Commune Cafe (Yaletown)
I recently took my good friend Naomi Devine (another force to be reckoned with in the world of sustainability in British Columbia) for lunch at Commune Cafe. Naomi was in town to give a guest lecture and therefore she had a little bit of time so we shared a meal. I had wanted to try Commune Cafe for a long while and I am glad I did.
Lunch at Commune Cafe is a bit more expensive than in other fast-food joints, but only marginally. The ingredients are organic, fresh and locally-sourced. Located at the corner of Nelson and Seymour, it’s close enough to my office at The Network Hub that I can walk there for lunch. Naomi and I were surprised not to see Commune Cafe totally full, but it probably was just a lucky fluke.
I ordered a Toulouse sausage with caramelized onion mustard picalili (shown in the photo below) which I thought wouldn’t fill me, but in fact it did ($9). I accompanied my picalili with a Cyoni orange juice (which at Commune Cafe goes for $3.25). Overall, lunch was fantastic, the company was great and I would strongly recommend Commune Cafe for a lunch meeting or date.
Disclosure: I paid for both my lunch and that of Naomi’s out of my own pocket. I just thought people should know about this little cafe. As usual, if you are concerned with any of my reviews, feel free to contact me. I retain editorial control of any review I post on my site.
