Across the street from the Kitchener Market in DTK, you’ll find the small but mighty Yeti Cafe. Opening their doors in 2012 the eclectic cafe draws a loyal local crowd and features a similarly playful menu.

Serving up loaded egg sandwiches, creative brekkie plates, and vegan friendly options, the eclectic decor and friendly vibe make it a perfect spot to start your day.

Must-try picks include the popular “Brunchie” sandwich, stacked with peameal, cheddar, scrambled eggs, caramelized onion, and greens, all smeared with garlic aioli and Dijon on sourdough. (Talk about an upgrade from the typical bodega-style egg and cheese sandwich!)

The Yeti’s unique menu and welcoming atmosphere creates an epic breakfast experience that keeps locals and visitors coming back for more.
