Fruitful 2016 Producer Profile – Cafe Belong

Fruitful is back! Not Far From the Tree’s artisan preserve collection is returning for 2016, and we’re proud to feature our producing partners here on the blog.

belongIf you’re feeling peckish after a long day exploring the trails around the Don Valley, you’re in luck – Cafe Belong has you covered.

Tucked in behind the Evergreen Garden Market, Cafe Belong has both table service and a coffee counter, where you can find seasonal fare overseen by Chef Owner Brad Long and Executive Sous Chef Laird MacArthur. Whether it’s shakshuka, a charcuterie board, fried chicken, or panna cotta, you can expect the food to be local, organic, and served with pride. Communal, family-style meals are also available for dinner, with five courses and all the fixings.


Also available for catering, Cafe Belong is able to help with event planning at the Brickworks and customize menus for your event and guests. Their mission includes a ‘circle of sustainability’ to surround every experience, creating connections to the land, the food, and farmers. As participants with organisations like Mealshare and Restaurants for Change, they’re also committed to giving back and sharing good food with the community.

You can find Cafe Belong at, and in the Evergreen Brickworks at 550 Bayview Avenue. Their pear butter was made with pears from Al Ferri & Sons in Huttonville, Ontario.

Fruitful provides you with your very own batch of handcrafted products and preserves. Each item in your 2016 Fruitful batch is artisanally produced by one of five local producers with fruit hand-picked this season with Not Far From The Tree.

Fruitful packs cost $60 and can be ordered online now, with pickup starting mid-November. Only 200 packs have been crafted, so order while supplies last! More information can be found at our shop.

  1. This is a great spot. My wife brought home 4 or 5 absolutely wonderful items and we will be returning later in the season. I encourage everybody to pay them a visit.
