The HUB philosophy
We are a ocean-side Bistro, serving easy to share dishes in a relaxed atmosphere, all with a lovely view.
Our intention is to craft quality food enjoyed on beautiful ceramics in a well designed space. We have been very fortunate to connect with many dedicated local farmers and like-minded growers that have helped us to continue to expand our menu sustainably.
Inspired by the flavours of Italy, the South of France and the Middle East, we take fresh and high quality ingredients, combine talent and time, to create dishes that are both satisfyingly familiar and unique. All our dishes are house made and we cook with the seasons. Every day has a new special, depending on what Pender Island farmers bring us.
A word about takeout. We do flatbreads for takeout, but anything else is best enjoyed with us in house. We have stainless steel tiffins for purchase, but we respectfully refrain from providing boxes and such that ultimately end up in the landfill. Many of our guests bring their own reusable containers just in case they get excited and order too much :)
The Founding HUBsters are designers in one form or another. They love the design process of trying out ideas and getting them right through iteration. And they want to help others to do the same through HUB.
We see HUB as a platform for all of us to get together, collaborate, discuss, learn, make things happen and have fun doing so. Especially when it comes to local farmers.
And, we believe in a living wage for our team. We invest where it counts, in our talented team and quality ingredients.
We accept credit card and debit payments.
Creativity: make ideas happen
Collaboration: 1 +1 = 3
Sustainability: future focus, living wages
