Respond to Review of The Present Moment Cafe and Market
by Julie R
Review: First, I am not usually a raw person - mainly because it's not an option where I live and I don't see places like this too often. I visit lots of vegan / vegetarian places, but rarely raw - and, I admit, I was skeptical. WOW! Were my eyes opened today. This was one of the best meals I have ever had. I decided early on I was going to love this place from the moment I walked in. It's so cute and charming and my server could not have been nicer or friendlier; a very warm, welcoming atmosphere. Having no idea what to order, I started with a butternut and potato soup (served warm). It was beyond delicious! Just so full of flavor. My lunch was the Land and Sea Salad Plate (scoop of unTuna pate sunflower and almond pate topped with a lemon caper sauce plus marinated sea vegetable served with crisp, live, corn chips and a citrus green salad). It was so delicious I can't even do it justice trying to describe it. I had no idea what the unTuna was, but I loved it. This was a whole new dining experience for me and I can't wait to go back! The owner of this cafe came over and was talking to me. She was so nice and explained what everything was. It was such a delightful experience for me, I hope this review encourages people to go to this cafe -- even if it's a bit of a drive, you won't be disappointed. Some of the other reviews, while all good, did mention it was pricey. I noticed that on the menu; however, when my meal came ($9, not too bad), it was worth every penny - from the beautiful presentation to the abundant flavor, it was just perfect and very much worth the price. I don't mind paying for a meal when it's this delicious. They also have free wi-fi and serve you a karafe of water with lemon in it - I like that not having to keep asking for water. There's free parking around the back of the cafe. All-in-all -- Fantastic! If I could give it 10 Happy Cows, I would!
