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!

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.
