The GOODS from Coho
Vancouver, BC | East Vancouver’s Coho Coffee (1370 East Georgia Street) has launched a brand new spring/summer brunch menu fuelled by member ingredients made in its commissary kitchens. The hyperlocal menu includes a variety of planted-based toasts and sandwiches, as well as protein-packed bowls and salads – all available for delivery, take out, or patio dining.
“Our team and our member businesses are extremely talented, and we are excited to be able to show them love by weaving member ingredients into our brunch menu items, ” says Jennifer Chan, spokesperson and CMO at Coho Collective. “Some personal picks include The Veggie Burger, which was definitely a crowd favourite amongst the team during recipe testing, and our new plant-based Banh Mi. We can’t wait to have the community come check it all out.”
The new brunch menu, created by chef de cuisine Jay De La Rosa, includes vegetarian and vegan-friendly options, featuring ingredients from a number of Coho Commissary members such as: Tall Shadow Breads, Sriracha Revolver, Salty Cabbage, Van Koji Foods, True Nosh, and Kula Kitchen.
The cafe’s sweet and savoury signature, the Coho Toast ($10), has roasted garlic, burnt onions, goat cheese, mushrooms, arugula, and a drizzle of honey. The menu also features a classic avocado option, and guests can choose to top their toasts with a poached egg.
Other notable new menu items (from $10) include:
– The Veggie Burger, with a Sriracha Revolver beet tequila mayo, a housemade veggie patty, roma tomatoes, and pickles, all on a Tall Shadow Breads brioche bun.
