Re-opening July 23rd, 2021!
All of our staff are vaccinated, and we’re ready to host you once again! We are continuing with covid safety protocols, including reduced capacity, wall-height acrylic partitions between tables, and HEPA air purifiers. More details on our safety plan available here.
Our aim is to deliver an extraordinary dining experience for our guests through an exploration of plant-based cuisine. This involves plenty of creativity, geared towards the more adventurous diner.
Instead of a traditional menu, you will only know what each course is as we serve it to you. Dishes are frequently changing with the seasons or even the day.
We can accommodate a wide range of other dietary restrictions, and always have gluten-free options. We do require 48 hours advance notice, and there may be an additional surcharge for more complicated requests. We are unfortunately not able to accommodate allium (onion and garlic plants) allergies as they are part of many of our courses.
Open for dinner, Wednesday through Saturday from 5:00pm
Last seating at 9:00pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and 8:30pm other days
Our restaurant is located in a Victorian heritage building on St Nicholas Street, a quaint street in the heart of downtown near Yonge and Bloor. The house was originally built in the 1880’s in a row of worker’s townhomes. Each house has a name engraved on a stone block – ours is “Hazel Cottage.” “Avelo” means “hazelnut” in Esperanto.
