Hibiscus Café is a beloved lunch bistro and café in Kensington Market that's made a name for itself as one of Toronto's best spots for vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free organic dishes and desserts. Hibiscus was first brought to life in 2005. The original owner, inspired by a vision of healthy living, created a menu rich with nutritional dishes.
The café quickly became a fixture in the ever-bustling Kensington Market. It was in 2012, mid-meditation class, that Andrey Malkov (already a devoted customer) learned that the then-owner was moving away. He decided, along with his sister and parents, to take over the prime locale.
Andrey and his sister Elena were already committed to plant-based diets when they dove into the world of food. "For me, [a vegetarian diet] is better for the environment, our health, and also for the spirit," Andrey explains. The two siblings continue to share in most of the behind-the-scenes work. Andrey acts as Hibiscus' daily manager, while Elena works to develop the menu, create new recipes and redesign the space when needed.
With over a dozen varieties on the menu, Hibiscus Café is easily the king of crepes in the Kensington Market. Each sweet and savoury crepe option is made with vegan buckwheat batter and comes with a side of greens, zucchini and avocado. Oh, and make sure you leave room for some homemade dairy-free ice cream for dessert.
