembly line system.

I hope they survive this period and succeed when they open the downtown store as well. Excellent brand!
