Our Food

The majority of our food is made fresh daily in-house, including our soups, salads, paninis, muffins, cookies and breads! We also feature food from local suppliers, such as Kiwi pies from Pie Revolution in the Slocan Valley, gluten-free Mountain Bikes from Alkeme Foods in Rossland, salsa from Rossland’s Sabrosa Salsa and much more. Greens are organic, and we buy them locally when in season. And when they’re in season, we’ll make scones and muffins with those sweet/tart mountain gems – local huckleberries.

    hello., I have tried calling and left message….I visited trail hospital for tests a couple weeks back., stopped at your coffee shop in the trail hospital where they had a couple gluten free items…(I have celiac so have to watch what I eat)…there were these peanut butter balls and nut balls dipped in chocolate…I tried them and did not have a reaction. I find it so hard to find something so enjoyable and live far out in country in Kitchener BC… is it possible to get ingredient/recipe for these two items? it would be so nice to have …I am not a business,. just a person learning to live with celiac and finding it hard to deal with. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

    When I visited Rossland in 2006 with my sister, we shared a sandwich at the Alpine Grind that contained a slice of sauteed eggplant, a slice of portebello mushroom, and some type of white cheese (maybe gouda?), among other ingredients. It was soooo delicious! What were all the ingredients?

      Hi Lanny! We’ve owned the Grind since 2009, so I’m afraid that was the previous owner’s recipe! Hopefully you’ll be able to pop by the Grind again some day and enjoy one of our paninis on our homemade focaccia. Cheers!

    Hey there. I just wanted to compliment the Grind on your amazing and filling sandwiches. Made with fresh ingredients, your sandwiches are, hands down, one of the best sandwiches I have ever eaten. Thank you for offering fresh food made with care and always offered with a smile. I can’t wait to see what you are offering tomorrow at your hospital site. Yummy!
