ART SQUARE – Be there or be square!
With Agora being closed for renovations until 2008, I started looking around for a new place to have my brunch. Who knew that right across the road from the Art Gallery of Ontario would be a new creperie and cafe called Art Square.
It has only opened for about 3 weeks and the place is small and quaint. In the front part of the cafe, they have a small collection of beautiful paintings. The back portion, is the cafe. How’s the food? MAGNIFICENT! They have an excellent selection of savoury crepes as well as Sweet crepes, and they can be made white or brown (how healthy is that!!!). Their savoury crepes look delish with a wide range of fillings like veal parmagiana, and salmon. They are in the process of expanding their selection of sweet crepes but I am quite confident that their upcoming selections will not disappoint! The prices are very reasonable and affordable (The most expensive crepe costs $11.50 and they have daily specials for a crepe and coffee for $6.00 too!). Their list of hot drinks are amazing as they cater Illy coffee and the Tea Emporium tea. Lela (the owner) makes her own truffles and they are absolutely decadent! Made from 100% organic cocoa and fine liquer, she has a wide selection for you to choose from. Another thing I must recommend from their menu is their Tartufo! SCRUMPTIOUS! This handmade dessert is made from organic ingredients and has just the right amount of sugar. YUM!
Art Square is opened during the weekdays and Saturday from 8am to 8pm, and on the Sunday from 9am to 6pm. With such elegant decor and delicious food, this is a cafe you won’t want to miss out!
