The beet organic cafe

Welcome to The Beet Organic Cafe! Offering a taste of local, organic, and healthy eating to Toronto's Junction neighbourhood since 2008. Located at 2945 Dundas Street West, this corner street shop is a great find if you're looking for something fresh and wholesome to satisfy your tastebuds.  I ventured out to the Beet a few weeks ago with some friends, and was so impressed with both the service and quality of the food. Our server made too much of a smoothie I ordered, so our table got an extra glass. Their specials are posted online daily, and feature whatever locally grown and/or organic ingredients they can get their hands on. Next time I want to stay for dessert...I mean when else am I going to make Vegan Kamut Ginger Cookies??
12 oz "True Blue" smooth, blueberry, fair trade bananna - comes in soy,
almond, skim or whole milk
"Farm Fresh Eggs"  - 2 local organic eggs, cheddar cheese and 
spinach on a whole wheat english muffin, side of fresh fruit
Buenos Dios Wrap (avocado, spicy black bean, pico de gallo, and raw 
Quebec cheddar) and Soup du Jour
To be honest, can't quite remember what this was, but I'm almost positive
it's the "Huevos Rancheros" - 2 baked eggs with raw Quebec cheddar, sweet 
potato mash, topped with sour cream and avocado
If that doesn't win you over, owners Michelle Vella and Heather Osler have really gone over the top by creating this cafe in the most eco-friendly way possible - the Beet was constructed using recyclable materials, from flooring to cabinetry, and all of their packaging is 100% biodegradable. So if you're ever in the area (or even if you're not), drop in to the Beet and enjoy one of their many delightful dishes. (They have an organic wine and beer menu too..) 

Happy Monday!
