The Mitt Mobile is a self-proclaimed Mobile Cafe. We joined the line-up of Calgary Food Trucks during the summer of 2019.
Serving up toasted sandwiches, sometimes hot dogs, fries, desserts, specialty coffees and teas. All items are prepared by hand, in the truck and local, in-season produce and products are used whenever possible.
We're doing it right: All of our take away cups, containers, straws and cutlery is compostable. We use paper bags, and the few things we can't get made of compostable materials are recyclable! Our truck is fully run on propane.
Set yourself up at one of our tables, have a chat with a friend and enjoy the sunshine, wherever you find us!

Crazy Mitten Girl (or Erin, as she was known then), was born in Antigonish, Nova Scotia many years ago (ha). The youngest of 3 girls, she grew up in the country, frequently running around in the woods like an absolute nut (hence the "Crazy" in her future title; it was a long time coming).
Over the years, Erin developed a love for food; baking and serving people decadent offerings. The first thing she remembers making by herself is scrambled eggs, and next would likely be brownies found in her Mum's recipe box under "Chocolate Layer Cookies".
A huge combination of life-events and memories led to Erin's want to open her own cafe (as I'm sure can be said for most entrepreneurs in their paths). Some highlights are rainy day soup and toasted sandwiches with her Dad growing up, sneaking treats into friend's mail boxes and an overall feeling of comfort in cozy cafes that have been visited over the years.
Now, skip ahead to high school when Erin met some of her very best friends. During a visit, some of Erin's nuttiness surfaced in the form of some good old fashioned kitchen-dancing and she had mittens with her that she then proceeded to bop on the head of the youngest sister (you know who you are), during said dancing. And so, a new name was assigned (rightly so).
Eventually this name got shortened to "Mitten", or "Mitt" and anytime she was driving these friends around they exclaimed "To the Mitt Mobile!"
Pair all of this with super-supportive friends, encouraging feedback and wonderful experiences working with people in food and beverage settings and you have the beginnings of a business dream.
