I have been a few times in the past few weeks, as I have rehearsal in a nearby space. I always drop in for a medium roast and a treat. Last time was probably the best peanut butter cookie I've ever had. Very creamy texture, delicious. It's always busy, so I guess it is a popular place. I will return.

Definately hands down one of the best places to eat out. My wife and i just started our Vegan Diet, and the sandwiches, salad and soup were simply delicious. We had the Angry Vegan and The Benwich, but everything else looked great. Pricing was good, considering the quality you get A new regular dine out!

Great little place in the heart of Kitchener. Close to bus station and a lot of paid parking around the area. Had a chai latte that was a little watery and a coffee cake that was a little too dry for my liking. I enjoyed the environment, so will be back to try it out again

Thanks for your feedback! I am saddened to hear that you think we are pricey. We use organic ingredients, including organic local dairy and the products to make your coffee cake, couple that with fair wage and work policies, a sit-down cafe environment - its hard to make our prices much lower. I am assuming you had the GF coffee... More

If you're vegetarian, or vegan, there are lots of options here. I love the angry vegan sandwich. They always have a great soup, and gluten-free muffins too. A great selection of tea and coffee; I love the stone teapots. Sometimes the music can be a little loud, later in the afternoon, but it can be a great place to meet... More

Thanks for the great review! Sometimes in the afternoon, after the caffeine wears out, the music tends to get louder to keep us bouncing! If you ever find it obtrusive, please let us know and we will make the appropriate changes! More

This is a great spot for vegans. The menu is diverse and the atmosphere laid-back and charming in that unmatched-furniture, hang-out-on-a-couch way. Between the two of us, we had an Angry Vegan and a panini. The food is good but there's not much of it. I needed dessert after, which is rare, but my companion and I shared a very... More

It is a little pricy but it is great for someone who is new to vegetarianism or veganism. I love that is so close by. They have lots of variety. I would definitely go back. Not a place I would go everyday. But I would recommend it anyone who is open to vegan or vegetarian food to go try their... More

I've ordered a few small things from here before but today I ordered the "Angry Vegan" for takeout. When I got back to my office I realized it had tempeh bacon on it which threw me off since the menu on their website lists it as "Organic Panini. Caramelized Onion, Tomato, Organic Spinach, Artichoke Spread, Organic Aged Cheddar or Daiya".... More

My partner and I are usually at Cafe Pyrus at least once a week for coffee and gluten-free treats. The atmosphere is friendly, the treats always excellent, and the friendly baristas serve up great coffee. The rotating art exhibits are worth looking at and the music, while not always exactly to my taste, suits the environment in its eclecticism. In... More
