Bakery and Sandwich Shop

Restaurant, Coffee/Tea/Juice

Cafe Indigo is probably most famous as a supplier of vegan cakes to restaurants and Whole Foods Markets in Boston. In addition to its fabulous array of desserts, it also has a variety of vegan sandwiches, salads, soups and wraps.

Note that they serve brunch only on the second and fourth Sundays of each month; otherwise, they are closed on Sundays.

What an unusual and tasty cafe! What I love about Cafe Indigo is that they do all of their food from scratch---their bread is made on site, as is their seitan, and obviously the famous carrot cake. You rarely see restaurants go to such lengths; most are happy to just use the pre-made stuff their distributor sells to them. Cafe Indigo takes no shortcuts and the payoff is big.

I had the pepper steak sandwich on their home-made whole wheat bread ($9) as my lunch. The bread and the seitan were both high-grade and well-done. I think the portion size was small, though, and I could have done without the blue tortilla chips and the tasty (but irrelevant) side of cole slaw that came with it.

For dessert I had a slice of the carrot cake ($3.75) and a mini chocolate ganache cupcake ($0.75). The former was excellent and lived up to the hype: moist, not too sweet, and not too carrot-y. The chocolate ganache cupcake, however, was dense and dry and not great.

The service is friendly. You place your order up front and then go sit down. It took me a moment to realize that.

Lastly, the cafe is in a weird location. It appears to be in a suburban storage complex with a bunch of non-food businesses, which probably keeps the rent down, but also might limit the customer base (no one would ever guess that there's a cafe amidst a bunch of warehouses and karate studios).

All in all, I applaud Cafe Indigo for going the extra mile and serving tasty food that takes no shortcuts. It's rare in this world.

I haven't been to the restaurant, but I had the seitan in a burrito from Hermanos Cocina Mexicana, which was very good, and a whoopie pie from the Concord Coop, which knocked my socks off. I cannot wait to visit this restaurant.
