Have you ever found yourself in that sticky situation where you’re out drinking your non-fat, no foam latte with soy milk, one shot of ristretto, two pumps of vanilla, and four pumps of unicorn tears, and suddenly remember that you have to go grocery shopping?
Or sauntering down the aisles of your neighbourhood grocery store while wishing they had a full espresso bar with almond milk, cream, and water on tap? (Yes, these are actual things that happen to many people). Well, Dalina in Chinatown has got you covered.
Dalina is like the love child of a really cool coffee shop and a farmer’s market. This Italian inspired cafe, deli, and grocer, offers a variety of coffee drinks made using their signature blends, a fun and ever-changing menu of handcrafted pasta dishes, sandwiches, salads and soups made with fresh and local ingredients, and an impressive array of groceries with many organic and healthy options to choose from.
Try and keep your little foodie hearts from bursting with joy because that’s not all. Dalina also has food items from all your favourite local bakeries, cold-pressed juice bars, and stores.
So whether you’re in need of some leafy greens, a pint of Luna & Larry’s coconut bliss ice-cream, jam from Le Meadow’s Pantry, vegan brownies and peanut butter bars from Edible Flours, ginger beer from Dickie’s Ginger, a cathedral grove juice from Krokodile Pear, or their delicious Italiano sandwich, Dalina will be your ever-ready fairy store-mother.
Situated at the ground level of the BlueSky Chinatown apartments by Bosa Properties, Dalina is open daily from 7am to 9pm. 685 Main Street (corner East Georgia).
