Going out to eat doesn’t have to be unhealthy, and eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring. 

Here are some restaurants that don’t limit your raw food options to a side salad:

Cafe Bliss

Raw meal: Greek Noodle Bowl, made with kelp and zucchini noodles, with cashew feta.

The majority of Cafe Bliss’ ingredients are local and organic, and nothing they make contains processed sugar, dairy, or gluten. Don’t forget to try their cheezecakes for dessert!

  • Hours: Monday — Saturday, 11 a.m. — 6 p.m.
  • Location: 556 Pandora Avenue

Be Love

Raw meal: ZLT, zacon lettuce tomato sandwich with avocado and maple-mustard aioli.

No processed sugar, dairy, or gluten here, either. They also serve a “Karma Bowl,” and $1 of the price you pay  is donated to the Mustard Seed Food Bank.

  • Hours: Sunday — Thursday, 11 a.m. — 9:30 p.m.
    Friday & Saturday, 11 a.m. — 10 p.m.

Vegan Hippie-Chick

Raw meal: Pizza, burgers, tacos, desserts… the list goes on. Notably, The Dude Pizza is topped with bacun made from coconut.

The majority of Vegan Hippie-Chick’s offerings are raw, so if you’re looking for variety then you’ve found your place. Where else are you going to find raw cinnamon rolls?

    Saturday, 10 a.m. — 5 p.m.
