Meet the owners, 
Bryan + Robyn

Bryan and Robyn met six years ago at a pharmacy conference in Vancouver, stayed in touch over the years, and in 2020, Robyn made the move to Thunder Bay from her hometown in Saskatchewan.   

Bryan and Robyn are entrepreneurial, busy and energetic, so in addition to being pharmacists, owning and operating Oak Medical Arts, real estate, etc., they followed their love of coffee and charcuterie and opened Carte Blanche Café Co in December 2020.

What was once Bernie's Upholstery, has now been transformed into a café delivering delicious drinks and artisanal charcuterie!

When you visit Carte Blanche, you'll see personal touches all over the cafe; from Robyn's coffee photos from all around the world to the names of some of our coffee beverages, like the Prairie Sunrise  (named after the Saskatchewan skies).
