TORONTO — Customers are fuelling up at the new Leslieville Pumps General Store and Kitchen, a joint southern-style barbecue smokehouse and fuel station in Toronto.
Owned by brothers Greg and Judson Flom, the concept combines a general store, sandwich shop and gas station.
The interior gives off a kitschy feel with cottage-country wood, red Muskoka chairs and old photographs and newspaper clippings.
The sandwich-based menu includes Southern Style Beef Brisket made with homemade barbecue sauce, crispy sweet onions and grainy mustard ($7.74) as well as breakfast sandwiches, including the Healthy Morning sandwich with egg whites, farmer’s sprouts, grilled peppers and avocado sauce on rustic multigrain bread ($4.42).
The pumps are open 24-7 at the operation that offers catering and take-out options.
