I visited GRO a couple weeks ago and found it to be a nice and quaint little restaurant. I have been a vegetarian for over 15 yrs and wanted to try Raw Vegan food.

To start off, I tried the Onion Rings which were good. They had a different texture that I was used to, as I had only had regular fried onion rings.

Then I had the Raw Zucchini Pasta and Nut Balls which was great! Super yummy!

My friend had the spicy noodles which were great also.

The chocolates and the Apple Cake were my favorite!! :) YUM! My daughter had the local berry smoothie which was tasty! The Hot Cocoa was good too!

They didn't have all the kids menu items on hand (ie almond butter/jelly sandwich) but that was because they were in the process of switching over to a new owner.

I will most likely be visiting again very soon! Worth the 1 hour drive :)

I was so excited to see Portland's first raw restaurant! The food there is fresh and tasty. I felt good about ordering anything on the menu. Everything is good for you and makes you feel great. Portland needs more healthy places around with a positive atmosphere.
