got a vegetarian savory crepe. overall i would recommend though the prices were a bit high for what you get and was somewhat lacking flavor. points for the intimate setting and fresh ingredients.

Stopped for respite from the busy streets and left feeling fortified with good food. Wait staff was very accommodating with a full house. Service quick. The House salad was a meal in itself. Could have had a little more dressing to perk up the 42 health giving ingredients. The mix of young families to group of 12 young people made... More

We stopped in for savory crepes, a treat for those of us unable to eat gluten. I chose one with chutney, vegan cheese, pecans and pears. The first bite was bland. The second was oh-so-yummy -- because I hit a chutney patch. Without the chutney, there wasn't much flavour and there wasn't much chutney. My companion had a mushroom, spinach... More

I love their crepes! Everything is gluten-free and vegetarian, and there are lots of vegan options. It's a small place with limited hours of operation, but great food.

Simple and complex !!! House salad is extraordinary. Very small, not elegant, tight tables perfect for lunch. Very friendly service and everything we ordered was superb!

Located in the trendy, hippie area of downtown Toronto; Kensington Market is full of every possible food you may want. Hibiscus is a small cozy restaurant serving up allergy friendly food. Their main dishes include crepes, soups and salads as well as a variety of drinks. The flavour of each prepared item is great value for the money. You will... More

This place is absolutely amazing! They have nice jazz music, the crepes are delicious and the ice cream was simply the best I've had. The best part is that it's all vegetarian and gluten-free!

We went on a Sunday around 1:00. We walked around the market while we waited for our table which was fine and expected. Then we were told it would be a 30 min wait for any crepe. The menu is basically crepes with the only other items being soup and salad. We were too hungry by that point to go... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
