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!

The food is a bit pricey for the serving size -- be sure to get cheap-addons like a side salad, or you'll be left hungry. Other than that, I find their food fairly tasty and the ambiance is nice. Fairly speedy service.

LOVE IT! It's hard to find good vegan restaurants outside of big, big cities, but this one is awesome! It's a cozy little cafe that serves sandwiches, soups, desserts, coffees, teas, juices, etc. Friendly atmosphere with movie nights, books, games, wifi, etc. Definitely a fun place to hang out and feel at ease and most importantly know that your food...

Very welcoming, wonderful selection of teas. I wasn't eating but their food looked fabulous, as well. Had a lovely visit with a friend and for my first time in Kitchener I was very pleasantly surprised. I've already recommended it to several friends and can't wait for another excuse to travel back to the city. A gem for sure.

This place has good coffee and locally sourced food (a bit pricey) and a fantastic vibe to it that makes it very comfortable and cool. Where else can you chillax on a couch drinking your coffee while reading some of the provided books, comic books, or playing a game?
