Catapult Coffee & Studio Now Open On Princess Street!

Step into Catapult Coffee & Studio at 116 Princess Street and immediately feel warm, comfortable and relaxed.  This recently renovated space has been completely transformed by Catapult Construction, another social enterprise operated out of Outflow.

Catapult Coffee & Studio embraces the social enterprise opportunity, making it a priority to employ, mentor and train those in our community who desire to advance their skills and become more employable.  This emphasis on helping the community brings Catapult Coffee beyond the practical nature of a typical coffeeshop – though we must say, this space is no cookie-cutter café.  Charming, cozy, unique and delicious, Catapult Coffee & Studio is already one of our shining uptown stars and we are excited and proud to have you in the hood!

Stop by Catapult Coffee & Studio for a hot drink, and stay awhile.  Be sure check out the creative studio, where all textiles are made by Catapult Creative, while you are there!

Welcome Uptown to Pomodori Pizzeria!

At Pomodori Pizzeria, Uptown Saint John’s newest pizza restaurant, the oven literally never turns off. Neapolitan pizzas are cooked for 90 seconds at 800-1000 degrees, in a hardwood-fired oven that is sealed each night to maintain its heat.  Served uncut as per Italian tradition, Pomodori’s individually-sized pizzas are offered in a variety of flavor combinations (think: everything from Thai chicken peanut to meat lover’s con carne), as well as with customizable toppings.

One of the main draws for Uptown restaurant-goers is Pomodori’s incredibly quick service – pizzas are brought to your table piping hot, but there’s no bill to wait for once you’re finished since you order at the counter. If sitting at Picaroons is more your speed, the friendly waitstaff will even deliver your pizza next door. What’s better than pizza and a pint?

Pomodori doesn’t just specialize in pizza, either: their espresso is to die for.  A selection of Italian-style coffee beverages compliments their pizza and gelato menu, while hand-squeezed lemonade, wine and craft beer round out their beverage offerings. The next time you’re in the neighbourhood, start your day off Italian-style with a shot of espresso or try their caffe latte for a caffeinated treat.

What are you waiting for? You can find Pomodori Uptown at:

Sculpture Saint John – Witness The Sculptures Being Created

Once again, we are so lucky to have these artistic and extremely impressive pieces being created before our very eyes, right in our backyard.

The artists and apprentices began their creations from scratch on August 9th and will continue to work and refine them until September 22nd. It is such a privilege to witness these pieces in the making, as well as interact with the artists on a daily basis. Stop by and receive a free private tour.  Then perhaps, cross the street to Gahan House for a glass of the signature ‘Hoppy Stone Fruit Pale Ale.’ With each drink, $1 is donated to Sculpure SJ – so, bottom’s up!
