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.

We loved it! Food was amazing! The coffee was superb-cocktails were a bit pricey-we found the best time to hang out was Friday mid afternoon as there was less people! Our server Christina was very friendly and accommodating with our food orders..
Excellent service! Thanks 😊

Great great brunch spot! They were very busy and seemed to have some trouble with seating but was very friendly and the food was excellent. The potatoes were amazing and the smoked salmon bagel was enough for too. I’ll be back for sure!

It was really good food and very friendly staff! I had a vanilla latte and the vegan traditional breakfast which were amazing, especially the hashbrowns!

My only complaints are that we weren’t seated until almost 20 minutes after our reservation as the 2 hour table limit for the table previous seemed to overlap with our reservation. As well our drinks didn’t arrive until our food. Neither are that big of a deal as the friendly staff and great food was worth the wait!

Reasonably tasty food but service below average - waited about 5’ to be seated with a reservation. Attendant very pleasant but restaurant appears short-staffed. No utensils/napkins provided with appetizer - had to ask. Average/fair experience.

A great place to devour delicious gluten free food on a wonderful patio. Lots of selection on the menu so there is something for everyone. I went with someone who isn't gluten free and they loved every bite.

This pretty place is always reliable for excellent GF cuisine. Their chicken-pesto-penne special last night was topnotch. The re-configured social-distanced interior is lovely. The take-out is well-packaged. Their bakery/café on Harbord has an excellent variety of baked goods - as does the Dundas location - and fulfills the GF fantasies of those of us who thought tasty baked desserts were gone forever.

Amazing as always. Never disappoints and the staff is extremely friendly! Latte with almond milk was DELICIOUS. One of the best lattes I’ve had!? And, the fact that everything is gluten free is a life saver. Being someone with a high gluten intolerance, this place is a dream come true xoxo

Amazing! As a person with Celiac Disease it was such a treat to be able to order anything off the menu.
My gluten eating husband even forgot his sandwich was made with gluten free bread!
I see us returning many times.

Both my sister and I have celiac and our other friend also has a wheat allergy so Almond Butterfly was perfect for our group because even those without dietary restrictions loved the food! It was amazing and the service was great, our waitress was really nice and helpful.

I ordered the pancakes and strawberry guava juice. I loved the juice, it was fresh. The pancakes were delicious however, my only issue is the pancakes were still raw. It was doughy and when I cut into it, at one spot there was uncooked batter.
