Dear enthusiastic lovers of all things Goat,
I think I made a mistake. I raised the price of the Family Suppers to $25. I think it was too soon to do that. As case counts rise and the third wave looms, and we are all starting to hunker down again, I don’t want to make it harder for all of you to enjoy tasty, nourishing meals from Little Goat. We will be dropping the price down to $20 again, and we will keep the price there until we reopen for dine in customers. We still need your support, I am trying to keep the lights on, get ready for opening and pay my small, but hard working crew, so keep ordering suppers from us!
The weather looks like its going to be cold for a little while, so we are focusing on comfort food. Warm, stew-y braise-y things that feel like a big hug from an old friend. (I am sure you all are missing big hugs from old friends) We are also making big pots of soup for you to order. We chose to offer three of our favourite soups, Corn Chowder, Chicken Noodle and (my go-to) Kale, White bean and sausage. These will be available for $9 a Litre. You can call or email us to order, and they will be on Skip the Dishes and the Unuhub for online ordering.
We have started offering family suppers in reusable glass containers. Concerned about the number of single use take out containers we are using, we decided to try this experiment. We will offer all of your food for Family suppers in re-usable glass container with tight fitting lids. You will pay a $20 deposit which will be returned when you return the dishes. If you order regularly, we will exchange filled containers for last week’s used containers and you only need to pay the deposit the first time. As a Covid protocol, we ask that you return your containers washed and we will re-wash and sanitize them when they come back to us. If you are interested, just let us know when you are placing your order that you would like glass dishes. (We do not offer this on special menu days, such as Easter, as it just gets too hectic as it is!)
Starting April 23rd, we will be bringing back the BBQ box. In this box we provide all the side dishes and dessert for a fun BBQ, and give you the meat ready to grill. Check out this site in a couple weeks for the menus.
Even though it feels like we are going back into winter, spring is just around the corner. I promise. So we are adding a few spring items to our take out menu, starting this Thursday. Five new items will grace our menu, including a sweet and a savoury crepe. Stay tuned to our Instagram page this week to see the new additions. I am pretty excited about these tasty new dishes. We are also offering a weekly burger special, this week it is a spicy Lamb Burger with grilled feta, tomato and harissa aioli, and every Saturday it is Benny Saturday. You can see our menu on this website and call your order in to 204-254-4628, you can order through our online page (with unuHub) or you can go to skip the dishes or door dash.
We are also still doing the Grace Hospital lunches. We delivered 40 lunches to them this past Thursday and we will be delivering to them again this week. We have made it even easier to make a donation as we have added it as an option on our online ordering menu (Unuhub). $10 buys a sandwich, salad and dessert for a hard working frontline healthcare worker.
This week we start offering catering services to a new TV Shoot. We are also starting to book some small weddings (or elopements) for this summer. Just want to remind you all that we offer a full range of catering services; from small bagged lunches to fully catered, multi-course dinners. Looking for something more interesting? We can even do wine pairing evenings or cooking classes for your group. Cooking with your co-workers is a great team building event. Have an idea? We can help, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
So, as we head into the next few weeks, it’s going to be tough, but if we are all nice to each other, we will get through it okay. There is a light at the end of this tunnel, and we are looking forward to a fun summer of BBQ’s and patio visits!
Thank You for your continued support,
Danielle and Alex
