How have you been impacted by Covid and do you have any Covid safety protocols?
Covid has impacted everyone, we are grateful our team has not lost any loved ones, and that is the most important thing. Ingredient and shipping prices have gone up and suppliers randomly run out of product, there are lengthy shipping delays and we cannot have as many people on staff so it everything takes longer to do!
We have always had incredible cleaning practices, but we have ramped everything up, with extra hand sanitising, all of our staff wears masks indoors, at curbside pick up. Our staff on hand is limited so that everyone can space out, and if anyone has any Covid symptoms, they stay home until they have an all clear from AHS. All of our staff is double vaxxed for your safety and our teams safety. We do ask that you wear a mask for curbside pick up.
What products are gluten free?
Do you cater?

Why aren't you in a store or coffeeshop near me?
Great question, why aren't we? The best way to have our products carried by your favourite place is to ask them to carry our products for you.
Do you sell wholesale?
Yes , we sell wholesale to businesses from yoga studios to restaurants.
Can you deliver to Canmore/Okotoks/Airdrie/My neighbourhood...
We have offered delivery, but not without challenges and unfortunately have had a few people scam us, and courier rates run at about $30 + per delivery, so we have chosen not to continue at this time. WE ARE HAPPY TO SEND YOUR ORDER TO YOU IN A PREPAID UBER. Email us for details.
Are you hiring?
Always! If you "get" what we are about, have an amzing work ethic and your own reliable transportation and are double vaxxed, send us a cover letter and a resume and lets chat!
How do I order online?
Easy! Just pick your favourite items, check out, pick the store you want to pick up at, or delivery, pick a date, and that;s pretty much it! Make sure to click 'more information; to get details about each pick up location, such as hours they are open.
I loved your cafe! Are you re-opening it or are you going to open a store front?
We loved our cafe and having the chance to see everyone happily enjoying our community space! Covid hit us hard, and while we kept it open as long as we could, lockdowns, restrictions and lack of government support during shut downs made it to difficult to operate safely, and were fiscally devastating.
We chose to close the cafe until the pandemic is under control, or we find the perfect investor that helps us develop a space that makes it safe for us to successfully operate a store front again.
How does Delivery work?
We are currently not offering delivery.
Pick everything you would like, click the delivery date you prefer from the options, and complete your order. We'll send a notification the day of pick up when we are on our way to drop your order off, just give us a couple hours to get to you, we may have a few other deliveries on the way or traffic may have us tied up. Feel free to tip your delivery person, as of us writing this, all of our delivery people are University students, so they will be very appreciative!
How many days notice do you need?
Our cut off date for weekend pick up is typically Wednesday at 8am.
Are you a chain?
Not at all. We are an independently owned, triple bottom line business that is local to Calgary, Alberta. We have been operating since 2012, making amazing gluten free.
This is a great idea. Can I invest?
Maybe. Contact us and we can chat.
Your bread is the best gluten free bread I have had, hands down. Are you a wizard?
Sadly, no, or we'd be having this conversation somewhere warmer with sand between our toes.
What's your problem with palm oil? I've heard its great for you, and it's in so many things.
We are, first and foremost, an Earth friendly company and using palm oil is not Earth friendly in any way..There are so many issues with palm oil, we recommend checking out doing your own personal research or checking out this link. Unfortunately there really is no such thing as sustainable palm oil, every palm plantation causes or has caused degradation of human rights, deforestation and environmental damage.

This FAQ is pretty lame. Who asks these questions?
Our FAQ is based on questions the world at large has posed to us. We'll be adding more soon!
