…the Kensington community has experienced gentrification and the decline of street people living in the area. In response, the shop is strategically thinking about how they can engage community while still addressing social injustice. “As the demographic in Kensington changes, what is our role in the community?” Derrick explained their constant reflection.“Kensington has gone through a lot of shifts, where it becomes different things for different communities,” he added. “I want them to care about street people,” Derrick said in regards to the new residents.

The House Adds Rustic Sourdough Bakery Items! 0


Introducing the latest of our additions! Pastries from Rustic Sourdough Bakery on 17th Ave! Rustic is a traditional Swiss/German bakery where bread is still hand-crafted the old-fashioned way. They use unbleached, untreated flours and certified organic grains. Their bread is made without fats or sugars. (of course, pastries have sugar!) They do not use any emulsifiers, bread improvers, or preservatives, because Rustic does not believe in baking with ingredients you can’t pronounce!

Here’s what we’ve got from Rustic right now:

Lemon Blueberry Muffins
Cranberry Walnut Muffins
Date Squares
Apple Strudel Pound Cake Slices
Poppy Seed Pound Cake Slices

And soon, all of our sandwiches/panini’s will be served on their wonderful baguette loafs! Stay tuned for that.

Enjoy the glorious pastries from Rustic Sourdough Bakery!!
