ABOUT US

Located on idyllic Ward’s Island just steps from the ferry dock, the Island Cafe is the perfect spot for a coffee, brunch, lunch, a home baked treat or a sunset dinner. Our counter service offers take out and an ice cream bar, and our garden patio is fully licensed.

We are a family-owned and family-operated small business; we are long time and life-long Island residents; our food is home cooked and home baked; we want everyone to feel welcome.

WE SUPPORT LOCAL FARMERS

We use locally grown vegetables and fruit from the farmers market at the Ontario Food Terminal, and buy many of our bulk items from the Ontario Natural Food CoopWe also grow herbs, and veggies in our very own garden beside the cafe! Visit Our Garden for more info and pictures!

FEEL GOOD ABOUT THE BURGER YOU'RE EATING

All our meat comes from Sanagan’s Meat Locker, an old-fashioned butcher shop in the heart of Kensington Market. Sanagan’s specializes in meats from small local farmers who ethically raise their animals without the use of antibiotics and hormones.

Try our delicious cookies, muffins, scones, cakes, squares and more! We’re all about old school comfort baking.
