I stumbled on Luna Cafe when out walking on a recent visit to TO and spent a sunny lunch time there. I really love all of Toronto's brick Victorians and this old corner store is a sweetie. Nice hip ambience but with plenty of original detail blended in and lots of light from the huge old windows.
Had a simple salad - very fresh greens and tasty subtle dressing. This was just a side to the wrap I had with roasted eggplant, goat cheese and sundried tomato and boy was that ever good! They must use good quality produce and prepare it with care - the eggplant was done to a tee and all the flavours played off one another in perfect balance - I'm salivating remembering it three weeks later.
I thought it was a tad expensive at first but I'm probably just a cheapskate - and $8 - $10 for a lunch, expecially gourmet quality, isn't bad at all (that included tea too - okay, I definitely am a cheapskate).
In addition to all this the staff turned me on to this great TO band which may be famous there (and everywhere else) called Metric which was playing on their sound system. I'm going to catch them here in San Francisco in a couple weeks - highly recommend both the band and the cafe.
All very grand. Food excellent as well as the sevice. Love the Fair Trade coffee.
Have recomended this lovely place in downtown Toronto to friends in Ireland and Gozo. Hope the Luna Cafe stays in this perfect place for a long time. Oh and the glorios art on the walls - wonderful.
The place is great but the address is NOT 155 Dovercourt Rd, that is a LAUNDRYMAT!
