Now Open in 2 Locations: #NomadYQT at Thunder Bay Airport & #NomadOnBay at 307 Bay Street


Who We Are

Nomad was first opened by Pinetree Catering back in December 2018 inside the departure lounge of Thunder Bay Airport with the goal of delivering the taste and flavours of Northwestern Ontario to the rest of the world. Two years later, and we have now expanded to a new location at 307 Bay Street, right in the heart of the Bay & Algoma District. Although the two locations operate differently, the goal remains the same: quality food made from local ingredients. You can find out more about Pinetree Catering in the link below.

Our Services

We currently operate in two locations in Thunder Bay. Our first location (#NomadYQT) is located inside the departure lounge of the Thunder Bay Airport, while our newest location (#NomadOnBay) is at 307 Bay Street. 


 Our #NomadYQT location is a “grab & go” style café with locally prepared hot beverage choices and quick food options delivered daily from the Pinetree Catering kitchen. We also carry a wide variety of local retail products such as Heartbeat Hot Sauce. Our #NomadYQT location is also licensed to serve alcohol and we do feature a variety of locally brewed craft beers from Sleeping Giant Brewing Company & Dawson Trail Brewing Company.  

Find us down by Gate #1 in the departure lounge of the Thunder Bay Airport. 


The Nomad Bakeshop & Sandwich Bar (#NomadOnBay) is our location at 307 Bay Street in Thunder Bay. Our newest location offers freshly baked loaves of bread from our “Sapling Bakery” (Also part of Pinetree Catering), as well as a custom sandwich bar, where you can let your dream sandwich become a reality. We are also Thunder Bay’s only “creperie”. We offer a variety of sweet & savory crepes, and Finnish pancakes, perfect for anytime of the day! We also carry a variety of local retail products, similar to our #NomadYQT location. 

Check us out today! We’re open Monday-Saturday weekly for takeout, dine-in, and patio dining at 307 Bay Street.

Sandwich was pretty good! Ingredients were great. Service was nice, but by no means expedient. Outdoor or indoor seating available. Pricing is $3.50/100g. Build-your-own or choose from suggested combos.

We absolutely love this place! The sandwiches are delicious and massive, the crepes are fantastic, the customer service is outstanding, and if you're in a rush the online ordering for the sandwiches is super convenient! I also love the take and bake options (we've gotten the steak and cheese pie, and the vegetarian moussaka pie), the salads, and all the local treats. Plus the fresh baked bread is delicious! We've gone 5 times in the past month.

My sandwiches are always super delicious and I love that they have a tofu and hummus option. I think they have a really awesome selection of toppings, spreads, and sauces. Heads up though, they are fairly pricey. The cinnamon twists are insane as well, I encourage everyone I take there to get one. I wouldn't recommend the crepes, the actual crepe is good but the toppings are a little strange. The strawberry option has cream cheese on it, but it's not sweetened at all. The savoury option I had was hard to get through simply because I did not enjoy the sheep's feta, but that's personal taste. I wish they wore gloves. It might not bother some people, but it makes me a little uncomfortable. However, when I requested that the person making my sandwich wear gloves, they did.

I tried it, I loved it. That's all I can say. Definitely recommended.

Very delicious. I had a crepe for lunch. Lots of options for toppings. Ate outside on the patio. Not the most comfortable seats. Overall a good experience. Would definitely eat there again.
