Sage Cafe is a delightful little restaurant found in Toronto’s Baldwin Village (just south of Baldwin on McCaul) that is a favourite lunch spot amongst many of my co-workers. The cafe prepares fresh eclectic food daily and the majority of the meals are vegetarian friendly.
Sage is a great spot if you’re craving a savoury home cooked style meal. It was a particularly cold and windy afternoon here in Toronto and there was nothing that I wanted more than a hearty lunch that would warm me right up. My friend and I went on a lunch date to Sage and managed to cop a couple of seats at a table in the back room of the cafe. Sage always features an assortment of fresh vegetarian food including: Salads, Quiches, Pasta, Pizza, Soups and Vegetarian or Vegan Wraps. AND, if you’re headed to Sage with an omnivore friend (like me), the cafe has plenty of chicken and fish options as well.
I ordered the pasta of the day, Rigatoni with Fresh Herbs, Artichokes, Black Olives and Tomatoes, which came with the option of a side salad or soup. I picked the Tomato Basil Soup, because it’s a must have at Sage. The pasta hit the spot and the tomato basil soup was as flavourful and delectable as I remembered. I left Sage very satisfied!
Sage and head Chef Wendy Hernick have been in the neighbourhood for over 10 years and the restaurant operates both as a cafe and catering business. For more information on catering visit: http://www.sagecafeandcatering.com/. Special thanks to the lovely Emily for joining me at lunch today!
