Fresh baking and meals are essential to the JJ Bean experience. Even the best coffees are enhanced when paired with the right food, but because we love coffee so much we sometimes forget to mention that we make all of our food. Every day the commissary bakeries (JJ Railway in Vancouver, and JJ Bartley in Toronto) prepare our sandwiches, wraps, and treats. And everything we bake — including our notoriously good muffins, classic croissants, and gigantic cookies — is baked fresh each morning at all our JJ Bean locations.
We make our bread in-house, every day at both commissary bakeries. Our country sourdough uses a combination of coarse whole grain and white flour. Our bakers also create a custom bread — like classic focaccia, made with olive oil and fresh rosemary — for each of our seasonal sandwiches.
While we aim to keep these lists as up to date as possible, listings are subject to change without notice.
Our Gluten Free Friendly Muffins Process
Each recipe begins with a buttermilk and gluten-free flour blend base—and finishes with a crumble topping. Though they’re all delicious, only one flavour is available per day. Although these muffins are prepared in a facility that also uses wheat flour, we thoroughly sanitize every surface beforehand. Every gluten free batch is baked in a strict no-wheat-allowed muffin tray. Each muffin is also individually wrapped in extra long tulip liner to prevent cross-contamination.
Our Vancouver Suppliers
In Vancouver, the meat that we use for our sandwiches and wraps comes from Two Rivers Specialty Meats, which sources meat free of antibiotics, hormones, and chemical feed additives from local farms throughout the Lower Mainland. The flours we use in our breads and baked goods comes from Rogers Flour and a custom grain blend from Anita’s Organic Mill. Our dairy products from Avalon Dairy, including Traceable Milk for all our milk-based beverages. We partnered with Glory Juice for our organic fresh pressed juices and Munch Fresh Foods for our fruit cups.
Our Toronto Suppliers
In Toronto, we use meat from Off The Bone, which provides us with naturally raised meat products from specially selected local farms. Our dairy products come from Hewitt’s Dairy, one of the oldest family owned and operated dairies in Southern Ontario.
