WEEKEND WARRIORS: RAILTOWN CAFE ADDS SATURDAY SERVICE TO ITS DAILY CHEF-DRIVEN LINEUP STARTING THIS SPRING
Railtown to Host Customer Appreciation Day on April 2, Partial Proceeds From Half-Price Salads, Sandwiches Donated to Charity
Already well established as a popular weekday hotspot thanks to its unique brand of fresh, made-from-scratch comfort food, Railtown Cafe will expand its chef-driven lineup to include weekend service when it opens on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. beginning April 2.
To mark the launch of its new Saturday schedule, Railtown Cafe will host a special Customer Appreciation Day on April 2. Throughout the day, all of the cafe’s signature salads and sandwiches will be offered at half price, with partial proceeds donated to the Rare Disease Foundation — a non-profit organization that raises funds for children and families affected by rare and undiagnosed diseases — which Railtown will also be supporting through their participation in its annual Rare Finds Gala on April 23.
“Adding Saturday service was a natural next step as our business continues to grow and evolve, and for that we have our neighbours, friends and loyal customers to thank,” says Railtown Chef/Partner Dan Olson. “We’re excited to kick off our new weekend schedule by hosting a fun event that recognizes those who have helped us get to where we are today while also giving back to the community.”
Launched in 2012 in the heart of Vancouver’s historic Railtown District in the Downtown Eastside, Railtown Cafe’s team of classically trained chefs assemble the best local and organic ingredients daily for their made-to-order gourmet sandwiches, soups and pastries and offer a build-your-own salad bar unlike anywhere else in the city. The counter-service cafe, which allows customers to take advantage of an online ordering option and pick up menu items in person, also features house-made ice cream, locally roasted coffee, cold-pressed juices and a range of craft beer, wine and spirits.
