Vegan Victories: Hibiscus Cafe
Hibiscus Cafe - 238 Augusta Ave, Toronto, ON M5T 2L7
This modest cafe is tucked away at Nassau & Augusta in the heart of Kensington Market. The space gets great natural light & the tables are comfortably placed.
I was meeting a friend here at 2pm & did not have to wait for a table. I ordered a small freshly squeezed grapefruit juice for a fair $5.
Their vegan cheeses are NOT soy-based which prompted me to try the Vegan Mozzarella option with avocado, mushrooms, spinach & tomatoes. It was fantastic! The Vegan Cheddar was made from cashew among other ingredients.* Also worth trying is the banana walnut crepe, a timeless signature yet so satisfying! A nice surprise are the strawberries & blueberries. YES, you leave feeling full & satisfied!
Hibiscus Cafe is vegan & gluten-free... the base of their homemade crepes is a buckwheat flour mix, not too sweet nor too salty. The texture of these crepes is perfect to blanket your favorite, classic crepe ingredients. Never had a crepe before? Let this Parisian-inspiring cafe introduce you! They have it nailed!
