Would you like some hummus on your Big Mac?

Over the next few months, fast food chain McDonald’s will begin rolling out McCafes in Canada that offer the sort of healthier fare you may expect to find at, say, your local Le Pain Quotidien. According to Business Insider, the specialized cafe-style shops will feature the brand’s coffee alongside kale and Brussels sprouts salads, lentil and sweet potato hummus wraps, and chipotle chicken sandwiches (on a multigrain bun, mind you), prepared for grab-and-go consumption.

But don’t start dreaming of spirulina-boosted McFlurrys just yet. Because this is McDonald’s, the menu also includes “croissants, a mini chocolatine, and cream cheese danishes made with real fruit.” (As opposed to the other kind of fruit, I guess?)

And it could be a while before your local golden arches gets a little greener. “The company often tests concepts in Canada and other well-performing markets, such as Australia, before considering bringing them to the US,” notes Business Insider.
