Anyone know about the BIG walnut on bloor?

does anyone know anything about the new shop/restaurant on north side of bloor just east of lansdowne with the BIG walnut on the facade? I believe it is just west of Calico.

I'm curious.

        The folks at Holy Oak mentioned that the owner is going to run a small farmers' market in the backyard during the summer months. It sounds like it's going to be amazing!

          looks like it is called the nuthouse
          has anyone been in to check it out?

            I did. They have a good selection of spices and other dried goods, beverages and dairy products, nut butters, vinegars, oils, etc. They also carried great bouquets of flowers. A welcomed addition to the neighbourhood.

              I've bought a few things from them too. I'm still fencesitting on whether I like the store or not. I like having a bulk food store nearby, but I find their selection a tad limited if you're not white and middle class.

              Also, those unfunctional glass containers with glass lids need to go.

        2. I checked it out and too and they have the good vegan stuff as well as nice honey and paprika and speciality flours.
