Karl made his entry into the Niagara Real Estate market in 2004 and not once has he questioned that this is his calling. His ever growing passion for architecture and the next great cup of coffee to fuel his drive has solidified him as an industry leader. It has been 12 years and Karl’s passion is stronger than ever, but his game has changed. Pauline, the love of his life, his daughter Naomi, son Arie and little one Maaike Jordan help him to put things in perspective. Warm and generous and always quick to tell a joke, Karl ensures that his clients feel valued and appreciated throughout the buying and selling process.
Beechwood Doughnuts is Niagara’s first and only 100% vegan doughnut shop. Located in the heart of Downtown St. Catharines, Beechwood Doughnuts is here to prove that plant-based foods can be just as delicious as they are compassionate. Shortly after opening in January of 2015, Beechwood Doughnuts quickly gained popularity and a reputation for quality in the Niagara Region and beyond. Now located at 165 St. Paul Street!
RISE ABOVE is an all vegan restaurant and bakery, located in the heart of downtown St. Catharines, Ontario. We specialize in comfort foods, healthy choices, and fresh baked desserts. Our mission is to demonstrate to our community that it is possible to have a high quality restaurant experience without the use of any animal products. This is important to us because we believe that the elimination of animal products from our diets will result in a reduction to the pain and suffering experienced by animals, and will make our diets more environmentally sustainable. We strive to provide a diverse selection of food choices so that there are many things that would appeal to many people. We hope that if customers enjoy eating at Rise Above, they will realize that going vegan does not mean sacrificing the variety or quality of the food they eat.
A TRULY LOCAL EXPERIENCE The Merchant Ale House is one of Niagara’s longest running craft beer breweries, located in the heart of downtown St. Catharines. ‘The Merch’ is home to one of the region’s most extensive craft beer menus, featuring over a dozen house brews alongside seasonal selections from other Ontario microbreweries. Whether it’s the Old Time Hockey Ale, the Blonde Bombshell or the Drunken Monkey Oatmeal Stout, there’s quality and character in all our beers – and something for every taste. Combined with a dynamic food menu prepared from scratch, local wines and spirits, The Merchant Ale House offers a truly local experience that will keep you coming back.
