Stopped in for a quick lunch. Was able to park at the door. Service was quick and the food was delicious. Only quibble would be the music was a bit loud for my liking but, in general, I like the atmosphere and I'll be back for sure!

If your near the bus terminal and want home made fresh food in a café atmosphere, with free wifi. this little café is very highly rated as I have eaten several times for breakfast and for lunch. The atmosphere is simple tables and chairs, with a few lounge chairs for reading A hidden gem in downtown Kitchener

Still a self-proclaimed carnivore, but every so often I'm convinced to give my meat eating ways a rest and try something new. As always I'm hesitant when approaching vegan restaurants. This great little restaurant located directly in front of the bus terminal is a great surprise. It is a casual, local, organic and community conscious restaurant/cafe. The selection is vast... More

My last review of this restaurant was negative because I have a low tolerance of poor customer service. Well it seems the owner understands and has brought his customer service expertise to the restaurant. He apologized to me for the poor service that I got and since then I have received very friendly service from the employees. I do miss... More

Beautiful vegetarian or vegan food. Beautiful vintage atmosphere. Perfect cafe or lunch spot. I used to go to study, now I often go for a nice healthy lunch. Location isn't fantastic, but it's not bad either. There is a tiny little patio out front if you want to eat outside, but you're facing the bus terminal so the outdoor atmosphere... More

After my last review about Cafe Pyrus I discovered their macaroons. Hands down the best macaroons I have ever had!!! I just had to come back and add my 2 cents :-)

Three hours ago I would have rated Café Pyrus 5 star excellent. Then I went in and had the server from hell. I guess I will change my rating to two star fair. I have been going there for several months now and after I tasted the Black Bean Quesedias (sp?) I was hooked. One server told me that for... More

HI, Thanks for your review. I apologize for the service you received. It is not the experience we want anyone to have when they come to the cafe, again I apologize. I would like to learn more about the situation to ensure that it never happens again. There have been changes to the menu recently, typically we have been very... More

Came here for lunch with some colleagues. None of us are vegan but two are vegetarians. It was so nice to have so much to choose from! Delicious sandwiches! The service was casual and friendly and the place has a real laid back feel, like no one would try to rush you out. It's not particularly cheap (what really healthy... More

Love this place! They have a great selection of food, delicious sandwiches and desserts. I find the portions a little small so a fruit scone with a nice cup of tea at the end of the meal will leave me feeling satisfied and full. It's a great hang out spot with a relaxed, cozy atmosphere and free wi fi. I... More

Vegan place that has a very casual feel, with free wifi. Was here for lunch with a business colleague. Cery slow service---I waited over 20 minutes for a spinach salad and there weren't too many people ahead of me! They also don't take charge cards. Onstreet parking is available via coins. Would not come back!
