Meal Preppers Unite! Exploring Our Lunch Menu
So, what's French Lunch about? First and foremost, we’re a healthy meal shop.
Every menu item that we cook in our kitchen or imported from Europe, is, in one word, FRESH. We've painstakingly hand-picked all of our items from a long list of European classics.
First, we look for healthy, fresh, preservative- and sodium-free ingredients. If a food item passes this test, we source it and sell it in our store.
We also look out for nostalgic, sentimental foods that you may have grown up with in France, Spain, Italy, or someplace else. To offer you even fresher, healthier and more convenient meals, we freeze the foods we cook in recyclable containers that are microwave or oven-ready.
Our specialty is the "French Lunch", which is... you guessed it, a lunch of fresh foods. But not just French foods: we throw a bit of Spanish and Italian in there too. All items come in 16 oz. or 400ml (school or office-sized) and 24 oz. or 650ml (hungry bear or share) sizes.
16 oz. is perfect for one adult or two school-aged kids. 24 oz. is great for two adults or one very hungry teenager.
If you order a starter, a main course, and a dessert together, you've ordered a French Lunch. You can also order an entire week of lunches, AKA our French Week special.
This includes 5 main courses starting at $33.50 (16 oz.). Save yourself a lot of time by ordering your lunch online. It'll be ready for pick up at our store promptly.
Online, we offer four starters that you can pair with any main course, including baby carrots, grape tomatoes, or celery sticks with alioli dip and cheese macaroni salad.
Aioli is a Mediterranean garlic and olive oil dip. It makes eating veggies fun and tasty, especially for fussy kids.
The macaroni salad combines pasta with dried veggies, including red bell peppers and celery with yummy cheddar cheese. It's definitely healthier than boxed, sodium-rich, bland, and artificially-flavoured mac and cheese.
Other in-store starters that we'll be introducing soon include brie with crackers and grapes (everyone’s favourite!), olive oil breadsticks with coppa di parma, and red potato salad.
See all of our main courses here. We've got:
This French-imported quiche blends zucchini, grilled eggplant, red peppers, onions, and olive oil. If you feel peckish and want some vegetables baked in cheese, definitely try it. One piece fills one person for one meal.
Dessert might just be everyone's favourite part of a meal. It's always nice to end a meal with something sweet, fruity, and/or chocolatey. For desserts, we have caramel dessert bars, chocolate dessert bars, and lemon dessert bars, if you want something similar to cake.
Or you can grab some packaged European desserts like nougat bars, a can of peach slices in syrup, dates, and apricots.
We also sell petit fours, truffles, pecan squares, macarons, Cocomira confections, Palmier biscuits, and a lot more. Just check the pantry drop-down menu on our website.
A Real French Lunch
So there you have it, a comprehensive listing of French Lunch's starters, main courses and desserts. You can combine all three for a solid French Lunch experience — it'll be like eating in France itself.
You can even buy 5 main courses for the French Week experience. We personally recommend the cordon bleu; it's our favourite!
As always, we look forward to feeding you,
