First Review by Nora74

Vegan/Gluten Free pie and ice cream! - Edit

Delicious coconutty ice cream. Pie is pretty good. A touch bland & dry. Not as good as regular pies. My partner said the regular pie was delicious.
Beautiful presentation with cinnamon hearts! Good soy mylk latte. Strong.

Pros: Super nice and helpful staff.

Rude, unfriendly, unhelpful - Edit

Awful, awful, awful customer service! Time and again, the staff either ignores you or – on those rare occasions when you can get their attention – treats you with a flippant, condescending attitude.

I work in the customer service field and I know how easy it is to be courteous and friendly toward customers, so Aphrodite's has NO excuse for this rude behaviour!

After the last incident (being hung up on) I have given up on Aphrodite's and will gladly give any of their competitors my business. If was the owner, I would be ashamed!

Oh, and their food is OVERPRICED and not very good!

NO STARS!

Cons: rude, overpriced, overrated

Vegan Pies! - Edit

For brunch they had a tofu scramble, vegan mac 'n' cheese, vegan chili, veggie pot pie, tofurkey sausage, smoothies, etc. For vegetarians, there was stuffed french toast, omelettes, quiche, lots to choose from. And the best part of all: vegan pie!

Casual, slightly upscale, warm environment.

They're open at 7:30am now for coffee and baked goods. Cafe opens at 10. For dinner they're open till 9pm (9:30p Fri&Sat).

Organic and with vegan options - Edit

Aphrodite is so expensive and sometimes the portions are tiny but they always have veggie options, that can be veganized if applicable. The hummus with roasted garlic is great.
I have been several times. I would not say I ever crave the place but it is great to meet with friends on Saturday brunch.

Pros: vegan pies, organic

Cons: long wait, expensive

A nice cafe for a quick bite to eat - Edit

A great cafe with some vegan options, including vegan pies (which are listed). They have different specials that changes often and the food is simple and good. It's more of a place to come for lunch or dessert. It can get busy, and seating is limited, so, there may be a bit of a wait during peak times.

Pros: Some vegan entrees, Some vegan pies

Cons: Street parking can be limited, Not everything on their menu is veg

Love this place! - Edit

They have a fresh sheet that changes every week, as well as the regular menu. They always have at least one vegetarian entree on the fresh sheet that is amazing. I usually go for the 3 course option. You get a soup or salad, entree plus a pie. Great vegan pie selections as well.

Pros: fresh, vegan pies, healthy

Cons: serve meat
