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.

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.

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.

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!!!

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.

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.

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)

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.
