Flavours of Fall

Browned butter, ginger and sage, pumpkin spice – the flavours of Fall. From Starbucks’ famous Pumpkin Spice Latte to Kelly’s limited-edition Thanksgiving menu, we’re going to celebrate the season the only way we know how – eating our way through downtown Burlington’s favourite autumn treats.

Fall in love with your Bodhi. This Fall at Bodhi Bar, treat your body and your tastebuds with one of their cold-pressed juices or freshly-made smoothies, packed with seasonal flavours.

Everything nice comes with pumpkin spice. Try Bodhi’s Pumpkin Spice Smoothie loaded with organic pumpkin, Magull dates, cinnamon, nutmeg, banana blended with vegan organic almond milk!  Great tasting and it’s full of potassium, magnesium, and elements that will help your blood sugar levels.
