Must-Visit Japanese plant-based cafe in Toronto!

 Did you know there is a Japanese plant-based cafe in Toronto?

Whether you adhere to a plant-based diet and feel left-out from the joys of Japanese cuisine or you're seeking adventure for dinner, Tsuchi Cafe has got you covered! Tsuchi Cafe features a cozy minimalist vibe with a touch of Japanese aesthetics. On the walls, you will find garments, take-home food products, and artisanal Japanese products, should you wish to take home a more permanent product! It is located on College Street West, in Little Italy. From the moment you step inside the cafe, you are greeted with a warm welcome and a unique Eastern vibe.

Tsuchi Cafe specializes in traditional Japanese cuisine made plant-based. Customers quickly note the high quality fresh ingredients that comprise appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Whether you're plant-based or not, I can assure you that you will enjoy their exquisite meals, drinks and sweets!

When you walk in the door, I urge you to first try one of their barista-created drinks. My favorite is Hojicha Latte paired with a Matcha Tiramisu. If you're a tea lover, their Hojicha Latte is one of the must-try drinks! Hojicha is a roasted green tea, which gives it earthy, vegetal flavour profile and with a hint of sweetness. If coffee is more your thing -- do not fret, Tsuchi features coffees from world-renowned roasters, including the GTAs very own, Hatch Coffee!

After indulging in your beverage of choice, explore their varied entrée menu. This menu features popular mainstays, such as Kare Pan, a west-meets-east Morning Sando, and the 12-Spice Curry, while rotating in seasonal dishes. On my last visit, I tried some of the seasonal menu, including: the Tsuchi Plate, Chili Hiyashi Chuka, and Onigiri Set (as you will find pictured below)! As you can probably tell by now, this cafe is definitely one of my favorite cafes in Toronto!
