This cafe style restaurant has prepared foods. If you are a foodie and interested in saving the planet, this is the place for you. The interior is made from sustainable and recycled materials. The vegetable and fruits are from local organic farmers. All the choices on the menu are pre-made and on display for you to choose from in refrigerated cases. I ordered the Butternut Squash and Beet Salad the beets had a perfect texture and taste. It was my first time having butternut squash and I enjoyed both the texture and taste as well as its combination with the beets. The house water was infused with cucumber and orange. What a delight and so refreshing!
The falafel was delicious. I had the junior Maoz sandwich with sweet potato fries and it was super yummy. I wish they had a Maoz closer to my home. I would be there everyday.
Kombucha on tap, vegan desserts, and a menu anyone can eat from. Located near Ft. Lauderdale Beach so it is convenient. The food is good, I just wished it was organic. This place is a must. I personally liked eating on the outdoor patio area.
Three cheers for a raw food place that has taste. I thoroughly enjoyed the food here. I ate a lettuce taco which had avocado, tomato, and some amazing yummy goodness pate. The veggie soup had a spicy kick to it. I had the "ice cream" delicious chocolate. Totally vegan..I definitely will return.
Pei Wei is an excellent hybrid restaurant. Half fast food / half service staff. I loved the interior with the panels of moving imagery on led (or monitors) that displayed the menus when you walk in. The fact that vegetarian and gluten free options are labeled clearly is a bonus to this restaurant and I am sure to return. The staff was super friendly and helpful and I enjoyed a Veggie Spring Roll and the Tofu and Veggie version of the Sweet and Sour dish. It had been a long time since I had a fortune cookie, that was a sweet surprise when I saw them and they also brought some to our table.
At this Pizza Fusion you order and Pay at the Counter. I ordered a Roasted Beets and Feta salad (I don't eat the feta though) The description of the salad included candied walnuts. When the salad came it looked disappointing, eating it was very disappointing. The beets were as hard as rocks, the candied walnut tasted like regular no frills walnuts. I also ordered a traditional cheese pizza with whole grain crust. The pizza was greasy and the crust was undercooked.
chocolate cake, Kahlua "butter creme", dark chocolate ganache
This dessert was so delicious and vegan...so sublime. I usually don't eat that many desserts because of dairy but I can eat them here.
The pizza was okay. The enchiladas were ok. The reisling was fantastic and so was the micro green salad made with organic tomatoes that were so fresh.
A bit pricey...but the ambience and the service was worth it.
Santosh, the owner greeted me at the door. He is so gregarious. He offered me the Madhuri Masala Dosai it is a 50 inch long crepe with mashed potatoes inside. The crepe was so crispy and delicious almost addicting to break off the pieces and eat piece after piece. The lentil soup was a spicy delight. I recommend eating here.
The menu has six items listed under vegetarian. I had the Italian Vegetarian sandwich on French wheat. It was very tasty, but nothing about it made me feel like I would want to come back to order another one.
The falafel has a spicy kick, it was a pleasant surprise compared to other places I have had it, so I was in love. The garlic potatoes were a delicious alternative to fries.
A treasure downtown, as oasis of wholesome food, some of which is gluten-free. All baked goods are made in house. The restaurant is brand new and features green-consciousness.
This is obviously a hot spot (so crowded we barely got a seat. I think we actually got the last one at 3 pm on a Sunday) I ordered the Black and White Bean salad comes with Black bean hummus and Matzah I like the texture combination. The salad is huge! You have enough for 8 servings at least. The staff is cordial and very helpful. A vegetarian and vegan place for sure.
Ordered the Vegan Burger. Lots of food for the price and delicious and fresh. Super sweet staff and great quiet ambiance, especially late on a Sunday afternoon. This is my new favorite place.
Very good prices. Portions are plentiful and quality is good. The Almost all raw chocolate chip cookie is a small sample of heaven in a satisfying dose. Looking forward to seeing what new things Jorge and Alex bring to the Miami area and the choices they will be offering to the growing Vegan and Vegetarian population here.
So glad this place has veggie dogs. When I crave "junk food" American style I go here.
The veggie burger was moist and was just a veggie burger, the upside was the avocado spread. Would I return because of it? No. The air-baked fries were cold and stale. A disappointment.
A grilled cheese can be made with a variety of cheeses at Grateful Bread, just ask. The carrot juice is like a dessert and it is 100% carrot juice.
I kept trying to go to this place but it is always closed, or a note is on the door stating that they are on vacation...so I finally find the place opened on a Saturday. When I go back to the cafe part of the store, there is no food. I was asked if I needed helped and I asked about the food. I was told that they don't make any fresh food on Saturday but I could have leftovers from yesterday.. WHat!! I don't eat leftovers at my own house and then you want me to pay to eat leftover food. NOT going to happen..
I won't try to go to this place, again
The falafel pita is a favorite of mine. I thought I would give it a try here. Moist and slightly crunchy in spots, this fafafel was perfect. Served with diced tomatoes and a sauce. Delicious and inexpensive.
