Organic eatery and store

Hibiscus is an nice quiet cafe in Kensington Market near King's Cafe, Left Feet, and Urban Herbivore. All their food is vegetarian and most of it is organic. They serve mostly soups, salads, vegan crepes (sweet and savory), and smoothies. Most of the food is vegan. There are only a few tables, so this is not a place to go to with a big group.

They have several cold salads such as quinoa tabouli, pasta, potato and others. For dessert there is an excellent selection of vegan cookies, brownies, and a large variety of homemade soy ice cream along with organic fair traded coffee and tea.

I had the Hibiscus Special which consists of soup and a selection of all 8 of their salads, which was $7.50. The soup was great -- cold mango melon soup, perfect for a hot day like today. I didn't like any of the salads though, but I'm not a big fan of salads in general. I tried their pistachio strawberry cookie and it was very yummy. They have a huge selection of vegan ice creams, and although I was on my way to dinner, I couldn't resist getting some. I got coconut and earl gray. The coconut was very yummy, and the earl gray was fantastic! My family tried it too and my dad (who is not vegan) seemed to get addicted to it.

Quiet, nice atmosphere, pretty good service, VegNews magazines to browse while waiting, fantastic soup, organic and fair traded teas and coffee, good vegan options, excellent selection of vegan desserts (ice cream, cookies, brownies, all made on location)!

I would definitely love to come back here for the quiet atmosphere and the desserts!

The owner of this store is very kind. Not the biggest menu, but the salads they offer are fantastic. They serve bean salads and the like as well as crepes (vegan options, all veg). Well worth the visit!
