A fresh addition to Nada, a package-free grocery store in Vancouver, is coming. The shop announced Wednesday that they are launching an in-store zero-waste café.
Opening day is set for Monday, October 22, and the store and café hours will be 7 am to 8 pm daily--"perfect for all you early risers & morning grocery shoppers!" says the store.
Nada says they will continue to reveal specifics about the café over the next few days on their social channels, as they introduce new staff, new vendors, menu items, and more.
As a zero-waste café you can bring your own utensils, cups, and plates, or check out what they have available if you forget your travel mug for that vital to-go morning coffee. Nada will not have any single-use dishware or utensils in the café.
The menu is going to be an ongoing exercise in sustainability. "The goal of Nada's cafe is to close the loop of surplus food within our own store - turning those imperfect fruits and veggies into tasty treats, soups, and smoothies and keeping even more food out of the compost."
There will be seating inside the store for café customers, who are urged to use the space for connecting with friends and loved ones while snacking and shopping.
Nada opened its doors in Mount Pleasant in June of this year after a long time of fundraising, renovating, and trial pop-up shops around the city.
Nada is located at 675 East Broadway in Vancouver.
