Okay, I have to admit this cafe never registered on my radar. The Lazy Tulip was recommended to us as a spot nearby for lunch. Yes, it's a vegan and vegetarian cafe but they do have meat like chicken on the menu. If your not...More

Hey...thanks for the review! I'm not sure where these plastic plates came from but we don't have any..not even one! We do, however, have these wonderful, colourful plastic glasses that we got at Costco that are extremely suitable for a cafe...especially when we hand wash...More

Food isn't anything spectacular and neither is the service, but if you're a vegan/vegetarian/gluten free eater, this place caters to you. A bit pricey.More

Love this place. Nothing matches, everything is cozy and comfortable. Food is reasonable, fresh and delicious. Nothing but good vibes here. Centrally located in downtown Barrie, steps to waterfront, stores, waterfront. We'll be back.

A great fast, fresh and delicious lunch spot. Bread was fresh! Stopped in for a quick lunch break and was out in 30 minutes. Great service and fresh food. Menu is small but has lots of variety in flavors.

Great little spot in downtown Barrie. We enjoyed a fantastic breakfast of Eggs Benedict and Ranchos Huevos. The presentation of the food was beautiful, kudos to the kitchen staff. The server was friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back.

The chicken salad was lovely and fresh, although I thought it was a little light on chicken and blue cheese (which I had to seriously hunt for) so I left a bit hungry. The sandwiches are well done. Wait staff was great. Nice strong coffee.

We are a quaint, soulful, independently owned cafe in the heart of downtown Barrie with a focus on fresh and conscious eating. Open seven days a week we offer a breakfast and lunch menu that strongly emphasizes vegetarian and gluten free options along with locally raised, free range chicken. Everything is made in house including our sandwich bread which is a whole wheat focaccia & our soups which are always made gluten free. The Lazy Tulip vibe is worldly, spiritual & funky. Music is a big part of the atmosphere which ranges from Indian tablas to local musical talent to current faves. We serve Planet Bean coffee, a small micro-roaster from Guelph and it's full flavored, fair trade and certified organic.
