Portobello Road serves the Durham Region community with fresh healthy food made from local vegetables that happen to be vegan. Everything is made from scratch, they mill their own flour, smoke, cure, ferment and do some really amazing things with vegetables.

Portobello Road works closely with local farmers to source the very best seasonal ingredients. Menu changes frequently with produce availability.

What value did you receive from BACD?

We were able to purchase some new equipment that has increased revenue
