WILLIE’S CAFÉ: Walk Over to Willie’s In the Old East Village

Written by Local Flavour

Willie’s Café.

Located in the heart of the Old East Village, Willie’s Café is a short walk from the Western Fair District, 100 Kellogg and Downtown — the perfect stop for an outstanding lunch or to start your day right with a healthy breakfast and superior coffee.

The Scene

Originally the Somerville Box Factory and later the O-Pee-Chee Candy Factory, an impressive turn-of-the-century yellow brick building has been lovingly converted into a multi-use space. Tall ceilings, original wood floors, exposed brickwork and large windows create a bright, inviting and relaxing space for Willie’s Café. Comfortable seating, fresh flowers, and outstanding food and service complete the picture.

Menu Highlights

Owner Ian Kennard and his amazing staff share one core belief: “Willie’s is all about eating real food.” The menu features daily homemade soups, fresh salads, delicious sandwiches, wraps and desserts. Local suppliers and vendors are supported. All the beef, turkey, pork and chicken are cooked in-house to ensure a fresh, preservative-free meal.
Freshly baked goods are all produced on premise, and even the full Espresso Bar features coffee roasted in the building, by Fire Roasted Coffee. Invigorate your morning with your favourite caffeine beverage, muffin, donut or sweet, and Willie’s Kickstart Breakfast Sandwich — made with espresso mayo!

Willie’s Homemade Beverages

Other recommendations include the sautéed Warm Spinach Salad topped with crumbled feta cheese; the signature Cranberry Turkey Wrap; and the Jerk Chicken Wrap — oven-roasted, sautéed and spicy on a flour tortilla with curried mayonnaise.
Be sure to check out the other vendors and businesses at 630 Dundas. Willie’s is just one part of a vibrant community.
