welcome to café evergreen

~  Passion for a healthy lifestyle  ~

Our personal philosophy is to be a leader in healthy foods and drinks that are fresh, great tasting and unique. We take things that people like and give them a healthier option while all the time maintaining quality and great taste… some examples – people love French fries, our healthy version is baked sweet potato fries (we do not even have a fryer at the café, which makes for a much more creative type of cooking – look at most restaurants menu’s and count the fried items).

Another example of our café making something healthy is our Kefir Mojito. We are the only one in the whole world who can make this drink! Our unique Water Kefir Grains had been exclusively grown and nurtured by us for over 10 years and give this probiotic drink a one of a kind flavour.

At cafe evergreen we use 2/3 less salt than most restaurants. By making our house made sauces, soups and dressings we can control the salt. Most canned and pre-made sauces contain salt as a cheap preservative in addition to chemicals and dyes added to keep things shelf stable. Our food at the café is more vibrant and colorful because it is FRESH! When you use fresh ingredients there is always a taste difference!

Enjoy! – Annette & Ted

"Locally Sourced & Organic Oriented"

We are constantly buying and helping local businesses and organic farmers, with locally sourced products.

Since we opened café evergreen, we have always respected where our food is sourced. Our goal is to nourish our community and our environment with a sustainable system, promote education about what we consume, serve the freshest food and drinks from local ingredients and encourage earth to table, using ingredients from local fields as the chef’s pantry.
