What I Ordered
I ordered the Blueberry Cheesecake Smoothie, a Bacon Avocado Tomato Sandwich on Living Bread, and grabbed a ready-made box of Cookie Dough Nut balls. First off, the sandwich has to be the best tasting raw sandwich I’ve had to date. Savory house-made Eggplant Bacon, sliced Avo, fresh Sprouts, and a creamy Cashew Sauce piled on the best live bread ever! The raw bread is made with Buckwheat Grouts, Flaxseeds, Olive Oil, Water, and Salt, creating a moist yet dense and lip-smacking good bread. The Smoothie made with banana, cherry, cashew, and lemon was thick and yummy. The cashew-based Cookie Dough Balls were very sweet with a strong coconut flavor, and a bit on the dry side, but still enjoyable.
Located in a little cottage type house with a lovely outdoor patio, the warm and welcoming space speaks charm at every glance. Table seating is provided in cozy petitioned sections with nice pops of color, greenery, and character aplenty. Window seating is offered at a bar running across the front wall of the cafe.
