I am not gluten free but the vegan breakfast was lovely and the vegan bagel was great. My gluten free friend was in heaven and the cafe is really cute.
Thanks so much, Sandra! We're so happy you chose to dine with us, and look forward to seeing you again soon! 🙂

Thanks so much for dining with us, Spragette! We're happy you enjoyed the experience, and hope to see you again soon!
We booked a late brunch and we had an excellent experience. Four women having fun with mimosas and eating delicious breakfast at 2 pm. We took awesome pictures because the restaurant is very cute and the decoration is full of pastel colors and butterflies and neon signs that enhance the experience. I hade a salmon bagel and it was perfect. The desserts are awesome as well.
Thanks so much, Bebsabe! We really appreciate you choosing to dine with us. Your review made our day! Glad you had a great time, and we can't wait to see you again soon! 🙂
Awesome gluten free. Best breakfast of the year.
Thanks so much, Alex!! We really appreciate it! 🙂
Great little spot for brunch in the city, many options on the menu to cater to various dietary restrictions. The ambiance and decor is super cute.
Thanks for dining with us, Sara! We really appreciate it, and hope to see you again soon! 🙂
The food was great and the service was as well. We got to eat outside which was a bonus because it was a beautiful day!
Thanks, Brenda! We were definitely blessed with a gorgeous day! Please come join us again in our dining room. We hope to see you again soon! 🙂
Service started out very great and then our server abandoned us - no check-in on us during our meal (which would have led to us ordering more drinks/food) and after I ordered a simple sandwich type item to go after finally flagging the server down, no update on the status of that take-out order. I had to chase the server down again for an update after a very long wait and then had to wait even longer (was the order not placed??) after being just simply told that they were very busy. This was a miss for me. I'm usually a loyal regular and was introducing a friend to the place at this visit, so it was unfortunate on many levels. Although I would recommend this place, it would now be with some warning on the care of the service.
Hi Nicole, thanks for joining us. We apologize for any inattentiveness you received from your server; we've taken it upon ourselves to use your feedback as a training tool, as we ramp up our service level to accommodate higher volumes. Thanks again, and we hope to see you again soon. 🙂
Incredible food and value. The service was lovely. Love the ambience of the place! Our food was served in what felt like record time after ordering. I’m gluten and dairy intolerant so it was wonderful to experience a brunch where I didn’t feel like I was missing out - my partner LOVED it and he has no dietary restrictions. All around an excellent experience and can’t wait to try other dishes. Love this place!!!
Thanks so much for the awesome feedback!! We really appreciate it! 🙂
Went there for brunch with several friends. Very busy. The takeout line was at the front area so it is quite crowded as you try to go in for your reservations. Food was good. I got the stacked pancakes. My friends got the farmers breakfast. Their sausages looked over cooked and so were their fries / potatoes. The server also kept bringing us the wrong order several times. But all in all our group had a lovely time. Decor is cute. Since it’s post-pandemic lock down I think most restaurants are still re-adjusting to busy crowds with new staff so I would give this place another shot. Not bad, not great, but given circumstances this place would probably be quite good once their staff gets settled in.
Delicious food. Charming and attentive server.
Absolutely outstanding food! Such a comfort for celiacs to be able to eat safely. The service is equally wonderful.
Thanks so much, Kimberley! We hope to see you again soon! 🙂🧡
Food was delicious and portions were huge!
Thanks so much, Stephanie! We can't have anyone going home hungry, now, can we? 😀 So happy you enjoyed everything, and we hope to see you again soon!
We love this place! It’s one of the few restaurants that a family with a celiac kid and a non-celiac kid can eat with everyone living their food
This restaurant has delicious food and lovely decor. It should decide whether it wants to do dinner service, as right now it’s half committed, by closing the kitchen at 8 and the restaurant at 9. This results in a pretty dead atmosphere. If it wants to do dinner, it should fully commit by staying open later and drawing a bigger crowd.
