Comfort Days continue this week at Canada Takeout!
Whether you enjoyed a warm soup inspired by our friends at Campbell’s, some hot and spicy Buffalo chicken wings smothered in your favourite restaurant’s Frank’s RedHot sauce or found something new after reading our first 10 Top Comfort Food Picks Across Canada for Takeout, we’re excited to see how you celebrate once again.
Thank you, as always, for supporting your local restaurants, Canada.
Now, here are 10 more picks to get you good and hungry for your #TakeoutDay ahead.
Hungry Heart Cafe (St. John’s, NL)
While Hungry Heart Cafe may seem like a regular destination full of nutritious, flavourful food, what you’ll find behind the counter is equally comforting. This particular cafe not only focuses on the dishes but also providing employment to vulnerable locals, training them in employment and using their revenue to continue offering training journeys.
Weekly menus are posted on their Facebook page, and can include amazing features like the Hearty Breakfast (Eggs, baked beans, roast potato, cinched breakfast sausage, bacon, moose pudding, toast), Vegetarian Wraps, Moose Burgers (not made with actual moose) and more.
