It’s fair to say that more people than ever have been considering eating a primarily plant based diet as the science expands about the health and wellness benefits. Including an abundance of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and trace micro-nutrients. Not to mention the benefits to the environment in terms of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. And as Lower Lonsdale is a trendy and thoughtful community, we are excited to publish this interview article on behalf of Green Moustache Organic Cafe which is located right across the street from the North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce.
In this article we sat down with Tracy Spooner who is the owner and operator of the cafe to get to know her better for our readers and the community.
What do you love most about operating Green Moustache here in North Vancouver?
I love the community here in Lower Lonsdale. There are so many exciting changes happening and the people are so friendly, both our customers and our fellow business owners. The Lower Lonsdale BIA is also fantastic. They are always looking at new and creative ways to increase awareness in the community.
In terms of Vegan food options and menu items, what are the most popular?
Our whole cafe is Vegan and Gluten free. Some of our most popular items include our Veggie Wrap, Warm Chilli, Chickpea – Butternut Stew and of course our Buckwheat Waffles are to die for.
What kinds of questions do clients ask you when they first come to your business?
What is your most popular item on the menu? How long have you been open? Customers who come in are usually concerned with their health and they like to know how clean our food really is. Asking questions about ingredients, and how we make our dishes are common.
In your spare time outside of operating the business what do you get up to for activities?
I’m a busy mom of two teenagers, so they keep me on my toes lol. I also love the outdoors and you can find me hiking with my two dogs. I enjoy skiing, biking and yoga.
Lastly, is there anything else you might want our readers to know about Green Moustache?
The Green Moustache is a 100% organic cafe and we make everything from scratch. We pride ourselves on quality and consistency with every dish. The original Green Moustache cafe was opened in Whistler just over 5 years ago. There are now three other locations including Squamish and Port Moody.
You can find some of our Green Moustache products on Spud.ca. We are also available in the Be Fresh locations (Kitsilano, Main Street, YMCA downtown and Bentall Centre). Within the next month or so we are implementing some amazing new dishes such as our Donair and Breakfast wraps. Stay tuned for updates.
