Let’s eat! Nourish yourself in Nourish in 2022

Delicious desserts-style drinks, delicious homemade soups, and deliciously delicious sandwiches? Yes please!

If you look up the word “nutrition” in the dictionary, the definition says “to provide or maintain nutrients.”

This is exactly what Nourish in Sudbury’s Downtown aims to do with its nutrients and joy.

The new cozy café on Durham Street offers a surefire way to sip your calories with juicy, juicy drinks.

Brooke Peterson is the woman behind the concept, along with her mother Monique Lacas, who owns the shared space with Serendipity Day Spa.

The café opened six weeks ago and Brooke says customers love it for exploring healthy combinations.

“It’s fun and healthy food with dessert in mind,” she said. “There are just so many fillers in food these days. Here it is whole and natural with sweeteners used like honey, maple syrup, and dates. Each shake contains natural pantry proteins and dairy options like oat milk.”

You’ll never know it unless you read the list, but a key ingredient in a number of shakes is cauliflower. This includes cinnamon bun, peanut butter and jelly, confetti cookie dough, and a peanut butter cup.

Strawberry cheesecake is currently the most popular type of Megafit shake.

Shakes are basically a meal in a cup with a maximum of 350 calories at $15 each. Each shake can be customized using products such as plant proteins or different dairy options.

Brooke builds each new flavor with the concept of try by mistake. Mix ingredients and taste test with each batch with a shot glass.

“The healthy stuff is what’s inside. If you choose to indulge in a bit, toppings can be added as well.”

Megafit shakes aren’t the only items on the list.

The back counter is lined with soup cauldrons. Brooke’s mother, Monique, is responsible for making the soup of the day.

“We serve turkey rice, chicken noodles, mushroom and pumpkin soup, vegetable curry and tomato beef. This week, we tried something really new that was broccoli and apple soup,” Brooke said.

The café also has one sandwich a day and baked goods like gluten-free or vegan protein muffins.

It is also fitting that the cafe is located next to the YMCA. She said many clients come for shakes and snacks before and after a workout. Spa clients come before, after or in between treatments with free lunch provided if you stay all day to get services.

Like New Year’s resolutions, the goal of the café is to expand the menu in the new year.

Each month it will feature seasonal shakes, and add items like flatbread sandwiches and salads that keep their name, nourish.

Nourish is located at 146 Durham Street in the heart of downtown. For more information, visit SerendipityOnDurham.com/

It’s also on Facebook at @nourish.sudbury and on Instagram at nourish.sudbury.

Current business hours are Monday through Friday from 9 am to 8 pm, Saturdays from 10 am to 6 pm. The cafe is closed on Sundays.
