About Avelo

Avelo’s tasting menus

Avelo’s goal is to stretch the boundaries of plant-based cuisine. This involves plenty of creativity, geared towards a more adventurous diner.

Instead of a traditional menu, you will only know what each course is as we serve it to you.

Prices for tasting menus: 5-course $65/person, 8-course $120/person

Our building

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 as a worker’s cottage, along with the other 9 row houses on the block. Each house has a name engraved on a stone block – ours is “Hazel Cottage.” “Avelo” means “hazelnut” in Esperanto.

A plant-based collective

We are a group of dedicated individuals, working together to provide our guests with an exceptional experience in plant-based dining.

Our team members have worked in a wide range of restaurants the world over. We work collaboratively, drawing on this broad knowledge and experience to create our eclectic style of service. Our dishes reflect the heritage and culture of our team members, applied through seasonal Canadian produce. We believe that the combined talents of a skilled group can produce far more creativity than any individual could.
