Beach yums: Kooks Canteen

The Rose & Rooster's owners take over Lawrencetown Beach's canteen


  • via

Long days at Lawrencetown Beach just got even better, Rose & Rooster Bakery (6502 Highway 207, Grand Desert) is taking over the long abandoned greasy canteen space and opening a spin-off, Kooks Canteen.

“The hot dog machine and deep fryers are still there, but we won't be using those,” laughs Sarah Zollinger. She says homemade granola bars, muffins, cookies and sandwiches and some frozen treats will be among the healthy snacks available, along with Sissiboo espresso that Rose & Rooster is known for pouring. Plus water, of course, to help stave off beach brain AKA dehydration. “Providing good customer service is really important to us,” she says. “And the beach will hopefully be an extension of that.”

Barring red tape, Kooks will be open within the next couple of weeks. Keep an eye here for updates.


Red tape? I think not. We've gotten word that Kooks is officially open and feeding/hydrating/caffeinating Lawrencetown-goers. Happy long weekend! Let's hit the beach!
