“We source the finest ingredients for our creative menu, prepare our food using state of the art cooking techniques and perfectly poach our locally sourced, free-range eggs, to deliver a truly unique and delicious taste experience to our customers.
We also strive to create a work environment for management and employees that encourages excellence in the preparation and delivery of our food and to promote creative input from all members of our team. We reward our employees with competitive wages, a forty-hour work-week and a medical and dental benefits package to both lessen churn and to attract committed and capable talent.”
The newest location of Yolks opened at 1598 East Hastings at the end of November 2017. The bright, 1,800 sqft corner address in the newly constructed Boheme building is three blocks east of the original spot at Hastings and Woodland. It holds some sixty seats split between window stools, two floating bench banquettes and six booths. It will also boast a sidewalk patio once the weather turns.
The modern interior design is a new direction for the company, which began as a humble food truck concept. The new look is by local design house Campos Studios, with a brand/identity overhaul by Glasfurd & Walker.
Upon entering the East Hastings restaurant, nostrils are filled with the smells of bacon, hot coffee and Yolks’ signature lemon-truffle hashbrowns; there’s plenty of pop art on the walls (look out for stoner Chewbacca!); and the service is swift and upbeat.
The new location also boasts new menu changes and an expanded list of cocktails and beers, plus an elevated espresso game with some assistance (and beans) from the good folks at Agro Roasters close by on Clark Drive.
“We encourage people who haven’t enjoyed the Yolks experience to visit one of our locations to see and taste for themselves what all the buzz is about.”
