Celebrate Mother's Day at Claire's Corner Copia

Let us help celebrate your Mother on this special day! Beginning at 9 AM, we’ll have organic strawberries to top our homemade Vegan Pancakes and French Toast and we serve them with local maple syrup, too. Or, let her choose from several organic vegetables (think gorgeous asparagus for spring!) for her cooked to order organic Omelette, or Irish Breakfast, Eggs Florentine, or Huevos Rancheros.

Or, bring her for lunch or dinner from noon until 9 PM. We’ll have specials worthy of the queen she is, focusing on the best and most delicious organic ingredients available. And, wait until you see our desserts!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful women who helped make us the people we are today. xoxo

Happy 2019!

Dear Community,

We wish you all good things for the new year.

We’ve had a lot to be grateful for in 2018.

Our dear manager, Rose became a US citizen, and we couldn’t be more proud of her and grateful to her for being a bright and caring, fabulous addition to our beloved country. We celebrated with a party at Claire’s Corner Copia that included a delicious vanilla cake, that Margie decorated with organic strawberries and blueberries in honor of our beautiful American Flag.

Our wonderful manager, Erin welcomed a beautiful baby girl, Jane this year. Our hearts are filled with joy as we join Erin and Dave in celebrating such a gift. We can’t wait for her to enjoy her first soup from Claire’s Corner Copia.

We are so grateful for our beloved staff who continue to make this sweet little place we love remain successful - and, yummy! Each person contributes to this operation, much like a fine quilt, where each piece matters and holds things together.

You continue to support this mission of ours to bring real food, vegetarian, organic and sustainable food to this community, in a clean and happy space, where we can share our resources to help others who have been given less. We couldn’t do this without you! Thank you.

Here’s to a new year filled with good health and many joys. We hope that we will continue to find ways to lift those who need a hand up, and to feed those who have too little food. We started a pilot last year where we taught children to prepare healthy and affordable foods. These kids, ages 7-11, made French Toast with warm bananas, bean soups and stews, quesadillas, sauces with pastas, and salads with homemade dressings, batter bread pizzas with vegetable sauces, and cornbread with blueberries. Thanks to the generosity of Father Joe at Saint Martin de Porres Church on Dixwell Ave in New Haven, we had the free use of the kitchen for 8 Saturdays mornings. We are also grateful to two Girl Scout troops, one from New Haven and one from Hamden who taught the children their lessons, that included knife skills, nutrition, sanitation, and what it means to cook real food. And, those children really cooked! And, ate:-) We hope this program can continue in the future, with the women from local Churches, Synagogues and Mosques who have kitchens that we can use. That is our hope.

We will continue to research ways to prepare foods for you that will contribute to your good health while making foods and drinks that are so delicious that you will be eager and happy to have them.

Here’s to your happiness and your good fortune. So much of both, that you’ll have plenty to share with others who have been given less.

And, please eat those 7-9 servings of organic vegetables and fruits every day, and include whole grains, beans and legumes, nuts and good oils to keep your immune systems in good operation. We need you!

Fall, 2017

It's hard to believe that it's already October 20th, because the sun is shining and it's 70 degrees. We're loving it! Warm weather AND, pumpkin:-) Yes, the temperature might feel like summer, but our kitchen is all fall with our delicious favorites, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and butternut squash - in pretty much in everything. Pumpkin loaves and pies, cookies, and woopie-pies, lassi and buzzed pumpkin drinks with plenty of chocolate and our cold brew. You'll find fall in our soups and pasta sauces, tacos, and ravioli, risotto dishes, and rice balls. Crazy, but our sadness over leaving our beloved summer tomatoes behind totally disappeared when the glorious, orange food returned:-) 

And, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and butternut squash are super healthy, too. Loaded with the powerful antioxidant, beta-carotene, these fall foods are so good for their role in cancer prevention, and they are also loaded with fiber, which is great for our heart and digestive tract, and their powerful carotenoids help keep our skin healthy, too. 

We wish you a healthy and happy fall season. Thank you for your kind and unwavering support. 

Love and Peace, 

Claire and our entire fabulous Team
