It's a life-changing vegan breakfast treat that will make every chickie happy🐣❤️ 🎟Don't have tix yet? There's still time to register! And, we totally recommend it (and not JUST for this pita😉).

Have we mentioned how much we L💚VE having babies and kids dine with us?!! 👶🏻👧🏾🧒🏽👦🏼 ... we love it so much that sometimes the owners/ staff even come over to help entertain the little ones so you can have a moment to eat using two hands😉 🙌🏼

We’ve teamed up with our good friends at @alepheatery to bring #ATasteOfCoexistence 🕊❤️ to the @universityofbc campus. 🍽 Every Wednesday from 12-1:30pm we’ll be alternating catering gigs with our pals Aleph & offering up $8 buffet lunches at @hillel.bc for anyone who’s hungry... and really digs hummus 😉 Read our collective statement below: In today’s world, it is crucial for us to communicate openly with one another. It is through sharing our boundaries rather than holding on to grudges, leaning into love rather than sticking to fear and being  vulnerable that gives us the opportunity to connect. We believe all of this is important to break the barriers that have been erected for centuries. There are injustices and political issues that are complex and we admit that they are bigger than us. However, we hope that by coming together today and sharing these meals, we are setting the stage for better  communication: addressing our inherited grievances, recognizing one another’s pain, acknowledging our histories and shifting the power balance. We are Haitham, Itamar and Rotem, chefs of Palestinian and Israeli descent. We believe in peace, love, equality, equity and justice for the people of today and the children of tomorrow. This is what brings us together and this is true coexistence.


FYI: We’re closing the restaurant at 5pm TODAY (Jan 7th) to celebrate the awesome Chickpeople who worked hard to feed ya’ll during the holidaze 🥰🍻 . . Also— while we have your attention & most of ya’ll are back from your winter adventures...please note that THE TRUCK is back on the streets 🥳 M-F from 11-3 @ 884 W Cordova 🚚🥙🥙🥙
