Model Eats: Hibiscus Love


Kensington’s best kept secret gluten free cafe. 

Hibiscus, hibiscus, hibiscus! That’s the name of the cafe where I had this bowl of unique vegan goodness. It is one of my favourite spots to lunch at! Located in the heart of Toronto’s vibrant Kensington market, Hibiscus offers only fine gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options that are not only scrumptiously healthy but affordable too! (You won’t find anything here for more than $10.00)

My two girlfriends and I lunched here last week and we all ordered their popular salad bowl. My friend Natalie was so impressed that she managed to take a quick picture of it before happily devouring it. There was a bevy of tasty ingredients happening: quinoa, sweet potato, broccoli, kelp, beets, beans, kale and okara. Served with a raw cracker, this definitely hit the spot.

While you’re there, make sure to try their (gluten free) savoury and sweet crepes with a cup of warm matcha tea latte. It’s also a popular place for dairy free ice cream with an assortment of flavours like almond chocolate, coconut, raspberry coconut, pistachio….you drooling yet?

Oh and for those of you who are Justin Nozuka fans – he’s often seen here lunchin’. 😉
