Local Public Eatery is your neighbourhood gathering spot, with restaurants across Canada and in Seattle, bringing family and friends together over local craft beer, wine, cocktails, and elevated food that comforts the soul, sports, and social games.

The “LPE” monogram was initially inspired by traditional baseball logos, which not only captures the sports culture Local Public Eatery embraces, but how team logos represent more than just the game, they represent an entire city, a culture, an attitude.

All these logos were intended to be used on swag and merchadise.
