Luna Cafe

Posted by Staff / Posted on June 5, 2006

Luna CafeThere are lots of great cafes in this city, but one of my all time faves just might also be the most off the beaten path. Nestled on the corner of Dovercourt and Argyle, Luna Cafe is the perfect neighbourhood spot to stop by for some fair trade coffee, chai, hot chocolate or even a bite to eat.

I was recently there on a rainy day where I had my pick of cozy wood tables where I could sip my soy chai latte ($2.75) above and flip through the latest issue of Spacing Magazine. It's not usually that quiet but it was 4pm which on most days is past closing time. Luna isn't licensed - although it would make a great little bar if it were - but the cafe is a good option for brunch, lunch or a mid-afternoon snack.

Is there free wifi available here? Looking for a place nearby to sip a good cup of coffee and get some work done too.

We held a private birthday party at Luna Cafe last month - it was a fabulous evening. The food was amazing and the service was truly phenomenal!!

Free wifi at Luna! Great coffee, really good, home-made, organic food and very nice staff. I live around the corner and go here as often as I can.

Just ate this week. The patio was nice, the breakfast was ok.

I had the frenchman's breakfast. The baguette was fresh and the brie plentiful (nice touch). The eggs were definitely not over-easy but sunny-side flipped upside down (lame move), and my sausage cut in half lengthwise (!!!) and the life had been sucked out of it by over-grilling (no moisture). There wasn't enough coffee in my cappuccino and overall it failed to leave an impression. My friend's french toast was spectacular however.

I would return for the ambiance only, but I think they need to hire someone with culinary experience. Too pricey for the quality offered.

I just moved into the neighbourhood from Roncy and I gotta say over the past week they have yet to open on time and when someone does show up, it looks like they struggled to make it in. Its not as if they're opening at 6am, which one would expect in order to not miss the morning rush. Its 8am! well into the morning. It just seems as if the staff don't take the business seriously and makes me wonder if they feel the same about their product.

Whenever we plan a trip back to Toronto all we can think about is when we will be able to go to Luna for lunch or brunch. We often make it a meeting place for other get-togethers. Everything is made with care and tastes spectacular. It feels family run in the best way. So relaxed I feel like we took a trip to europe when our steaming cuppas arrive at our table. A great place to read a book, enjoy free wifi, or gossip with an old pal. and did I mention DELICIOUS!