The daily menu changes. Good vegetarian fare at a good price. Vegan cake available. The juices are fresh when fruits are in season.
I was craving for falafel. I went to the Juice and Java north of this location and they were closed, so I called and this location was opened on Sunday. The falafel was dry and hard, not edible. I was disappointed, last time it was so good. The rest of the fresh veggies were awesome as usual though.
My personal favorites of Juice and Java are the hummus wrap ($6.95) and the falafel wrap ($6.95). The veggies always taste fresh and you get to choose what flavor wrap you would like (wheat, spinach, sun-dried tomato)
The menu is online.
This raw food restaurant comes with a price tag $24 for lunch, no drink, no extras...regular tap water. The "burger" more like a flatbread, sandwiched between two flatbreads made from quinoa...yes the ingredients are raw, but this place cuts out the taste, well at least from their "burger" item it does.
I was turned off immediately by the way they handle the CASH only policy. There is a $7 minimum charge, so you just cannot stop in and get a cup of coffee, otherwise you will be charged $7. The prices were too much for the quality of the food that was served. I could have gone to the grocery store and put the salad together.
If you like the arty scene and want to sample from their selection of beers you might like this place, but if a musician starts performing while you are there you will have to have cash in hand to stay.
Who cares if you are eating your meal while people are washing cars only 50 feet away, the sounds of the car wash sprayers instantly turn into meditative white noise and you take your first bite of an organic delight.
The Chickpea Cakes are sure to please even the pickiest of eaters and a vegetarian to boot. (I am talking about me) The mixtures of flavors are so refreshing, butternut beans, tomato, avocado, lemon vinaigrette and the chickpeas slightly singed around the edges of the patties. I love the taste of toasted things and well done food. But wait there's more.. try the Chocolate Bouchon..( vegetarian and also lactose intolerant makes for interesting restaurant experiences- choices can be limiting for desserts) The staff separated the vanilla ice cream from this amazing warmed chocolate cake with a smooth chocolate filling topped with blackberries.
Go to Metro if you want good Organic Food at reasonable prices, an attentive staff, and amazing desserts.
Oh and the bathrooms are chic and clean, just in case that is important for you to know.
Located in MiMO, Mi Vida cafe is located next to Divine Trash, a vintage sort of store... The cafe has a huge side area that has a plethora of space for outside dining. It is decorated in an eclectic mix of treasures and finds. The food is spiced and priced right. Give the daily specials a try. If you are a vegetarian or vegan living in the Miami area and you have (like me) been looking for the perfect place to eat that also can nourish your body. .put your sneakers on now and run to Mi Vida cafe where your life awaits you.. your new food life.
They are not organic unfortunately. I tried the
Chickpea Parmigiana Burger-Chickpea patty with marinara and Daiya mozzarella
It was quite tasty and from my days of eating Chicken Parmigiana, my taste buds said, "This tastes like Chicken Parmigiana." I need to add I am not sure how accurate by taste bud memory is, so try it for yourself.
Mushaboom is a more of what I think of as a junk food vegan truck. They serve fries and soda too. You can get coconut water and bottles water too.
I would revisit them to try more items off their menu.
Om Garden is a small restaurant and I mean small. The menu has something for any vegetarian, vegan or selective eater such as myself. I ordered a Shakti Baked falafel sandwich with hummus, romaine, tomato, sprouts and cucumber with sweet potatoes ($9) and my companion ordered the Happy Cow Om special veggie burger served on whole wheat pita with lettuce, tomato, sprouts, and a tahini dressing with a side salad.($11) Both of these are cooked entrees. I thought the falafel was a little too dry and I had to mix it into the hummus. I tasted the veggie burger and it was not soy, it was quinoa and chickpeas, plus a few more healthy ingredients. The side salad was super fresh and very tasty and I think I will order that for myself next time. I also ordered a gingerale (FRESH ginger, agave, with carbonated water) delicious! The food is fresh and the menu has a lot to choose from. I will definitely be going back.
Note.. show up to this location two minutes prior to noon and you may miss the line out of the door crowd. This place has decent food for a good price. The staff is okay and the restaurant is clean. It is a bit loud and noisy during lunch. I really love the fortune cookies. I had the Japanese Teriyaki. The vegetables were good, cooked just the way I like them and it was okay...I will try other things off the menu next time.
When entering the restaurant, I was asked if I wanted a vegetarian menu. I ordered the Chicken Mango ( I was confused that it was still called chicken.) I ordered a Mango Slush, too. The meal came with Miso Soup (served in Styrofoam, I didn't like that fact.) The meal also came with brown rice. It was dry and I only took a few bites. The veggie version Chicken Mango was delicious. Something I ate in all of this did not agree with me because when I returned home I felt sick to my stomach.
The vegan cupcakes are fabulous. Everything about them is just right. If you don't tell a non vegan person they are vegan, they would not be able to tell the difference. This is a sweet treat well worth getting!
