We love getting crafty, that's why we teamed up with Emma McCormick of Emma McCormick Creative to offer fun DIY workshops at Nourish.  In Emma's words, "our crafternoons give you the chance to learn a new skill in a fun and inviting studio space."  The Parlour is the perfect space to find inspiration and connect with friends while creating something beautiful.

Gather your girl (or guy) friends and let us know your preferred dates, we'll coordinate with Emma to bring in the necessary supplies and crafty expertise. This event pairs perfectly with our Mix & Mingle group menu & Happiest of Hours drink specials from 3 - 5pm. 


the perfect summer patio party

Our beloved little sister, Charlotte & the Quail also hosts private parties. Nestled amongst the ever changing backdrop of the Horticulture Centre of the Pacific, this hidden gem is the perfect getaway from the city. 

Enjoy afternoon tea or the full experience of  sweet or savoury family style brunch for groups of 10 - 30 people. 

During the cooler months we are happy to accommodate groups up to 15 people inside our cozy cafe.
