BALZAC'S COFFEE

Balzac's values are infused with everything their customers experience in Balzac's caf├ęs. Artisanal, Sustainable, Local and Natural are the four cornerstones of their business practices. Each product is thoughtfully and diligently sourced!

STRODES BBQ

Since 1937 Strodes has been serving the city of Brantford with the highest quality meats and meat products. They carry a variety of select cuts of chicken, beef, poultry, lamb and other specialty meats. Best of all - their products are made fresh in store.

MASHPADDLE

Mash Paddle Brewing Co. started in a small kitchen where they brewed the first batches with love on a small rental apartment stove. They quickly outgrew the small stove setup and met a fellow brewer that shared the same interests and passion to brew on a larger system.