Thanks for the feedback! Our kitchen is now open until 8:30pm Sun-Thurs. Our restaurant is open until 10pm on Fridays and Saturdays. 🙂
Great experience, very busy but the service was great and the food delicious!
The aesthetic of the place was very pleasing on the eyes. The food was good and the servers were great.
Almond Butterfly continues to be our favourite go-to restaurant. It never fails to deliver great food, a warm, welcoming and fun atmosphere and wonderful service. Our daughter is celiac so the dedicated gluten free kitchen helps put our mind at ease so we can just relax and enjoy ourselves. We have tried practically everything on the menu and it is all delicious...you would never know it is gluten free! Whether you feel like indulging in pub fare or sticking to healthier options you will not be disappointed. Oh and the desserts...they are out of this world. I have about five favourites! We beg you to open an Almond Butterfly in the East end! 😁👍🏻 Oh and I should mention that Covid protocols are in place and we felt perfectly safe dining in.
I’ve loved every experience I’ve ever had at HF Cider. The owner, and the whole team, always blow me away. The food is delicious and cider options are fantastic!
Hi Brett, we totally agree!! Her Father's Cider on Harbord Street is awesome, and definitely one of our go-to spots.. *love* their burger. Of course, we're not HF Cider, but our burger is pretty awesome too!! 😄 (if we do say so ourselves)
Staff was lovely
Thanksgiving brunch with the family. First time here, everyone loved it. Will be back :-)
Very nice spot on Dundas West. They serve great food. Good place to catch up with friends.
Great selection and options
Great food and overall experience! The staff was extremely friendly and the food was exceptional. Great prices as well.
Food was very oily not very tasty at all
Food was good but service was slow and inattentive.
Hi Craig, thanks for dining with us. We're doing our best ramping up our service staff, and will constructively use your feedback as a training tool. Thanks! 🙂
Great food & drinks, nice little curbside patio.
Our waiter was amazing. He was friendly and attentive and offered great service. Food was delicious and didn't even seem gluten free.
Thanks so much, Delaney! We'll definitely relay your feedback to your server, Alex. Thanks again for dining with us, and hope to see you again soon!
All gluten free options which made my wife very happy and not worried about being contaminated. I would highly recommend.
Thanks for dining with us, Brad! We really appreciate it, and are happy you had a great experience. Come back to visit us again soon! 🙂
We booked for inside. After a 20 minute wait, we got sat outside. Other than that, great experience.
we absolutely loved our experience. The staff were incredible and the food was completely fresh
Thanks so much!! We really appreciate it. 🙂
totally blown away and happy with our experience!!! cant wait to come back when able to!!
Thanks so much! We can't wait to have you back! 💗
Great place to catch up. Great food and atmosphere.
Service was on par, ordered traditional breakfast with smoked salmon added and chai tea. All are delicious and fresh. We sat outdoor, quiet not busy, comfy. Will go back
Lovely food, great wait ataff
Good food and lovely staff! What more could you ask for?
Consistently delicious. Amazing and attentive staff. My favourite brunch place in the city.
I order from this restaurant all the time, and recently have been visiting their patio with friends. This is my go-to spot when I bring friends to the city, it has options for every dietary restriction, and is 100% gluten free. Perfect for me, as I have been gluten free for years. The best part - nothing tastes gluten free. It's easily the best gluten free food I've ever had. They do great brunch, dinner, and the best baked goods in the city. The staff are all very kind, accommodating, and the owners/managers are incredible. I'll be sure to recommend and keep coming back.
There was a mix up at first with the servers and some table confusion, as both servers thought the other one was waiting on us. So we waited about 25 mins before we approached someone to ask what was up. Once they looked into it and straightened everything out it was great from there-and they picked up our drinks as well.
Food is excellent and I would highly recommend Almond Butterfly. Everything is gluten free, but nothing is lost on taste that's for sure.
Very accommodating for dietary restrictions! Loved it!
