The restaurant’s lighting is a little bit dim, so if you are looking for a more well lit space, request to sit in the front seating area where there is natural light through large windows. Vagabond offers lunch, dinner, and drink menus, which all feature good contrast and readable font size. At the time of visiting, the music was kept fairly low in volume, but when planning your visit it is important to keep in mind that a live DJ performs every Thursday to Saturday evenings from 6pm onwards.

The closest accessible subway station is Queen, which is approximately 700m north of Vagabondo on Yonge Street. Vagabondo can also be easily reached using the accessible King streetcar and you would be getting out at either Yonge Street or Church Street. If arriving by car, there is an underground Green P parking lot located south of the restaurant at 2 Church Street. There are gradual curb cuts at the intersection of Wellington and Leader Lane and the sidewalk in front of the restaurant was free of barriers.
