Thank you for your continued patronage and patience while we’ve been constantly altering our hours and operations during these difficult times. We’ve been listening to our customers and it’s clear that there is a demand for take-home/delivery noodles and grocery items, so we are going to focus on that for the next while. Basically, we will be your general store.
Starting tomorrow, March 30, we will be open Monday through Saturday from 10am-6pm. We will continue to limit the number of people on the premises to comply with government directives, and we will continue to offer delivery to Port Williams, Wolfville, Canning, Centreville, New Minas, and Kentville.
Brandie is coming back this week (yay!) and Ross will continue cooking.
We are very grateful for your support and we are doing all that we can to be here to support you right back!
Exactly nine years ago today, we opened our little shop just up the road in Port Williams. We had no employees; it was just Ross, doing everything.
As of today, we have no employees again. We’ve gone from a staff of 20 right back to just Ross, doing everything. It has been heart-breaking to lay off our staff members over the last several days. They’ve been wonderful: understanding, kind, and optimistic. Situations like this tend to bring out people’s true colours, and it’s clear that our employees–sigh: former employees–are good people with the right stuff.
We’re trying to be optimistic too, and looking forward to the day when we start calling people back. Until then, you’ll find Ross keeping the shop open for as long as he can on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10am-2pm. If you aren’t able to come to him, e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org and he’ll try to come to you if he can.
Thank you to our caring and loyal customers who are supporting us and other local businesses as much as they can! It means the world to us.
In an effort to keep as many of our staff employed and as many of our customers fed as possible, we are now offering local delivery in addition to our expanded take-out and grocery offerings.
These two handsome fellas are going to be delivering (no contact) to your doorstep as of today! When they drop off your order, they will HONK or TEXT to let you know that your food has arrived.
For Port Williams and Wolfville: your order must be received by phone (902-697-3906) by 11am. Delivery will be between 11am-12:30pm in Port Williams and between 12:30-2pm for Wolfville.
For Canning, Centreville, New Minas, and Kentville: your order must be received by phone (902-697-3906) by 1pm. Delivery will be between 2-6pm.
There will be a $3 fee for all delivery orders. NO CASH. If you aren’t able to pay by credit over the phone or e-transfer, please let us know when you call and we will figure it out case by case. As Ross says, “We are all figuring this out by the seats of our pants” as a business and a community. We appreciate all the continued support!
So far, we are still open, but we have suspended dining room service and are increasing our take-away and grocery options.
During this time, we will at last be accepting take-out orders over the phone! Call the shop at 697-3906 and we will have your food ready for you when you get here.
We are also encouraging customers to shop from our fridge of take-home pasta and sauces. We will be adding new heat-and-serve options (lasagne!), and we are extending our ten-dollar Tuesday to every day.
Staff are diligently cleaning and disinfecting surfaces and objects, and we are all taking precautions to keep ourselves and our wonderful customers safe, healthy, and well-fed.
Our wildly popular Thursday burger nights resume this week! We’re kicking off the new season on Hallowe’en night with a 50s diner theme and a classic burger (homemade relish, ketchup, and mustard). Call the shop to book! 697-3906.
