IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK AT LOT LIKE...

FullSizeRender-15.jpeg

We had our friends from Esme Floral dress up our market for the holidays and ever since they did we've been humming "it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" and other holiday bangers. Between the garlands and the arrival of satsuma oranges, 'D' Dutchmen Dairy Eggnog, and Anto Yukon soaps, the market smells and feels like the holidays in the best way. Speaking of which, we have so many exciting new arrivals on our shelves that will make stocking stuffing, and all gift giving a pleasure this year. You can check them out HERE. Plus, we've just released our 4th Annual ODB Christmas Dinner menu HERE.  Have a great week!

A QUICK NIP/TUCK (TO OUR WEBSITE)

Screen Shot 2018-11-25 at 5.36.14 PM.png

We've had a little work done to our website. It's still home to all the important stuff like our cafe menu, grab-and-go dinner menu, and weekly news updates (so you'll still be the first to know when we drop a new menu item or host our favourite winemakers around our harvest table). Go take a look and let us know what you think. While you're cruising (and crushing on) our radiant new site, spend some time perusing our cafe menu. We've added a few new menu items including steak and eggs with chimichurri and an albacore tuna tostada. 

NOVEMBER NEWS

IMG_1295.jpg

We're past the middle of November and that means the ODB team has turned its mind to holiday traditions, including gift basket making and Christmas dinner planning. To get a jumpstart on your holiday to-do list, drop our market manager Tammy a note at tammy@ourdailybrett.com to chat custom gift baskets. Speaking of crossing things off your to-do list, our kitchen crew are putting the finishing touches on this year's grab-and-go holiday meal and plan to share the full menu by December 3. Lastly, we've got an updated cafe menu dropping tomorrow with some new items we think you are going to love.  Keep an eye out for it on social media @ourdailybrett.  Have a great week!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ALL THE VALENTINES BABIES

DSC01473.jpg

Before we talk about valentines day babies we need to tell you that ODB is closed today due to city constructionOur sister cafe NHBR is open from 9AM-4PM and has a banging snack menu waiting for you. Now that we've checked that practical update off our list, we can move onto more philosophical topics. Have you ever noticed that there are a lot of birthdays to celebrate in November? When you count the months backwards it's really not that surprising. We've been on a bit of a merchandise shopping spree lately and are stocked with loads of gift options for your favourite valentines day baby. Pop in to stock up on foraged teas, handmade soaps and fondu kits. It'll be good practice for the gift giving season which happens to be just around the corner.

ALL. DAY. CAFE. MENU.

DSC01642.jpg

This. Just. In. As of today we are running our cafe menu from 11AM-close. That means you can now order your favourite, made-to-order items from our cafe menu in the evenings. Falafel salad, post gym? Braised chicken and rice bowl after a long day at the office? Jerk chicken sandwiches for two for date night? You name it, you can do it. Door Dash orders will be accepted up until 30 minutes before closing, too.

GUT OGGAU SALON.png

SAVE THE DATE!  On November 9, our team from Salon Fine Catering & Eventsis teaming up with Juice Imports  and the wine makers from uber cool Gut Oggau for an evening of crazy delicious natural wines, small plates of food and all around good times.  The event will run from 7-9pm.  Food and wine can be ordered a la carte.  Tickets are not needed for this event but we do ask that you RSVP to events@saloncatering.com.  The event will be hosted at Our Daily Brett. 

INTRODUCING SALON

IMG_1046.JPG

Remember a few weeks ago when we shared a snap of our slick new catering van and promised to share some details about the new logo (Salon) soon? Last Wednesday, we threw a little 'do to celebrate the launch of our newest offering - Salon Fine Catering & Events. A Salon is a gathering under the roof of an inspiring host as well as the name of our new full service catering company. Since we opened our doors four years ago, Our Daily Brett has organically evolved into a market, grab-and-go foods business, and catering company. We love the excitement of having all our babies under one roof but also want to make sure each of them have the opportunity to continue evolving and growing in their own right. By branching off our catering into its own brand, we'll be able to explore a more polished, sophisticated events offering.  Follow us on instagram @saloncatering. Got it? Great. Still digesting? Check out the cheat sheet below.

