Favourites: Carob brownies, Curried potato bowl, Minced Chunks Spring Wrap
THIS IS THE GREATEST THING I’VE EVER DISCOVERED! OMG the people there are SO NICE, the cafe is AMAZING, the food is absolutely TOP and everything about this place is simply the best. I LOVE going there so much, and it was one of the greatest experiences ever! I particularly loved just how filling and huge those bowls are, perfect for my giant appetite! Their food is also extremely tasty and flavourful!
Address: 3711 Cahuenga Blvd, Studio City, CA 91604
Price range: $12 average meal, though some are more and some are less.
Favourites: Lettuce Taco and Garlic Bread
OMG, I went there to check it out cos it was organic and the raw taco completely blew me away. I never imagined raw food would taste so good. This shop can freaking make ANYONE a fan of raw vegan food because of the way they prepare it! I LOVE their Sunchorizo, their vegan version of a sausage. It tasted so spectacular that I savoured every last bite. Also, their garlic bread without butter IS SIMPLY AMAZING, I don’t think anyone can tell the difference!
Address: 639 N Larchmont Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90004
Price range: Between $8-13 on average
Unfortunately this cafe is a bit hard to get to without a car, like you really need to be able to drive there, and I was lucky to meet up with someone who was happy to go with me. But, it has absolutely amazing food! Absolutely delicious vegan food that they put in surpreme tasting sauces and it actually made me like bean sprouts, and I NEVER like them! I LOVE their desserts, all the dairy free desserts taste just like those with it.
Address: 702 S Spring St, Los Angeles CA, 90014
Price Range: About $7 per juice
Favourites: Cleanse Guru #12, Greenest #3
WOOOOW their juices were so amazing! I never would’ve imagined a green juice with celery would taste so divine, yet it does, with only apple being the sweetener! Seriously their cleanse juice has to be one of the greatest things ever, made from coconut water, cucumber and pineapple juice. I also LOVE their aloe vera water.
Address: SE corner of 7th and Spring St (next to Juice Crafters)
Price Range: $5 per panini
Favourites: Vegan #4 and #5
I LOVE how there’s a panini place right next to Juice Crafters and they opened pretty early (9am) compared to many others, so it was nice to get a bit of food in after drinking my juice. I absolutely love their vegan paninis, it was so simple to make, yet the taste was just amazing. I LOVE that they don’t use any unhealthy ingredients in those, only balsamic vinegar and olive oil just gave it such rich taste.
