Entry Description

Bannock was developed for Oliver & Bonacini Restaurants as part of the improved Food & Beverage program offered at The Bay. Located at the intersection of Queen and Bay, Bannock works well as a quick grab-and-go cafe complete with a full service dine-in restaurant. Bannock was conceived as “Canadian comfort food” so the interior aesthetic lent itself to materials that were native to Canada, presented in a modern forum. Reclaimed hemlock was salvaged from one of the Queen’s wharf’s in Lake Ontario at the bottom of York St. A white washed pine and concrete imprinted with wooden planks help to round out the space.
