    The lady who served us was very polite and nice. The food was ok. The only problem was that another waitress came to us and asked for the table because someone else had a reservation. We had just paid our bill and would have liked to stay a little longer. Little did we know that we could only stay for 1:45 hours. Too bad.

    Great variety of very tasty dishes in a completely gluten-free restaurant. It was a treat for my granddaughter who always has such limited choices in most restaurants. Our server Cailey was friendly and helpf. We will definitely be back!

    The food was great but took some time as it was busy. The wait staff were wonderful, the ambiance is nice, it can be a bit loud. I definitely recommend eating here if you’re gluten free or celiac.

    My partner is GF and DF, we are from Ireland so were worried about finding good spots to suit her needs. The Almond Butterfly was the best food, both of us have had in Toronto so far! Portion sizes were really good value also, and the staff/setting was really nice.

    was super excited to go here... cute place and good vibe, however, the food was very disappointing - eggs were like rubber (not sure how they were cooked), gluten free bread was hard - not worth the $70 for two people for brunch :(

    I’m from Northern Ontario (visiting for economic development conference) where gf options are limited, so it was SO nice to not only have options, but drool-worthy options! The food was incredible, it was a Tuesday night so it wasn’t very busy. Staff were incredible and made some adjustments to the drink I wanted to make my birthday extra special. Can’t wait to come back next year! If you ever want to expand up north, I’d be glad to welcome you :)

    The service was very good and overall the food was delicious. Unfortunately the one exception were the pancakes, which are not very good (especially when compared with how good everything else was.) Still worth a visit, though.

    We love coming to Almond Butterfly. As I have celiac disease, it is great to not have to worry about cross contamination or have a fear of eating anything that will make me sick. We enjoy the dine in experience at Almond Butterfly. Many gluten free establishments offer counter ordering, but it is also nice to have a full dine in experience.

    It was on the loud side but they were able to accommodate my other food allergies as well. Tasty, and good to know it is safe for celiacs (they are dedicated GF). My husband, who is not celiac, didn't like the bread: "it tastes like rice". I had fish and chips. We went during the winter holiday season and they were short-staffed which meant that service was slower than usual for them. They apologized.

    Eating out when you have Celiac disease can sometimes be a negative experience. Watching my son choose freely from the menu at Almond Butterfly and to get really good GF food was totally worth the trip. We will return!
