During the holiday season, restaurants and cafes start to introduce holiday flavoured beverages. Eggnog is a classic festive drink in North America. This year, Colony and Charles Bar introduce two special Holiday Eggnogs for a very important cause. For every purchase of holiday eggnog throughout the month of December, $5.00 from each glass will be donated to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing food and assistance to those in need.

This special beverage can be served with Lemon Hart Rum or George Dickel Bourbon. Each option has a distinct flavour profile. As rum is subtle, the drink highlights the creamy eggnog, with a hint of sweetness. The bourbon spikes the holiday eggnog, with a bold and smoky finish. Colony and Charles Bar also offer dairy-free options to satisfy customers cravings.

The holiday eggnog is available at all locations in the Lower Mainland (Kitsilano, Main Street, and Northwoods) until December 31, 2018.

In addition to the hearty eggnog, the brunch here is also noteworthy. It is served on weekends and holidays from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Customers can enjoy a variety of brunch items, including the classic bacon & eggs, breakfast poutine, and chicken & waffles. Vegetarian options are also available at Colony and Charles Bar, such as the avocado toast and yam & spinach benedict.
