After 26 years of serving up vegetarian-friendly eats at 1581 Grafton, Satisfaction Feast has packed up shop and headed north. The restaurant's been open at its new home, 3559 Robie (the former home of Alvin's Pizza, behind the Cousin's Restaurant parking lot) for about three weeks. Owner Sarita Earp found out a few years back the restaurant would have to move eventually, when a new landlord (with other, yet-to-be-announced plans for the building) purchased the Grafton space. "The writing was on the wall," says Earp. She's been keeping her eye out for a new home for the shop since then, and when she found the "open and spacious" Robie location, she knew her search was over. "I felt like that was the right one for us. I felt like it was a place that had heart," she says. The new space, which renovators have completely overhauled, is done up in happy-sounding colours like "touch of nectar" and "ginger peach," and now has a semi-open kitchen. "You walk in...and you can see the can talk to the cook if you want," says Earp. Coffee, tea and water are also now set up in a "semi-self-serve" area: "If it's busy, we want to be able to accommodate people," Earp says. The new Satisfaction Feast is offering catering and is also available for bookings. Another big change has also come with the move: The restaurant's now open from Tuesday to Friday 7:30am to 3:30pm, and on Saturday and Sunday from 8:30am to 4:30pm, which means the they've also cooked up a fancy new breakfast menu (complete with both gluten-free and vegan pancakes). So now, the early bird can get the worm,andsoy bacon. Check out for more.
