covid update 2020-03-24

Dear clients,

We are here for you. Continuing to make food, particularly food that comforts and brightens your day, is essential. To do so, we will be making some adjustments to our operations.

We want to limit unnecessary contact, and the first step is that we are moving to pre-orders only. Please use our order page to place your order (no more same day orders). Your choice of delivery or contact-less pickup (between 11h-13h).

We are truly grateful for the support we’ve been shown throughout this time. As we’ve outlined in earlier posts, we take your health seriously and are going the extra mile to sanitize every surface. Your attention to physical distancing is appreciated.

It brings us pleasure to provide something special in these uncertain times, so please don’t hesitate to let us know how you are doing and how you liked your treats!

Team Sophie

covid-19 update

Dearest friends,
We want to extend our well wishes to all our clients and neighbours at this moment. We appreciate our clients’ business and continued support during these precarious times. For the moment, we will keep our kitchen production and the boutique open as long as it is safe to do so.
However, in light of the recent developments following our last post, we’ve taken further actions to do our part in limiting social contact. Right now one of the best measures we can take collectively is practising social distancing. This means staying at home as much as possible, and keeping a distance from others while in public spaces. For the safety of our staff and community at this time we have chosen to limit our space to take out only for the next two weeks at least. Furthermore, in an effort to reduce cash handling we will only be accepting payments by card.
To make take-out easier, it is best to order ahead of time. This can be done simply by using our online ordering form here; or giving us a call at 514- 823-5865. We also offer delivery, and our menu is available for order through Foodora.
For your comfort and wellbeing, we are limiting our store to 3 clients at a time and we have hand sanitizer in the shop that we kindly ask you to use when visiting us.
Again, thank you for supporting small businesses! We want to encourage you to support other small businesses when and however possible – whether it’s by ordering take-out or just liking a post.
We will be updating and making adjustments as necessary, you can stay in the loop by checking back here, or our facebook and instagram.

Take care,
Team Sophie Sucrée

covid-19 and you and me

Hi friends,
We want to take a moment to update you all on the heightened measures Sophie Sucrée is taking to help avoid the spread of COVID-19. At this moment there are very real precautions we can take to lower our risk of exposure. We are taking these measures seriously and would like to talk about them – not to reinforce panic but to prioritize the health of our staff, clients, and community.
We are sanitizing and disinfecting all surfaces in our boutique including tables and chairs, frequently touched surfaces like door handles, light switches, cash counter, self-serve station, phones etc… more often throughout the day.
All staff are being re-trained on enhanced food handling health and safety measures. We are ensuring everyone is being reminded of and following proper hand washing and glove wearing, as well as taking extra precautions in the kitchen to make sure all surfaces, equipment, and dishes are washed and sanitized properly even more frequently than normally.

We are encouraging anyone who feels sick to stay home of course, both staff and clients. You can always call or email to cancel or postpone an order. You can also order with us through Foodora or request a delivery for your order. Our boutique is small, and during this time we would like to avoid large crowds, we encourage groups to keep this in mind when visiting us, and other indoor places.
We want to encourage everyone to stay informed and take care. We are sending love to all who are affected, and those that are especially vulnerable in this time.
The Sophie Sucrée Team

    all hail seitan (happy new year 2020)

    wow, what a year for vegans.

    from documentaries like the game changers on netflix, to the surprisingly sudden absolutely ubiquitous presence of beyond meat at eateries and markets small and large – there is a change happening: in canada, meat consumption is going down.

    vegetarians and vegans now account for nearly 10 per cent of Canada’s population – and we think that’s hot.

    “how do you get your protein?” a question forever fielded by various veggies, is becoming increasingly inconceivable – our vegan steaks are in the meat section, our vegan burgers are at mcdonalds. we are turning a corner.

    not to be a downer, there were 819 million animals are killed for food in canada in 2019. for perspective, we have only 15 million animals as companions.

    there is work to be done. if you eat meat, show a flex… flexitarian that is. already vegetarian? how about eating vegan a few more times a month? already vegan? how about encouraging those around you without judgement? make and serve delicious vegan food, slap them burgers on your neighbour’s grill, proselytize on the unholy power felt following seitan.

    ultimately we can be this guy. (don’t be this guy.)

    fall menu!
