The countdown has begun! There's only one week left till our second Saks Food Hall opens at CF Toronto Eaton Centre (Nov 10) and two weeks till our Avenue Road store re-opens (Nov 18). It's a very exciting time for everyone; you can feel the excitement buzzing throughout the office and the stores as we prepare for our grand openings. You have to join us opening day and the following weekends - there'll be plenty of food to sample plus a little elf told me Santa might make an early appearance.
What to expect at Saks Food Hall, CF Toronto Eaton Centre
The first is our vegetable butcher. We know how busy life can get between work and family responsibilities. It's why we've brought in a Vegetable Butcher to help make things easy. While you browse our selection of steaks to pan-fry, our vegetable butcher will peel and dice your veggies for the perfect family dinner.
Start your morning with a yogurt parfait done your way. Dress up a variety of yogurts from Kefir to Greek, with an assortment of nuts, fruit and other delicious toppings. It’s the perfect morning treat that's also healthy for you.
If you're a lover of everything Italian and Pizza, grab a slice from BENE. Already serving fresh slices of Roman-style pizza at our Oakville location, this in-house pizzeria makes some of the best tasting pizza. Using flour from Italy's famous 5 Stagione mill, San Marzano tomatoes and the finest fior di latte cheese we make the classic Margherita or the new favourite NonnaDina, named after my mother, with spicy soppressata, cacciatore and pecorino - a true testament to her personality.
To finish it off we'll launch an exclusive and new concept to Toronto, Daits. Bringing the finest dates direct from the Arabian Peninsula with a variety of gourmet toppings. Make sure to try the chopped salad bar where you can build a salad to your liking with fresh greens, vegetables, fruits and nuts.
Our Avenue store will reopen with a set of new and improved features to welcome you back to your neighbourhood store. Sample a selection of fresh cold-pressed juices from the GreenHouse Juice Co. Shop - in - shop or pastries from the re-designed Pusateri's Café plus a full-service Italian restaurant on the upper level.
Both locations open at 9 am following a ribbon cutting taking place at 9 am. To reacquaint yourselves with Avenue Road and introduce you to the Saks Food Hall at CF Toronto Eaton Centre, you'll explore the store with a tasting Food Passport. Keep track of your tasting with that Passport because once you've tried every stop, it becomes a 10% discount card on your next purchase in store.
See you there!
