Eclectic style café with lots of great food options. Even gluten free vegan baked good to satisfy your sweet tooth.

The menu is very nice, buy the main attraction is the sitting area and its decor. The cafe has a lot of sitting space, including some couches , also there are books and games. It is an amazing place to hang out for 2 hours

I come to Pyrus often with my family. They love it. The space works great for my grandkids. The menu items tie into my eating lifestyle, with no grains. I will keep coming back.

I had only imagined such a place in my vegan dreams;) I'm so happy my family found this place. I love cooking but as a vegan it has to be all the time. It's nice to finally have the option for someone to cook for me, and even better than I can at home! My very picky 2 yr old... More

My partner and I were spending a few days in Kitchener-Waterloo and this restaurant had been recommended. It exceeded expectations. The vegan breakfast wrap was scrumptious--much better than the tempeh wraps I make myself. Their featured coffee was awesome. I also appreciated that the restaurant had information on how eating vegetarian reduces climate impacts. I'll definitely be back.

I work at a café of a similar sort in my town back home and was very happy to make polite comparisons. Beautiful art on the walls, a unique service experience (that involves plastic animals.. curious?), delicious - vegan friendly - affordable food, and gender neutral bathrooms. I'd recommend The Big Bang, but wouldn't advocate for their chip fries. It... More

Came here with my mother on a Tuesday late afternoon and was very excited to eat at a Vegan restaurant. After getting through a ton of road construction ( not anyone's fault) we parked in the rear. Upon entering the atmosphere was what I had anticipated, "hipster". The menu had a fair bit of options and laid out in a... More

Hi Kaylinlis, Thanks for your review of the Cafe. I am very concerned about your experiance as there is free parking at any of the city parking garages and we have coupons. The parking lot in the back is pay, but you should not have been prompted to tip in order to get change. If you could provide any more... More

This place is vegan heaven. I have taken many non-vegan friends too, and they also love it. The food is delicious, and prepared to order. I have thrown some strange orders to them regarding cold coffee drinks, and they are so willing to help me. Really friendly staff, delicious coffee and food. I will return over and over again.

Thank lswToronto
