True brunch, but make it vegan! ❤️ I had the vegan “eggs” and everything was tasty. Drinks were good as well!

this place was incredibly beautiful- live music was playing right outside (i think they play on the weekends at this place but double check), we watched the sun set from the outdoor patio seating and had some incredible food. our server was so great and fun to talk to. The food tastes amazing and the vibes of this place were so perfect words can’t even describe

Even the non-vegans were happy

Brunch options galore! Visited with my husband and his coworkers and all of the food was delicious. We all shared in a community style, ordering a bunch of dishes and having small portions of each (definitely recommend). My favorite was probably the nachos.

Best vegan lasagna

Hello 123 has been my go-to restaurant in the area for tasty vegan food for years! My favorite dish is the lasagna, which is so filling and hearty, and served with a generous portion of Caesar salad and garlic bread. The pulled pork burger is also excellent. They have a good selection of wines and cocktails. The vibe is friendly and relaxed yet chic - a great place to gather with family, friends, and colleagues. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough!

Excellent déjeuner!

Déjeuner d’Irène, sandwich déjeuner et benny benny: 3 succulents déjeuner!

Les deux premiers sont nos favoris. On recommande chaudement!

Le dernier a un goût savoureux!.. mais la texture devient un peu redondante à la longue (c’est mou).

Pros: Goût / Saveur , Grande portion, Prix

Wow! This place is awesome!

We came hungry and left very satisfied! I got the Lasagna and my partner got the Hello Burger. Both came with very fresh salads. We demolished every bite. The total was $44 which seemed reasonable for the amount of food and quality. The was plenty of side street parking, too.

Pros: Big portions , So many delicious choices , Outdoor seating

Cons: None

Brunch spot!

I had Irene's massive breakfast: the perfect mix of sweet savory! The place is a bit pricy so I wouldn't come here regularly, but it's great for special occasions.

Yummy bowls, generous portions!

Great range of bowls at Hello 123! In all honesty, I will only order from the restaurant on the odd occasion or if I have a giftcard as I’m not sure the steep prices are justifiable. That being said, the food is great and the portions are quite generous!

Great Lunch

Returned on May 21st, I had the sesame stir fry and it was really good, a really nice time!

I had the Hello Burger with salad and potato wedges and a hola juice. My dining companion had the Tropical Sun Bowl.

I’d like to come back and have a stir fry next time!

Staff were friendly, love the vibe and decor, neighborhood is really cool.

Delicious food and great portions!

I loved my experience here. I ordered a vegan lasagna, and I did not expect to receive a dish full of food. The lasagna came with a great portion of a very tasty salad and slices of bread with garlic flavor. The lasagna on itself was of good size, and it tasted delicious. I loved the food, I was actually full when I finished, what a delicious surprise. :D

Pros: Generous portions, delicious food, great ambience

Sweet service

My husband and I did not know what to expect of this restaurant but we were blown away by the authentic friendliness and attentiveness of the servers.

I had a green juice, a tea tonic and a turmeric latte. All the drinks tasted great. My husband had a couple of beers which he polished off pretty quickly too!

For food, we shared some Pecora‘s which had a great spiciness to them and pastry was crispy. Then we both had lasagna and were very surprised by how abundant the Caesar salad was. We especially liked the garnish of seeds on top.

For dessert, we shared an incredible chocolate avocado mousse which had a tinge of orange added. It was so delicious that I could’ve ordered another one. I make chocolate avocado mousse at home but this was far better than anything I’ve made before!

I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Pros: THE BEST service , Great drinks selection , Good sized portions

Mouth-watering vegan delights!

Amazing resto/bar. Perfect for brunch as well as lunch/dinner. Been there multiple times and no matter what I order, it’s always fabulous. Personal favourites are the pulled “pork” sandwich, mac n cheez and the breakfast sandwich.

Pros: Every dish is packed with flavour, Healthy and delicious, Great bar too

Not what I expected

This is waa my first time there, I ordered a Sandwich Breakfast Messy Fries & a Tropical Sun smoothie.

This smoothie was bland, for something that contains mango and pinnaples, all I could taste was oat milk and nuts. No sweetness as at all. (8.50CAD)

The main course was healthy and made of of quality ingredients. (17CAD)

However the Messy Fries (3.50$), which I was told by Lucas was extra potato wedges on the side on top of the already included wedges from the Breakfast Sandwich, only had extra avocado and seasoning. This was an "upgrade" not an extra. However, if your main course doesn't include potatoes, the messy fries adds them. *falm palm*
I could added extra avocado for 2$ but paid 3.50$.

In total I paid over 30$ for a meal that was somewhat filling.

Gave them a call, everything was normal including the bland smoothie.

Will I come return? Maybe if I'm in a pinch.

Pros: Vegan, Healthy

Cons: Unfair pricing, Average taste

Chill spot

I had the 123 burger and my spouse had the Asian rice. The burger was pasty, for lack of a better word, and the side potatoes were not especially tasty. The side salad was quite good. As for the rice, my spouse found it okay, but not anything special, and not worth the price.
We had mojitos, those were excellent!
The space was nice, we sat on the terrace.
The service was courteous but slow.
