breakawayLogoA little getaway of a café located on the lower level of Concordia Hospital just outside the public elevators. The Café is part of the Concordia Foundation family and managed by Concordia Wellness Projects inc.   The Café opened in June 2021 and its purpose is to serve wholesome and healthy food for the staff and visitors at the hospital.  Food feeds the spirit as well as the body and it is evidenced by the line-ups of people in scrubs and unforms with take-and-go meals, fresh coffee and their signature breakfast sandwich.
