Our Little Shop & Eatery
COME IN, SHOP, SIT, EAT, DRINK, ENJOY
Inspired by my Italian roots, I created The Food Shop; a typical shop and eatery that you would find off the beaten path in any Italian town. A place where locals can find their culinary essentials for home use, or grab an espresso and quick bite, or a place to meet up with friends for drinks and a restaurant meal.
Nestled in Kensington Market, we quickly became known for our Panini sandwiches and Roman style pizza. Customers can choose from a list of sandwiches made with our freshly baked, signature Ciabina bun. Our Roman pizza is made using our homemade pinsa dough and customers choose their own toppings. So each pie is personalized, and some are very creative!
After our first year, the demand for more seating (and more alcohol) led us to transform our tavola calda (hot table) into a full service cocktail bar. Now we feature local craft beer on tap, wine and signature cocktails, along with an à la carte menu comprised of Italian inspired, eclectic fare.
At the Food Shop, you’ll also find a wonderful selection homemade and imported grocery products such as: gourmet olive oils and vinegars, readymade “take and bake” meals, bread and pastries, homemade pasta and sauces, pizza dough – the list goes on. You may even find nonna and nonno making some authentic dishes I grew up eating.
Hope to see you soon!
Eat, Drink, Enjoy.
Lora Spiga, Owner.
