After starting as a six-month trial in 2007, the Carrot is still operating as a not-for-profit cafe and community hub. Mary Ann Aquino (Culinary Arts '10) has been part of that vision since the beginning, building community through what she does best - incredible, delicious food.

“When I took Culinary Arts, my purpose was to make other people happy with what I do.” 

The cafe is run by volunteers and is a steadfast supporter of local arts and neighbourhood initiatives. Stop in for regular live music, direct trade coffee, micro-brewed sodas and a selection of pastries, sandwiches and more.
