At the Flying Apron, the motto is 'We do Local!' The menu is seasonal and changes weekly (or more often!) to feature what is being harvested by their farmers and to account for their use of whole animals. The vast majority of their menu ingredients come from within 15 minutes of the restaurant, including sustainable fish, much of their organic produce, fresh organic fruit, and both lamb and pork raised on their partner farm, Ironwood Farm, just down the road.

Celebrating local begins with their beverage menu here at The Flying Apron. They have a carefully selected offering of locally produced beverages to pair with your meal, from local wines and beer to housemade sweet tea or fresh lemonade. The Flying Apron is proud to offer selections from organic fair trade coffee and natural juices.

While their appetizer offerings along with the main menu change each week to feature the freshest Nova Scotia's ingredients, you can find some standard menu items like the homemade beef burger, lentil, black bean, quinoa and vegetable vegan burger. There are also a fresh pasta, a house-cured and braised brisket sandwich, sustainable seafood chowder, and a seasonal salad bowl.

To complete your meal you will find a stunning selection of desserts all lovingly made in their kitchen. The dessert selections change almost daily but often include a strudel or fruit pie, gluten free chocolate cake or crème brûlée, and their one of a kind cream cheese pie. Be sure to save room for something sweet and that Just Us! Organic Fair Trade coffee or tea on your next visit.

The Flying Apron tries their very best to accommodate allergies and dietary restrictions for our guests and offer many gluten-free and vegetarian options.

Sustainable seafood

As a certified Ocean Wise Member (Vancouver Aquarium’s Sustainable Seafood Certification), The Flying Apron is proud to use only sustainable seafood. Why does sustainable seafood matter? Fish stocks around the world are decreasing. Overfishing and pollution are wreaking havoc on the ocean ecosystems. The way you cultivate or harvest seafood and the quantity of the fish stocks you are using is directly linked to the health and longevity of these oceans.

As a member of the Taste of Nova Scotia Chowder Trail, The Flying Apron proudly features a 100% sustainable seafood chowder on their menu.

Local and organic

The Flying Apron sources approximately 90% of their food ingredients locally, even in the winter! It’s not uncommon to see a farmer or two delivering fresh products to their front door during your visit. This strong partnerships and relationships with farmers, fishermen or fisherwomen, and producers allow them to have a hand in growing the local economy in the community and province, all while offering the freshest and best-tasting products to their customers.

Most of the partner farms are certified organic or practicing sustainable farming methods. By purchasing local and organic, The Flying Apron supports sustainable food production and land and water preservation in Nova Scotia.

Nova Scotia beer and wine

The wineries and breweries in Nova Scotia are producing great products and putting the province on the map for those seeking delicious, small batch beer and award-winning wine. The Flying Apron's food pairs beautifully with Nova Scotia beverages and they are proud to feature only local products on their beverage menu.
