Dear Supportive fans of the Little Goat,
We need your help.
It’s been 21 weeks since we closed our doors and you have all managed to keep the goat afloat. You supported us while we offered delivery and take out. You supported our Grace Hospital initiative. You came out in droves for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Cinco de Mayo. You have been enjoying our BBQ Boxes and our Mise en Place offerings and you have kept us going through these hard times. Now that we are open and we have our patio set up you might think we have survived this event. But things are still hard and maybe getting harder. Reopening was expensive, building a patio was expensive, keeping the kitchen stocked and the wine fridge full is expensive. With the doors open and with the patio we have been lucky to be able to bring back some of our well-loved staff but we need to be able to pay them for their hard work. At the beginning of Covid, everyone was pretty understanding about bill payments, there was a lot of goodwill and compassion. But now people like Hydro, Bell and the Water Department are rightly starting to look for their money. Restaurants always do best when they are operating as close to full capacity as possible. With social distancing we are only operating at %50 capacity indoors, and even with the patio we don’t reach %100. We want to open for longer hours but we can’t really justify it until we are at peak occupancy. So, We are asking for your help once again. Please come out and enjoy our breakfast and lunch menus. Come enjoy our patio, bring some friends and enjoy Sangria and snacks on a thursday night. If you are not comfortable eating out, please order take out or one of our Family Suppers. Treat your family or friends to a BBQ Box or a selection of treats from our Larder. Or you can help us with cash flow by buying gift certificates. These are available in any denomination. For the Month of August, if you buy $100 worth of Gift Certificates, we will give you a $10 GC to treat yourself. I sincerely want to thank you for all your love and support over the past 21 weeks, but unfortunately, I need to ask you for more help. Keep the love flowing and help keep the goat afloat.
This week, the dining room will be open from 9 to 2 tuesday to saturday. We are offering breakfast and lunch, some might call it brunch. Some of the highlights on our menu are the triple decker turkey club with house made ham, thick cut bacon and our house made sour dough. We are also featuring a beautiful open faced sandwich featuring summer squash and greens from our Arlene, our local market gardener. For Breakfast we have a tasty french toast with blueberries and lemon curd and on the savoury side we have fried chicken eggs benedict. If you are in a hurry, we have sandwiches, wraps and salads that are ready to “Grab & Go” at any time in our Larder.
Our Patio is open the same hours as our dining room with the addition of Thursday and Friday evenings. Perfect for those who love to linger over a charcuterie board, moules et frites or something from our tasty “snack” menu. This week we are starting a Sangria Happy Hour. From 4 to 6, Thursday and Friday we will be offering a selection of Sangria’s for ½ price. On the long weekend my children and their best friends, many of whom work for us at Little Goat, were part of an outdoors Sangria contest. The winners, Brenna and Zlata, are the two people you have been talking to all summer to order family suppers and other things. To honour their win, we will be featuring their Sangria. Some come down to the patio to enjoy their Raspberry Dragon Ball Sangria!
We are now on Skip the Dishes, so for those of you who preferring skipping to dashing you can use that app now to get our food delivered. If you can pick up your food, feel free to just call us with an order. You can pay over the phone or when you pick up. (Fun fact, if you call us directly, we don’t have to give a chunk of our sales to Skip or Door Dash, so that helps.) We also have a menu of “Grab & Go” salads and sandwiches. This is especially good for those of you who are in a bit of a hurry. You can call to order these, order them on the larder site (https://little-goats-larder.square.site) or just drop in to pick them up. They are always ready for you. So many ways to get our food, hope it’s not too confusing!
To reopen, there have been changes to ensure the safety of you and our staff. Please be patient as we implement these measures and be kind to our staff as they adjust to them. Guests not following procedures may be asked to leave. When waiting at the front for your table, please keep social distancing in mind. Wait outside if the weather is nice. You can also give our servers your cell# and they can text you when your table is ready.
We love to cater! We are booking up some dates. We have been asked to do multi-course dinners, casual summer weddings and cooking classes. If you have an idea, give us a shout, we’d be happy to create an event for you. We can do anything from breakfasts and lunches for your office meetings to full service weddings. We like to customize menus so that we can provide you with exactly the event you are looking for. Let us know what you need, and we can design a custom menu for your event. If you would like to receive a copy of the catering package, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also do custom cakes and other baked treats.
We continue our “donate a lunch” program. We have been bringing lunches to the Grace Hospital, and we want to focus on front line workers in social services and mental health. We are seeking support so that we can bring lunches to Ikwe-Widdjiitiwin, Salvation Army – Booth Centre, Main Street Project and 1JustCity as well as other front line mental health workers. Thank you for your continued support with this. For a $10 donation, we provide one meal to frontline workers. You can call us or email email@example.com to make a donation.
This week our “Mise en Place” menu will be a traditional dish from Southern France called Salade Nicoise. This dish is a Salade Composée featuring a variety of beautiful summer produce like our new potatoes, green beans and local tomatoes. We will be featuring a delicious seared tuna to complete this salad. This salad is so complex, we are including a map to go with the instructions. “Mise en Place” is for all of you who love to cook and for those who want to learn to cook, but don’t have time to do all the prep or don’t want to venture out to get all the groceries. Check out our website for details on how this works. Look under the “Family Suppers” tag.
Thank you again for your continued and enthusiastic support. We need your help now more than ever. While you are all helping us, we hope we are helping you to feed yourselves and your families with tasty nutritious meals. If there is anything else you would like us to provide, please let me know. Take care of yourselves, take care of each other, stay home and stay safe. Mind, be kind.
With lots of love,
Alex and Danielle
This week we want to support frontline
social services and mental health workers.
