Very good GF food in a dedicated GF restaurant. The fish tacos are highly recommended by my celiac partner. I’m not celiac, but my GF burger was excellent and the GF beer was not bad (sorry, but I’m allowed real beer). The main thing for my partner was the opportunity to have properly cooked and crispy deep fried fish, a rare treat for a celiac.

Very good food, everything is gluten free, it’s on the more expensive side but knowing everything is gluten free makes up for it. The only downside was parking. We searched for about 30 minutes prior to find alternative parking but with all the one ways and houses there was no parking. We thought we got lucky when a car pulled out and parked on the side and paid for a number of hours at the parking station (dispenses ticket) and when we got back to our car we had a $100 dollar parking ticket. Apparently you couldn’t park there even though the paying station was a few feet away.

This is a Coeliacs dream come true! 💗 We ate there two days in a row! We even picked up food to take to the airport (we all know that there is never anything GF n the airport 😠) It was a very quick trip from the U.K, if we had longer we would have definitely eaten there every day!

By far the best dedicated GF restaurant we've ever been to. My celiac daughter and I went for brunch. She got the pancakes and I got a club sandwich. Both were very delicious, especially the fries. The place is small but very cute and wonderful service. The only critique is that the cupcakes look better than they taste, they're kind of dry and lack flavor.

I have visited Almond Butterfly Bistro twice now, on separate visits to Toronto. Both times I have been very happy with the food and the service!

My first visit last year, I tried the fish and chips with a Glutenberg IPA for dinner. I recall the portion being large and very filling. What a treat to have real, fried fish and chips! I also got a few sugar cookies for dessert, and shared with a gluten-eating friend and he enjoyed as well!

I went again this past weekend for brunch. First thing - plan ahead and book a reservation if you can! We waited for nearly 1.5 hours on a Sunday for brunch because we didn't make a reservation and thought we could easily get a walk-up table for 2. Oops, lesson learned haha. Thankfully, it was worth the wait!!! Myself and my gluten-eating dining companion both ordered the farmers breakfast with bacon. It was SO GOOD that we both cleared our plates. Honestly, the best breakfast I have had in my 10 years since diagnosis. The potatoes were crispy in all the right ways, bacon was cooked perfectly and the toast was so light and delicious it truly brought a tear to my eye. The pancake was a little dense, but still tasty as the "dessert" to my large breakfast. I also enjoyed a delicious and refreshing mimosa with my brunch.

The service during both of my visits was top notch - very personable and kindly receptive of all of my compliments for how delicious their food is! Almond Butterfly Bistro will remain on my "must visit" list for future Toronto visits.

I have dined at their outside patio and had through a delivery app. The dine-in experience was much better as the delivery food lost some of its crispness (fish tacos, fries and fried chicken.). Dining in, I was over the moon with how good everything was!!! Will go back anytime! I was disappointed they didn’t have many baked goods available for dessert though, I love the baked goods at their other location. But the food and drinks, AMAZING!!

Everything is GF! This is a wonderful comfort-food brunch and dinner restaurant.

The first time I ordered the GF Fish & Chips. They even use a very good GF beer (Glutenberg) in the batter! I also shared GF Onion Rings with my wife. It was all very good!

The second time I went to Almond Butterfly for brunch - and had eggs, home-fries, sausage and toast (all GF!) It was a real treat.

They also have many Gluten Free baked good (again, everything is GF). Next time I'm there I'll buy some to take home.

Almond Butterfly offers the opportunity for this Celiac to eat old favourites with no worry!
