Quintessential Quinoa

Posted on: August 30, 2018

I always thought of a bakery as a place to go for birthday cakes, cupcakes, yummy pies and a sweet fix.  A hidden gem tucked away towards the west end of Cloverdale is The Hot Oven Bakery.  Once you enter you are taken by an array of baked goods and the smell of assorted fresh bread.  Now I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, but I do occasionally stop by for their delicious tarts.  One of their lovely employees happened to tell me about their new lunch menu that they recently launched.  Curious as to what they have to offer I decided to stop by for lunch and I’m glad I did.  From delicious meat pies to savoury croissants, I’m determined to try everything on their menu now.  Each meal comes with a cookie which lets me try out all their various kinds such as ice box, shortbread and jam sammies (my fav).  I’ve been trying to eat a little healthier and since each meal also includes a salad, it’s been giving me the satisfaction of incorporating nutritious food into my diet.  A must-try is the Quintessential Quinoa, 100 per cent vegan and 100 per cent Yum!  So next time you’re in Cloverdale, stop by The Hot Oven Bakery and explore their menu options.
