A1 Gluten Free GAls

Belly of the Beast CRAFT KOMBUCHA

Since 2016, Belly of the Beast has crafted kombucha unlike any other. Fiercely DIY and unapologetic, Belly of the Beast is positioning their tangy fermented tea as an alternative to craft beer for the straight edge set. Their commitment to sourcing local, seasonal and foraged ingredients as much as possible (and fair trade and organic whenever it isn’t) has fuelled the creativity of each new brew, pushing this sparkling beverage into bold and intensely flavourful territories that will change what you think when you hear the word “kombucha.”

Products: Kombucha (fermented tea) by the biodegradable cup/glass stubby/refillable glass growler.

C'est Chaud

We are a small family owned and operated business. Our copper domed pizza oven reaches temperature of 900 degrees. Our dough and are sauces are made from scratch. Cooked in the ancient manner using Maple, Oak and Apple wood to fuel our oven. When burned, these woods produce an intense, consistent heat, while imparting a sumptuous aroma. The intense heat of burning woods allows us to retain the fresh and vibrant flavours of minimally stressed ingredients while still achieving a crispy crust that has the perfect amount of char and character. We can cook a pie in about ninety seconds because it’s hot… C’est Chaud. We use local produce on our pizza pies, Seasonality dictates our menu!

One Little Bakery, By Mickael Durand (AKA Mickael's Cafe Librairie, in Lindsay) is a taste of France right here in the Kawarthas. Mickaël grew up with 3 brothers in Chateaugiron, France, next to a boulangerie (bakery). He became interested in baking at a very young age. In 2005 Mickaël visited Quebec, and then returned to Canada the next year to work in a bakery and later ended up baking  at a summer camp in Haliburton where he met the love of his life, Jane. Mickaël’s decided to return to baking in 2015 and in 2016  after opening two bakeries in France with one of his brothers, he opened a small cafe bakery and French Book Store in Linday. Freshness is Mickael’s first priority. Everything is baked that day. Everything is made with a true passion for baking and a drive to excel!
