Toronto, ON M5T 2Z6
Inspired by the scenes in London and Paris, Café Plenty is a slice of Europe in the heart of Toronto. Owner Melissa Patterson’s charming spot aims to satiate lunch-goers’ craving for good, honest food and tempting the hungry with freshly made salads, tartes, galettes and sandwiches. “We make everything from scratch,” Patterson says. “That’s pretty unusual for a café!” Café Plenty’s original menu was created by Scot Woods (Lucien) and taken over by Elana Storm (O&B), lending her own twist to the café fare. While on a culinary tour of France, Storm gobbled down many a pan bagnat — Provence’s quintessential street food — with gusto. The tuna niçoise sandwich ($10) is her take on the sidewalk staple. Along with sandwiches, the menu is chock full of healthy eats that are perfect for the grab-and-go crowd.