The side salads are super delicious. I love that they prepared the cucumbers by cutting out the seeds. Though I guess you will have to ask because on my return visit they didn't do that again. The vegan pate is superb.
Not only is this place affordable (even though no prices are listed on the menu), the food is fantastic, a wonderful combination of flavors. Something for every vegetarian or non veggie person. A must try is the soup!!!
I eat at Whole Foods often. They have a hot and cold buffet that you pay for by weight. The rice is hit or miss, sometimes it is good and sometimes it is terrible. The tofu is tasty and you cannot go wrong with the peas. The beets were less than I hoped for, I have had better. Depending on what you like there is a lot to choose from : my favorite being meatless lasagna.
Yes Pasta! is located in the same address as the former tenant Pasha's. The build out is similar, Yes Pasta! kept the bathrooms exactly the same. The atmosphere and the buzz around this two week old restaurant is definitely different.
The interior at Yes Pasta is an eclectic, with modern touches of simplicity and metal juxtaposed with glass and bright blue on painted chairs that give more of a homier vibe, the urge to sit down and try a glass of wine just happens.
When you order the pasta dishes you are really ordering the sauce the pasta goes in and you choose the pasta you would like. Whole wheat and gluten free pastas are available. The Primera, sauteed vegetables, is butter rich. Not realizing this (since I rarely ever eat pasta and wanted to give this place a try) I ate some and thought this is good and then an alarm went off in my head...what is making this taste good, it wasn't the pasta, it wasn't the vegetables...it is butter!! ( I am not supposed to eat butter. I should have asked before I ordered about ingredients and told the waiter of my needs..but the newbie waiter here couldn't verify that it was butter, he had to ask) I felt bad, I usually never return food. I asked however if they would make me a smaller portion only with olive oil instead of butter. It was amazing, I could taste the pasta and the vegetables were much better. I ate the mushrooms. Before the mushrooms were of no interest to me and now I was excited to partake of them.
Yes Pasta is located in a row of restaurants off of Biscayne Blvd. It is a nice area to dine and walk. The pasta portions are big and it is served hot. Being a new restaurant, the staff is not yet knowledgeable of the ingredients in the dishes, I hope that changes. Though I might not return to eat Pasta, I am interested in their other offerings, salads, and paninis- oh and the wine.
If you like the tart, sour tasting frozen soft yogurts..this is your treat. I personally did not prefer it.
Wow the organic eating here is clean, fresh, and the menu has plenty to choose from. I visited twice before writing this review, The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable about the cuisine. The restaurant is airy. People are not sitting and eating on top of each other. I was impressed by the mixture of tastes that were crafted for each entree. This is a must try. If you like chocolate, Christopher's Kitchen has a whole case of freshly made chocolate goodies made with agave and maple syrup as the sweetener.
Had a cup of the vegan split pea and was very pleased. Delicious, not salty a good value for the money too.
Smoothies with a variety of combinations and not sweet. They have the taste that one would expect from a raw food vegan place. I was unable to finish my smoothie. The taste and the combination of the grapefruit, mango, and pecans of the Mango Mousse smoothie did not agree with me.
When many restaurants were closed for St Jean, we found Fushsia opened. This very small restaurant encourages communal dining as most of the seats are grouped together in the middle of the restaurant/store. The Rosemary Tea was fantastic as were the Rose Biscuits. The water is infused with mint...beyond refreshing. One must go to truly experience the wonderful flavors and the old world feel to this place.
This vegan/vegetarian place is on a must know where it is basis: NO sign on the door, No sign over the door, No sign near the door or on the window or on the floor and no address number. A true wonder if people ever stumble across this location. You must know where it exists first, which is how I found it. For 5,99, I purchased a flavorful falafel sandwich (soft and moist on the inside and super crispy on the outside) with plenty of salad fixings.. ie sprouts. 6,99 for a veggie burger. If you wish to take out bring your own container to show that you are truly green or pay extra.
This place is great for any vegetarian in need of options or you can have it all. Fresh fruit or hot dishes, like pizza, lasagna, burritos, and/or hot cooked vegetables. The price is always right because you pay for what you choose. I totally recommend this place...the food always tastes good.
I usually frown at Buffets. I am not crazy about them. For Commensal, I made an exception and I smiled. Vegan and vegetarians can eat their food by weight here, so perfect. Variety at the perfect price. The lasagna was more than satisfying. My favorite of the dishes I selected was the apple and beets salad. Superb. Because the desserts looked so tempting, I took a chocolate brownie..so thick and rich.
A nice treat was to eat the fresh sprouts...raw food heaven.
I completed my meal by sipping on green tea.
I definitely recommend this place.
I was surprised to find that Walt Disney World had veggie burgers. It was tasty and you could even see the sprouts in it. It did not seems like a regular Veggie Burger it was moister than the ones I have had before. Kudos to Walt Disney.
