Team behind East Vancouver’s Osteria Savio Volpe & Pepino’s Spaghetti House open the doors of their third concept, La Tana – Italian for a fox’s den.
An old world-inspired establishment, Caffè La Tana is styled after the Italian alimentari: a small, neighbourhood gathering place serving pastries and simple meals; brewing strong, Italian-style espresso; and stocking locally sourced organic produce; fresh house made pasta; and the finest imported Italian meats, cheeses and dry goods.
In addition to groceries and coffee, central to the La Tana kitchen is the exposed Pasta Fresca table where fresh pastas — hand-cut everyday egg noodles, special seasonal stuffed pasta, and lesser known, harder-to-find shapes like trofie, tajarin, and orecchiette — will be made on the premises daily and will be available uncooked for purchase as well as prepared in-house for lunch. In addition to plates of pasta, small meals such as ‘eggs in purgatory’, panettone french toast, and bombolini with vanilla cream; veal tonnato, prosciutto & mortadella stuffed gnocco fritto and a porchetta sandwich, will be available throughout the day.

TWG Tea, is expanding with its first North American Tea Salon & Boutique opening this fall in Vancouver, British Columbia.
An iconic global brand, TWG Tea opened its first headquarters in Singapore eight years ago to initiate trading with plantations across Asia (Singapore’s geographic placement is ideally situated for TWG Teas to receive goods faster than European or American-based teahouses, which means consumers benefit from a richer, fresher and more flavourful cup). The strategic move, as well as the brand’s continued focus on quality and sourcing the finest teas from every tea-producing country in the world – currently, TWG Tea’s exclusive collection includes more than 800 varieties of elegant blends and harvests – has contributed to its impressive expansion into 56 locations in 17 cities, including London, Shanghai, Tokyo and Dubai.