MID-MONTH MUNCHIES

IMG_0943.JPG

We made it to mid-October relatively unscathed notwithstanding the cold temperatures and snow that the month started with. We've managed to stay relatively upbeat by keeping healthy stocks of canned sardines and garlic crostini on hand (and if we're being honest, a healthier selection of red wine to wash it down with - we strongly recommend Un Litro, ODB's current house). Speaking of munchies, this Wednesday recreational cannabis becomes legal in Canada. If you're thinking of trying weed for the *first time* you'll probably want to pop by the market and pick up some really good snacks to have on hand first. 

ALL THE THANKS

Image-1-1.png

Happy Thanksgiving, readers. We hope you had a lovely weekend filled with family, friends and lots to eat and that you've got lots to be thankful for this fall. We're thankful for so many things, including our dream team at ODB. Pictured above are the wonder crew that spent the last few days preparing 28 turkey dinners and 180 sides for everyone that ordered our grab-and-go turkey dinner. Here's to them! In other news, we're open from 9AM-4PM today. Get your last minute holiday Monday snacks and hostess gifts early!

FOUR YEARS OF ODB

ODB-turns-4-(lowres)-1.jpg

Yesterday was our market's fourth birthday. That's four years of breakfast sandwiches, catering parties, anchored coffee, grab-and-go dinners and so much more. Just because we're getting older, doesn't mean we're slowing down. We've got loads on the go in the coming months. Stay tuned for all the details. We also want to remind you that you've only got a few days to order our preorder Thanksgiving Dinner. The cut-off for ordering is this Wednesday at 4PM. The full menu is available HERE.

In other news, our hours have been updated for fall and we are open until 8PM on week nights and 6PM on weekends. Finally, we're shortening our hours a bit for the long weekend so that our team can enjoy some turkey time.

FALLING FOR IT

Screen+Shot+2018-09-17+at+5.55.40+AM.png

Fall has made a rather sudden, rather jarring entrance into our lives this year. Not too long ago, we were living our best summer lives and now we can't leave the house without mittens and a jacket. However, fall comes with some things to look forward to. For example, Thanksgiving will be here in no time. As always, we will be doing a pre-order, takeaway turkey dinner so you don't have to worry about anything on Thanksgiving Day other than what vino to knock back with your meal (let us know if you want to chat wine pairings). We will release the full pre-order menu next Monday. Orders must be submitted by end of day October 3rd for pick-up October 7th after 12PM.

Variety is the spice of life. That's why we launched a new menu recently with loads of fun new options. For us it's simple.

Happy Monday morning! We're not sure about you but we've already got this upcoming long weekend on our minds. Most importantly, we've started planning what snacks to pack for camping. We're leaning towards sardines with crostini, fatso peanut butter and rice cakes and loads of concord grapes. These assortments would work just as well for road trips or hibernating. Heads up that we've got reduced hours this weekend:

OUR NEW DAYTIME MENU DROPPED TODAY!

IMG_3005.jpg

Our new menu drops today and we couldn't be more excited about it!  We've added on some hearty breakfasts including French Toast with seasonal jam and labneh and our staff favourite, the Breakfast Tipico which includes fried eggs, cultured cabbage, fried banana, black beans, rice and white corn tortillas and was inspired by surf trips to Costa Rica.  The lunch menu now includes a house salad, a few new bowls and some salty market snacks that are great for afternoon meetings with a glass of vino or a cocktail.  Click HERE or on the image above to check it out.

SAME SEASON, NEW WHIP

nhbr-nights-rich-odb-van.JPG

We're pretty smitten with our smart new whip, which we've been loading with snacks for catering events all over town. If you live in the neighbourhood, you might remember our original van (RIP old friend). It had quite a life, surviving some dark times (she was hot wired, painted over and abandoned in a ditch in Bridgeland shortly after we opened) and enjoying some joyous times (transporting foods to various celebrations around town). One thing you may not recognize is one of the three logos painted on the van. Stay tuned for more details on "SALON" coming soon.
