“Great Weekend Brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

We visit Rhizome approximately once a month for Sunday Brunch (opens at 10 am). It is one of our favorites. Love the oven roasted veggies (potatoes & yams) served with a tasty veggie omelette. The buttermilk pancakes are also a favorite. Nice strong, hot coffee, unique atmosphere and friendly service make the Rhizome a reliable spot for a good weekend brunch at a reasonable price.

Wonderful polenta, great atmosphere, great service. There always seems to be some sort of event / gathering going on here in the evening.

“Fun and fabulous!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

This place has yummy food in a casual and funky atmosphere. It has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and very reasonable prices. A great place to go with friends or on your own. A hive of local events; it's a real community hub.

“Like visiting your cool older sister's cafe, or if Foundation went gourmet.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2011

There's something down home and delicious about Rhizome. It's one of my favourite brunch spots in the city, and not just because of their savoury and unique menu. The atmosphere warm, inviting and approachable. If it's busy, seat yourself at the bar and enjoy one of their incredible espressos or specialty coffees and drool over their lovely looking desserts (or eat one, why the heck not). I love their salmon benny, but have never regretted one of my menu choices. I always feel a little pinch of pride when I take someone to Rhizome for the first time; like it's "My Spot" that I've secretly discovered and get to share with them.... and you.
