In January 2016, Sidewalk Citizen Bakery started its tradition of Tzavta- the Hebrew word for the act of sitting together, sharing food and conversation among friends. The vision was to create an intimate, convivial, intellectual space. As a bakery whose existence and name were prompted by Jane Jacobs’ sidewalk ballet as described in The Death and Life of Great American Cities, Sidewalk Citizen is committed to the public sphere and the city’s cultural fabric.

For each salon, a lavish meal is created in honour of the speaker, inspired by their passion, taste, heritage or whim. Each menu is unique and created by Sidewalk Citizen's team of bakers, chefs and pastry chefs. For each salon, an original work of art is commissioned and printed on a postcard with the menu for the evening as a keepsake for attendees.
