    Almond butterfly is by far one of my favourite restaurants in the city, and is a safe haven for anyone with celiac. The Cajun homefries are to die for.

    Loved the seating we had, the place has such cute decor! Also one of the owners was impeccable with service. When I had an issue with the food, he immediately replaced my meal. We felt so loved and appreciated and it was so special that it was my birthday brunch! Thank you Almond Butterfly, we will definitely be back again!

    The only gluten-free restaurant I know in town... I purposely go to this restaurant to have a gluten-free beer—they are OUT OF GLUTEN-FREE BEER. Such a disappointment. Not a single gluten-free beer in sight... Also, and this is the second time this happens, we show up for dinner for the last serving (they don't serve past 7:30 PM, which is fine) and the fries are dry and overcooked AF. No one at the table ate them and that's 4 people. Not the level of care/quality I was expecting. Not sure I'll return.

    Almond Butterfly BistroResponded on April 22, 2023Hello, so sorry your experience did not live up to expectations! We apologize for the shortage in Glutenberg beer- we will ensure our beer levels are keep up-to-par as much as possible going forward! I apologize about the french fries; was this mentioned to the server during the quality check? We immediately do our best to rectify any issues with the food, and next time will make you new french fries right away. Our kitchen is open nightly until 8:45pm; last reservation slot is 7:30pm. Thanks.

    This is my first time at Almond Butterfly and I love the aesthetics of the restaurant. the pink and green hue really brightened up the atmosphere. Me and my friend ordered the signature mimosas and discovered that they have a couple different flavours to choose from. I ordered the orange mango and she ordered the strawberry watermelon and both tasted very refreshing. I ordered the farmer's breakfast with chorizo sausage. I got to say the side of potatoes was perfectly seasoned, crunchy on the outside but soft and fluffy on the inside.

    The avocado toast and feta cheese on gluten free bread was very tasty. My husband enjoyed his gf beer battered fish and chip. However, we waited 50 minutes for the food to be served. Be prepared to be there a long time.

    Almond Butterfly BistroResponded on April 18, 2023Thanks for visiting, Adele! We appreciate you dining with us! Due to unforseen circumstance, we were short-staffed in the kitchen that day. It's not the norm- we promise the food will come much quicker next time! 🙂 Thanks again!

    Almond Butterfly BistroResponded on April 18, 2023Hi Karina, thanks for visiting! I apologize for the wait on Sunday, as we were short-staffed in our kitchen (we promise it will be much faster next time!). Thank-you for your feedback with regards to your server- I have used it as a training tool to improve their service. Thanks, Davd (Co-owner)

    My daughter ordered the avocado on toast meal and I ordered the Farmers Breakfast. She had a mimosa and I had a glass of white wine. Both entrees were good, with generous portions. It was very busy and took a while to get our food.

    Almond Butterfly BistroResponded on April 18, 2023Thanks so much for visiting us, Heather! My personal apologies for the wait, as we were short-staffed on Sunday due to factors out of our control. I personally promise to you that it'll be much faster service next time! :) Thanks again, and hope to see you back soon! - David (Co-owner)

    Great location on dundas, the fact that everything is gluten free is a much added bonus. The quality of the food does not lack, you cannot tell at all it is gluten free. Love the variety of food they have - something for EVERYONE and with almost all dietary restrictions and allergies. Really impressed

    Was disappointed by the foods and coffee. Ordered the pancake stack, smoked salmon toast and coffee. The pancake was just sweet and not much flavour. The toast was better but nothing special. The coffee was weak. I was expecting much more seeing how popular this place is.

    First time at restaurant rather than just the bakery. Kitchen was very slow, over an hour before we had food. Grilled chicken sandwich was missing elements (bacon) and chicken was over done. Chocolate cookie we brought home from the bakery portion of the space was not fresh, rock hard. Other bakery items were great.

    Almond Butterfly BistroResponded on April 4, 2023Thanks for visiting, AHSG. We're ramping up service staff levels as we speak; come back soon, and I promise things will be much smoother, and the food will be just right! Thanks again for visiting. - David, Co-Owner

    I've eaten here many times before with great service and food but this time the food was cold and overcooked. Service was terrible with the server never coming back after the order was taken. Would have liked a coffee refill but could not get the attention of any server since we were at the table tucked away at the very front.

    Almond Butterfly BistroResponded on April 4, 2023Thank-you for your feedback, Mel. Rest assured, it has been used as a training tool. The food should be nothing but WOW! when it arrives at your table, along with the service. We will do better. Hope to see you again soon! Thanks again. - David, Co-owner

    The restaurant was crowded and super noisy; so much so that my friend and I had to strain our voices to hear each other. The food was terrible, my eggs were cold, bread was not toasted, salad was soggy and over dressed , and tomatoes were hard and tasteless (can't believe I had to pay extra for this). Will not be going back.

    Almond Butterfly BistroResponded on March 28, 2023Hi TO156, we're so sorry your experience did not live up to expectations. It's true, on busy weekends and holidays, our small bistro offers a loud and boisterous "brunch club" experience. However, the food should **always** be served hot, and do nothing less than completely wow you. Our servers are trained to check in with quality checks to ensure everything is completely satisfactory; we'll always do everything we can to make it right- we will use your feedback to improve. Thx, David, Co-Owner
