Ultimate Guide Reviews
Earthbeam Natural Foods This is a wonderful market - the kind of store where you look around for more things to buy just to support their business. The staff is sweet and patient. Earthbeam carries lots of tasty vegan and raw items, including Que Se Raw Se Raw food when the latter is closed. 5 stars 2008-10-29
Suraj Indian Cuisine The staff really seems to get it about vegans wanting to avoid animal products, and one waiter stopped me when I accidentally ordered something cooked in a cream sauce. You wouldn't expect it from the location (across from Target), but it's lovely and peaceful inside. We frequently order take-out here, and even large orders are always precise and well-packed. Very nice, professional service. 4.5 stars 2008-10-29
Garden Fresh I always order a lot so I can have leftovers to look forward to the next day. Even my non-veg husband loves Garden Fresh, and he is often a harsh judge of Chinese restaurants. I like the Black Pepper "Chicken". The "drumsticks" are the ONLY veg "meat" my 4 year old will eat ANYWHERE, and my 7 year old loves the noodle soup, so it's very family friendly, but my omnivorous mother was unimpressed. 5 stars 2008-10-29
Cafe Soulstice I love everything I've had here, but do note that it's 100% RAW (except possibly the quinoa). I love the chocolate maca smoothie, but my 7 year old swears by the raspberries and cream smoothie. My 5 year old prefers the chocolate cream pie, and my favorite item is the Superfood Cluster. Sleek, non-cozy ambiance. Lots of buses run on El Camino (half block away); also plenty of free parking. 5 stars 2008-10-29
Que seRaw seRaw This small storefront is home to delectable raw food. If I know I'll be in the area, I call ahead and ask the wonderful owner to set aside several pieces of the pesto pizza for me; it keeps fine in the fridge for as long as I've ever been able to resist it (2 days?). This is the first place I ever bought KAIA's raw granola. You can watch the lovely staff work in the open kitchen. 5 stars 2008-10-29
New Leaf Market It's a lot like Whole Foods, except even friendlier staff, especially in the deli. Excellent selection of raw items. Delicious rice dish with yams in deli. They have both salted and unsalted Earth Balance "butter". Fresh vegan cupcakes in bakery - yum! 5 stars 2008-10-28
Cafe Gratitude You will appreciate this restaurant a lot more if you are a raw food enthusiast. I love the vibe, but certainly it's not for everyone. The people here are all about loving the world, enjoying the journey, and making yourself vulnerable and open to all that life has to offer. Awesome desserts! My daughter's favorite is the I Am Joy chocolate coconut confection. I love the raw ice cream. 5 stars 2008-10-10
Vegan Sweeties I placed a custom order for frosted cupcakes for my daughter's birthday party. Both the chocolate and vanilla flavors and frostings were delicious. They pleased my daughter, her friends, and my husband, all of whom are non-veg. The owner is super nice and responsive. Very reasonable prices. Awesome customer service. 5 stars 2008-04-23
Rojoz Gourmet Wraps Their website is http://rojozpaloalto.com/index.htm. The Taj Mahal and the Acropolis wraps are both fabulous. Wholewheat tortillas are available upon request. The ambiance isn't great, but the fresh, delicious food and low prices are worth it. $6 for a satisfying vegan take-out meal? I just wish I lived closer! 5 stars 2008-04-23
Bistro Luneta The 2 vegan dishes are the only things I've ordered, but I've been there twice and Luneta was fantastic both times. The chef has done something magical to tofu to create the Crispy Tokwa. The atmosphere is nice for a dinner with friends or a date, and it's not unfriendly to families. It's convenient to 101, but otherwise not a super location. 5 stars 2008-04-23
Whole Foods Market If you want to eat there, it's not as luxurious as the San Mateo Whole Foods, with less seating and fewer deli options, but for shopping it's excellent. They have lovely fresh produce, tons of meat and dairy alternatives, Earth Balance butter, etc. It's also the only store I've found which carries quarts of unsweetened soy yogurt. Very friendly staff. 4.5 stars 2008-04-23
Cafe Soulstice If it weren't so expensive, I would eat here every meal, every day. If you like raw food, you'll be in heaven. Take-out service can be slow, but one bite of the raw "pumpkin pie" will make you forget the wait. I loved my raw "burger" on its raw "bun", too. This restaurant makes a raw diet seem totally feasible, and they even sell their cookbook on site. 4.5 stars 2008-04-23
