A friend and I went last night to give Raintree a try. First, love that they switched to a plant based menu, as vegan options in the kw region are limited. The place itself is a small cafe, but has a cute atmosphere. The food...More

I met some friends here for lunch. The menu is brief. I had the BLT wrap. It was not a BLT. It was mostly lettuce and runny dressing. It had some pork belly and a token cherry tomato. There were limited cold drinks. I had...More

Seasonal menu items, and long time favorites make this a refreshing stop. Attentive servers and a good atmosphere all lend to a unique experience.

Used to be a great place for a light lunch. Today's lunch was well below the quality that we were expecting. I think what was most disturbing is that our server came by and asked how our meal was. Our response was "terrible". At the...More

Just loved this restaurant, great food, service and the fact that it wasn't a cookie cutter, same old same old little restaurant. Great select of food for everyone, vegan and gluten free options as well. I would recommend giving them a try!

Tried the pasta which was served hot and tasted nice. It was fresh and I enjoyed my meal. Will always come here for Italian food and recommended the place to many people I know

This place used to be a gem, however new owners have really let this place down. From poor decore, to cheap food all the way to bad service. It wont be long before this place closes its doors as customer service is last at this...More

Raintree Café has been a favourite restaurant in Waterloo for nearly 20 years. We are starting a lively new chapter in the Tree's history under new Owner and Chef Paul Cummings. Paul's passion for fresh, local, healthy food is a perfect match for Raintree. Our new Menu is plant based, fully vegetarian and full of excitment and flavour.
