About Us

The little Grimsby gourmet sandwich shop and bakery, open for breakfast and lunch.

All too often, the “fast food” we’re presented with is so focused on fast, they forget about it being food, sacrificing flavour and quality. We felt it was time to correct that. The result was bench kitchen.

Our promise to you is simple: Great food. Fast.

We source sustainably farmed ingredients. We then carefully prepare them all in-house, ready to be made into delicious gourmet sandwiches for you on the spot. Add fresh, artisanal breads and pastries, and you have a winning formula!

The meats in our sandwiches are all sustainably raised and antibiotic and hormone free. Our poultry is all certified organic. All processing of the meats are done in house and some days our smoker gets quite a workout!

We combine many modern techniques such as sous-vide cooking and compression infusion with artisanal practices such as dry curing and cold smoking to create sandwich fillings and salads that are wholesome and flavourful.

Put it between some of that famous artisnal bakery bread, scones and buns and you know it’s going to be a great day.

An appreciation for sustainable living means we always have exceptional vegetarian and vegan options for you to enjoy, as well.

Drop by and taste the difference yourself.
