CAN Waterloo is an eco-friendly, vegan joint perfect for all occasions. Owners Ryan and Lou are have permanent residence in Crosby, after a brief stint in the Baltic Triangle. We popped in on a Saturday afternoon to eat and learn more about the plastic free can bar.
We ordered the Mushroom Bourginon pie with red wine gravy and mash and the Sloppy Joe. Made from jackfruit and served with fries and dairy-free cheese, the Sloppy Joe could easily pass as pulled pork. The pie was stuffed full of mushroom and veg, with delicious gluten-free pastry.
CAN, Waterloo regularly host kitchen pop-ups with vegan chefs. This weekend there will be a Kanassa Kitchen Takeover – a night of wholesome street food inspired by vibrant Columbian flavours and ingredients.
It’s refreshing to speak to restaurant owners who are striving to reduce the waste and carbon footprint of their business. Ryan and Lou make sure they don’t use any single-use plastic, and clean using eco-friendly and vegan products. They host eco-brick workshops and actively work with their suppliers to reduce waste. CAN locally source the majority of their food and drinks with the Gluten Free Pie Company, Crosby Coffee, The Little Macaron Shop and Liverpool Tea Warehouse all supplying their goods. Every action is taken to make sure that all aspects of CAN are as environmentally friendly as possible.
CAN, Waterloo serve coffee and alcoholic beverages, all in cans, hence the name. Check out their Instagram and Facebook for details about their upcoming kitchen pop-ups, opening times and pictures of their delicious pies.
