Urbane Cafe

The real thing, vegan with large assortment of teas and coffees ( lounge area as well ) Indulged with a Black Bean Burrito and Spinachtacular Salad with Lavender Tea , aesthetically attractive + delectable (tried Daeya instead of cheese) Bohemian ambiance in K town.

I've always loved this place. However twice recently on separate visits my husband and I were sick after our visit so now I am apprehensive. There's one particular cook who is always scratching his arms, neck and face and then he touches the food. If we see him in the kitchen we leave and go somewhere else.

I like my coffee strong. The is the ONLY place in kitchener I've found that will make me a red-eye that tastes amazing. I don't live or work near this place, but it's worth going out of my way to get that coffee. The guy who makes it the best is a short Asian man with long hair. He's the... More

I read in the newspaper last week that due to the construction in front of Café Pyrus business has slowed down. Unable to put up signs directing people the owner has put up plastic Flamingoes to direct the way. It saddens me that our city won't relent and help businesses beleaguered by the construction by letting them put up signage.... More

They have this sandwich called " The Angry Vegan" and I know why they call it that! It's because when it's over, you're angry! It is THAT GOOD!!!! OMG - yum. Healthy, lovely, fresh, and just all around goodness. Love the atmosphere there and the healthy-ness that Cafe Pyrus offers.

It's really hard to be gluten intolerant and go out to eat. This isn't a trend for me. I have major problems when I eat gluten. So finding Café Pyrus was a delight. It's vegetarian and go do gluten free well. I attended with a friend who has even more food allergies than I have and we both enjoyed our... More

After returning from Australia, it was difficult to find a good coffee place in Canada. Then I discovered Cafe Pyrus! It looks completely different interiorly compared to the exterior. I definitely would say this cafe and the baristas give off a "hipster" kind of feel. All of the baristas are so chill and nice, and they make such amazing coffee!!... More

I loved the atmosphere at Cafe Pyrus, it is comfortable, relaxed and really inviting. I met up with a friend for a morning coffee and muffin (blueberry & raspberry) it was great. I loved the choice vegan menu and can't wait to go back with my husband for a meal. Parking is a bit of a challenge though.

Great little vegetarian gem in Kitchener. Thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday lunch. Perfect spot to do some casual socializing, with internet and fun music.

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!
