Olive and Ruby have now Expanded Their Food Program to Include Other coffee shops

Cafe owners without kitchens rejoice, Olive and Ruby have now expanded their food program to include other coffee shops.

Olive and Whoby?

For those living under a rock, Olive and Ruby is a killer little coffee shop in Kitsilano that has one of the best vegetarian and vegan brunch lineups in the city. They came 2nd in our 10 Best Brunches in Vancouver poll, as well as scoring high in the 10 Best Coffee Shops list.

They scored a 9/10 in my review for good reason, it’s an absolutely awesome coffee shop.

Fill my Shop with Food!

If you’re a shop owner with no kitchen, or a limited space to prepare food, you probably don’t need me to tell you how much of a pain in the arse it is to make sure your customers are well fed. In my experience, bulk options always seem to fall short on the quality front. Add to this the fact that people are more inclined than ever to buy vegetarian and vegan options for their brunch items.
You know what I mean, the three of you in the group are fine, but Sandra, well she’s a vegan and doesn’t want to eat another banana for breakfast whilst you eat bacon.

Everything they sell wholesale is made from scratch and in house.

The owner, Summer Dotinga, said, “We use primarily organic ingredients, flours sourced from locally (woman) owned Flourist and Anita’s.  Everything from the buns to sauce we put together ourselves.”

I’m a shop owner, what can I buy?

First things first, I should state that if you’re not a shop owner, you can still buy all this stuff in their shop.
