If you are looking for a hearty meal in the downtown core, or a catering service to provide food for your next event, Bread and Bowl is the perfect place for you. Located on 2 Murray Street, Bread and Bowl has aimed to provide quality, Canadian and Turkish inspired foods to your next event or lunch needs.

Upon entry, B&B has some modern touches with creative looking menus displayed on the walls. One section of the establishment was a cafe where you could get all kinds of espressos, cappuccinos and coffee – while another side of the restaurant has a pizzeria and pasta making station. Each of the chairs have been branded with B&B and the area itself was a nice, comfortable space.

The restaurant was a quiet sit serving a variety of pasta, sandwiches, and salads. It had been established 4 years ago in the city and has continued to serve a diverse group of people in both catering matters as well as lunch and breakfast.

I was honoured to have a taste of everything Bread and Bowl has to offer – and you can definitely see their ability to cater just with this one sitting! Bread and Bowl has many offerings such as house made salads, pizzas, soups, and energy balls from the cafe.

Each of the salads would be perfectly crafted with fresh vegetables and tomatoes. The salads can also be tossed with baked eggs and/or cheese to your liking. The salads that I have tried were tossed in a simple vinaigrette and tasted extremely fresh. Salads that you order at B&B can be custom made and you have a choice of different types of spring leaves such as romaine and mixed greens. In addition, you have a choice of 26 different toppings to customize your salad to your liking.

I was also offered a Spinach Soup which was piping hot and served well as an appetizer. This was paired with a bread called Boreq that was stuffed with cheese and spinach as well. I never thought that I would enjoy spinach as much as I did with this selection! You also have a choice to order the Boreq with a salad, if you want.

The pizzas consisted of a Pida Vegetarian Pizza, Turkish Pizza (which has Halal Turkey Sausage and Mozzarella), and Chicken Rustica. My favourite pizza from B&B for sure would be the Chicken Rustica – it consisted of a pesto sauce, BBQ sauce with grilled chicken and caramelized onions that added so strongly to the flavour, in the best way possible! The Turkish Pizza was also a fine choice, and was cut in a way that could serve a group of people (the same goes for the Pida Vegetarian Pizza).

The cafe selections at B&B are also a huge hit with the city folks. We have “In-The-House Baklaba” which is a rolled dessert of some sort with pistachio and baked to perfection. The first bites into this Turkish dessert was very sweet and caramelized which made it a delicious treat. They also have a selection of Marshmellow Rice Krispies at the front of the cafe which is a sure option for those who enjoy sweets.

Also in the cafe section of the restaurant, you can have a choice of No-Sugar Energy Balls, Energy Balls with Figs, Apricot, Apple, Walnut Molasses and CinnamonBrownies or Cappuccino. Of course there are a variety of options for hot beverages such as coffee, americanos, or lattes, but a cappuccino was what I craved most that day (and it was splendid). These are all great options for you to start your morning and B&B makes these selections fresh and ready to go for you.

Last but not least, I had a chance to indulge in Chicken Club Sandwiches and Turkish Bagels – which are both popular items on the menu at B&B. These selections are a sure choice for brunch or lunch – and serves to fill all your satiation needs. The Club Sandwich usually comes served with a tossed salad, and the Turkish Bagel would be wonderful with a cup of coffee. Whatever you may choose at B&B – you can be sure that your level of satisfaction will be high!
