Boxwood Cafe Tops Canada’s Greenest Restaurant List

Boxwood Cafe Tops Canada’s Greenest Restaurant List

Boxwood Cafe is a rotisserie in Central Memorial Park in the Beltline district of Calgary. Serving local, seasonal and sustainable food ‒ from Spragg Farm porchetta and Bowden Farm chicken to the in-house bakery and on-site greens and herb garden ‒ they are committed to natural food, free from pesticides, fertilizers, hormones and antibiotics. Leading by example, the restaurant also filters their own water, uses compostable paper products, and composts all of their vegetable waste. In fact, they are piloting a project to move all of their own compost back into their garden.

So, it should be no wonder that the Boxwood Cafe recently topped the Canada’s Greenest Restaurant List for its commitment to sustainable purchasing, energy efficiency and near zero waste. The list is assembled each year by LEAF, a foodservice environmental certifier working to reduce the environmental impact of the industry. Here is how all that green and clean translates for patrons:

The lunch and dinner menu offer an assortment of fresh and tasty salads and starters, like the Kale & Pickled Peppers with Sylvan Star gouda, spiced pumpkin seeds and maple-dill dressing. We love that you can add rotisserie chicken, seared tuna, pakoras or chopped porchetta to any salad making them a complete meal on their own.

Mains include house favourites like the Three Sisters Succotash with organic chickpeas, butternut squash, corn tortilla crisps, cilantro yogurt and salsa verde, and the Roasted Cauliflower & Spinach Mac ‘n Cheese, also using Sylvan Star gouda.

Don’t forget that desserts are made in-house. Leave room for rhubard upside down cake, Fairwinds Farm chevre cheesecake, or take home a bag of house-made cookies and brownies for later. Even the coffee to wash it all down is locally roasted, direct trade, French pressed coffee by Phil & Sebastian Coffee. A rotisserie in the park.
