The call for a dedicated vegan and vegetarian eatery in Leslieville is here with the opening of KASPACE.
Launching in the space previously occupied by Sandy Aleksander, the new concept offers a coffee bar and airy and bright cafe.
The menu offers breakfast sandwiches, crepes, parfaits and fresh juices. A bigger brunch menu is available on weekends.
Owner Kevin Allwood launched KASPACE, which is part of the KA brand — part fashion boutique, design studio and gallery on Carlaw Ave.
"I created the KASPACE Cafe as a space that I needed on the daily and couldn't find,” says owner Kevin Allwood. “This sort of cafe/restaurant hybrid just doesn't exist, and in a way that is health-centred —focusing on vegetarian and vegan foods — while being modern and having a good vibe from the minute you walk in.”
From the choice in furnishings to the music and food quality, Allwood says KASPACE is the goal is that everyone leaves feeling better than when they walked in.
“I also desired to create a space that is inspiring for creatives and entrepreneurs — where they can come and find space to concentrate, make their notes over a great cup of coffee or have a meeting with a client - and get their work done. “
“I also thought it was important to include a family vibe; we created a kids nook and play zone for the little ones — something my own daughter appreciates very much.”
The cafe is now open at 1183 Queen St. East. Check out kaspacecafe.com for more.
