100% Vegan and Raw Food Restaurant

Restaurant, Coffee/Tea/Juice, Grocery/Bakery/Deli, Caterer

Deli style environs serving completely vegan, mostly organic, and raw foods.

Sizable selection of juices, salads, wraps, pates, and soups. They offer a few desserts, and have 4 kinds of raw ice cream.

The dining area is not particularly intimate, but is quite large and can accommodate a large group. They also have a large room in the back, where they sometimes have guest speakers and lectures on raw, health, and vegan topics.

I like this place only for a quick salad. Great place for raw fooders.

It's a nice place to grab a quick lunch because their salad bar already has everything prepared so they can easily whip you up a salad, sandwich, or wrap in a few minutes. They have a good selection of pates and salad fixins but could use more desserts.

I like their 1lb. sample platter because it allows you to try some of everything. I particularly like the macadamia nut meat and this cauliflower/carrot/green bean mixture, but I'm not a fan of the squash salad or pumpkin/poppy pate.

I tried the blueberry/banana ice cream, and wasn't impressed, particularly because it was $5 for what tasted like a banana pureed with frozen blueberries.
