Badge of Awesome Communities invites you to share your favourite things to see and do in cool destinations around the world. We caught up with the folks from The Pea Pod — one of our featured attractions from Bruce County, Ontario — to learn about what they have to offer.
What makes The Pea Pod awesome?
Pea Pod: Well, there are so many lovely things about the Pea Pod! We are a vegan restaurant and juice/smoothie bar in Bruce County. When people first started hearing about us we got mixed reactions. People called us crazy for wanting to open a vegan restaurant in our area and most others were thrilled with the idea of another place to eat.
We give our community a healthy choice/option with our expansive menu. With over 30 smoothies to choose from and a wide range of vegan breakfast and lunch options, which are all also gluten free and some raw, it’s hard not to find something you’ll love.
We’re also more then just a restaurant! We host many wonderful events in our space like meditations and mala making and have many guest speakers ranging from massage therapists to chiropractors and naturopathic doctors, etc. We also do quite a bit of catering for other local businesses and residents of the area for their parties/get togethers and since we do custom orders we’ve created quite a few wonderfully unique treats.
We strive for a friendly and casual atmosphere where everyone feels comfortable and welcome. We make sure our guests’ needs come first and have amazing staff who are an integral piece of the Pea Pod experience. We put our focus on the quality of our food and ensure it is the best that we can make it, along with the intentional love that we pour into every meal we create.
The Pea Pod was created to give our community more options and to bring awareness to a unique and different lifestyle. We truly love what we do and look forward to many more years in business.
