Respond to Review of Cafe Blossom - Upper West Side - temporarily closed
Review: I was excited after reading some pretty good reviews. But I think since I am spoiled from having the best of a lot of veg eateries in Los Angeles & Seattle that it takes A LOT to impress me. That Disclaimer being said, I thought Blossom was pretty good, but not head over heels worthy of love. I ordered the BLT and added avo & cheese (turned out to be follow your heart) w/ sweet potato fries. The sandwich was pretty good--the tempeh was housemade. But- c'mon-how about some housemade cashew cheese too!? I was sad I got a bad batch of the fries, 1/2 were teeny tiny and crunchy-burnt. The other 1/2 was tasty. My guy got a better batch. He ordered a Southern BBQ style sandwich on a ciabatta roll also. We got a side of potato salad (huge portion). Both sandwiches were tasty. The service was prompt and the decor quite nice. Also, if you order a fresh juice get the PINK LADY--it IS truly AWESOME! Last thing to note, VERY EXPENSIVE, all our food came out to $60. This place is like Real Food Daily's little sister, it wants to be like Big Sis, has similar DNA, but still has a way to go.
