Joe and Bethany Gurba are pretty into books. The co-owners of Dartmouth’s coming-soon The Watch That Ends The Night (15 King’s Wharf Place)—a bar and restaurant that nods to the 1958 Hugh MacLennan novel of the same name—even toyed with the idea of selling them from inside the eatery.

“It’s basically a restaurant that’s aesthetic is built on our love for Canadian literature,” says Joe. The idea has since evolved to become Sidecar Goods. An enclave sidekick shop to The Watch for people who love food and drink, Sidecar was inspired by Edmonton’s Duchess Bakeshop, and its companion fancy pantry store Duchess Provisions.

“It’ll be a hobby shop that we always wanted to go to,” says Joe. “With the best from abroad that we can’t get in Nova Scotia, or the best of Nova Scotia that will we would love to put in peoples hands.” That includes chocolate, coffee, bitters, preserves, chef knives and cookbooks. Sidecar Goods’ opening will come hand-in-hand with The Watch’s in mid-October.
