When I think of Almond Butterfly, all I can really think about are those moist gluten free AND vegan chocolate cupcakes with scrumptious frosting. The last time I was there, it took me 10-15 minutes to decide exactly what to get, only to buy something completely different by the time I reached the counter!
Found along Harbord Street, Almond Butterfly is a small bakery serving vegan and gluten free pastries in shop, for pre-order or for delivery with big flavours! Walking towards the front door, there is a sitting area for two, perfect during hot summer days to enjoy the weather. Inside, there is limited seating so I find that this spot is best for a quick stop to get coffee/tea and delicious pastries or munchies if you’re near the area or are craving a sweet treat.
On days that you want to eat something a tad more than pastries, they have a selection of sandwiches and other savoury items as well, listed on a menu beside the glass showcase. It’s pretty easy to miss since the cupcakes just look way too yummy and distracting, but their savoury dishes are definitely worth a try!
